Getting Started with Inversions

Getting Started with Inversions

Hi everyone! As promised on instagram last week, here is the Supportive Yoga Guide to Getting Started with Inversions.  I’ve spent a lot of time over the years figuring out these poses for my body and I am super stoked to share what I’ve learned with you.  So if you think you would never be able to go upside down, or you look at those crazy inverted poses on instagram and wonder how you can build up to that point, this video is for you!  We’ll tackle the prep poses, talk about how you know whether you are strong enough to give these poses a shot and I’ll show you how to use the wall (no other props required!) to build your inversion practice!

As I say about 5000 times in the video, I’m only teaching handstand and forearm stand and not headstand or shoulder stand.  Why?  Because I firmly believe that learning those poses over the internet is a terrible idea.  A safety disaster.  Your neck is precious and I really don’t want you to injure it – it’s not hard to do.  If you are interested in these poses, please find a qualified teacher in your area to help you!  Ok, enough lecture!  Here’s the video:

And here are links to the videos I mention at the end: hallway handstand and chair headstand.

Please let me know if you have any questions and happy practicing!!
