Intro to Handstands: Beyond the Wall

Did you come to WVPY's Intro to Handstand Workshop in November and want to learn more? Or, do you get upside-down on a regular basis at a wall and are ready to break free? We've got a workshop for that!!
Monday, January 16th from 7:00-9:00pm at WVPY Corvallis join me for a 2  hour workshop focused on standing on your hands without the support of a wall.

You will learn how to build strength and control, overcome fear and get upside-down in the center of a room. We will focus on the key elements required to hold your body in space and create awareness of alignment so you can safely and powerfully create your own handstand practice. 

This powerful and transformational practice is designed to take you to new levels of growth and mastery on and off your mat and will inspire, ignite, and create possibility. 

This workshop is lead by Certified Baptiste teacher Melinda Luksch.

$25 (10% off for WVPY members) 

The class will include a short warm up, however joining us for the 5:30pm class right before is recommended!
