Intrigued by the idea of balancing on your hands but don’t have the time to deeply explore the poses in a regular yoga class? Then join Sue Cushing for a workshop dedicated to refining postures such as handstand and forearm balance. We will warm up the body with a vinyasa style practice. Then, safely and intelligently, we will break down the components of the poses and work toward the inversions. 1 year of consistent yoga practice and some experience with inversions is recommended. This is a great class for students who are both beginning inversions as well as those with strong inversion practices who want to deepen their abilities.
Sue discovered yoga in 2001 after being laid off from a job in technology — which confirmed that when a door closes, a window opens. One class was all it took for her to find that place in life where you can truly be comfortable in your skin. Yoga provides a space without judgment and expectation and allows students to focus on cultivating the positive aspects of their physical and mental selves. Yoga can be whatever you need it to be — a gentle or intense physical work out, a mindful meditation, a simple act of kindness, and so many things in between. Sue has experienced many styles of yoga including Ashtanga, Hatha, and Forrest and blends the styles together into a fluid vinyasa practice that focuses on increasing flexibility, building strength and understanding the individual body through intelligent sequencing. After so many years of practice, Sue loves that she has only begun to scratch the surface of yoga. She completed her 200-hour teaching certification with Natasha Rizopoulos through YogaWorks, is a Registered Yoga Teacher through Yoga Alliance and continues to deepen her yoga education through workshops and master classes.
