Event Description

Saturday, Feb 15 | 1:00 - 4:00 pm | $39 with Louise Upton Learn how to build strong foundations for you to develop a solid handstand practice. In this workshop, you will learn the upside down skills & exercises you need to help you strengthen your physical practice, as well as learn how to gain confidence & let go of fears. The handstand practice is a journey! Whether it’s the start of your journey or you’ve been on it for a while now, this workshop is for you! This 3 hour long workshop will involve an asana/yoga class based on preparing the body. We will take a closer look at the alignment of the pose & break it down from the floor up. We will then dive into some drills you can take home to practice with yourself. Bio: Louise was first drawn to yoga purely for the physical aspect. It was to mend and strengthen her aching body from constantly physically exerting herself with high intensity sports. What she did not realize at the time was that this would be one of the things that would flip her whole world upside down and put her on this amazing path of self-discovery. Through yoga, she has found a deep connection with herself as well as a community of like-minded people. Yoga has taught her how to be more compassionate. How to be more open-minded. How to be kind to herself. How to listen to her body and soul so that she can nourish both. She has learned how to breathe when breathing seems to be the last thing one could possibly do. In June 2014, Louise completed her 200 YTT with Julia McCabe in Pemberton, BC. Teaching yoga has brought her to Japan, twice, teaching in a ski town & spending her time snowboarding in paradise. Her love of snow, mountain town vibes, and beautiful views has finally brought her to Revelstoke. She has taught a wide variety of yoga from gentle restorative & yin classes to power vinyasa classes. Louise believes in alignment and integrity within ones practice. Louise loves to let her personality shine with thoughtful, fun, integrated, and heart filled classes.
