Upside Down: Inversion Workshop

  • Savasana Station 212 Avenue B New York, NY, 10009 United States (map)

Inversions trigger different emotions for each of us – but whether you love them or hate them, we all benefit from turning our perspectives upside down.

Your teacher: Jewels Ziff Sint

In this workshop we will focus on headstand (sirsasana) and shoulderstand (sarvangasana), sometimes called the king and queen of asana practice, plus other postures to turn our worldview upside down. We will pay careful attention to proper neck alignment, use props to support and assist us, and work on strength-building and alignment feel comfortable and stable.  

Getting up into a headstand isn’t a requirement for this workshop. One can participate in all of the strengthening and opening postures.

Date: Saturday July 23rd

Time: 1:00 - 3:00pm

Jewels Ziff Sint

In her classes, Jewels emphasizes body awareness to promote alignment and balance, blending spirituality with playfulness. Jewels has studied yoga and other modalities in the east and west, and is grateful to so many teachers for their influences. Off the mat, you may find her in the kitchen, dancing her heart out, or biking between Alphabet City and her job with nonprofit organizations. When you hear a cyclist chanting mantra, bike streamers flying, give Jewels a wave!
