Inversion Immersion: Demystifying Inversions w/ Kelly Love
Whether you are an instructor looking to teach inversions safely or a student who wants to better understand and deepen your practice of advanced postures, this workshop will help take your practice to the next level. Turning your world upside down can often be scary, especially because we spend most, if not all of it, right-side up!
In this workshop, we will break down the components of headstand, handstand, forearm balance and shoulderstand starting from the foundation of each pose. We will focus on warming up the necessary muscle groups required to support each structure and discuss limitations and modifications to make the postures safe and accessible.
By demystifying the complexity of these postures, you will take actionable steps to deepen your personal practice and your ability to teach.
January 7th 1-6pm, $75
Kelly Love fell in love with yoga after stumbling into her first class over a dozen years ago. At first, it was another discipline to complement her teaching arsenal of high energy fitness classes, but it quickly became the light that opened her eyes to the mind-body connection.
Kelly received her 200-hour teaching certification from Philadelphia’s Power Yoga Works in 2006 and spent the next several years exploring a variety of different styles with nationally known teachers such as Simon Park, Beryl Bender Birch, and others. As Kelly refined her teaching style and gravitated more towards an alignment based practice, she completed her Wall Vinyasa certification with Erica Bleznak in 2015 and has recently completed her 500-hour training with anatomy guru, Jason Crandell, in San Francisco.
In addition to yoga, Kelly is also certified to teach both mat and reformer Pilates which provides a solid foundation for any class she teaches, whether its yoga or pilates. Having been in the fitness industry for over two decades, Kelly draws from her knowledge and experiences in teaching other disciplines to offer a well-rounded yoga practice that is educational yet playful, challenging yet accessible, and exploratory yet functional. Step into one of Kelly’s classes and you are sure to experience her passion for not only alignment based yoga and core work, but music in the form of collaborative and creative playlists. Song requests and singing welcome!
