30-hour Inversion Immersion: Hands as Feet

With Daniel Morgan & Neha Duseja

Dan and Neha fuse their knowledge from diverse movement practices and yoga training together to bring you an in depth and informative exploration of inversions – both theoretically & in physical practice. This training will focus on everything from Plank, Crow and Crane to Headstand, Forearm-stand, handstands and other core and arm balancing poses and transitions – to give you the tools and knowledge to understand, master and teach each of the poses with complete confidence. 

This training is open to teachers who want to deepen their understanding of inversions and to teach their students with a greater wealth of knowledge and experience. As this a CPD training, it is assumed that each student has at least a basic level of anatomy knowledge, asana practice, and a confidence and desire to practice arm balances & inversions.

Although this training is designed with continued development as a teacher in mind, all yoga practitioners are welcome to attend. However if you are a practitioner and not currently a teacher, we recommend that if you want to teach the work, that you do this training in conjunction with a 200 hr training.

Here is what you can expect from the training:

  • Warm Up protocols
  • How to safely and effectively assist / adjust arm and hand balances
  • Understand and learn to teach your students how to achieve both Strength & Stability + Mobility & Flexibility with various drills and skill Progressions + Regressions, to get your students or yourself safely from A-B
  • Understanding Basic Competency – basic physical assessments to indicate a students level of capability – what are your students ready for? Is it your job to guide them?
  • Learn the benefits and counter-indications of an inversions Practice
  • Understanding fear – The physical effects anxiety has on our Asana (physical) Practice and why
  • Functional anatomy and physiology of inversions
  • Technique classes for each of the postures, with applicable progressions and regressions
  • Learn to fly – the understanding and application of float mechanics
  • Incorporation of jump through, jump back, crow, handstand, handstand press into your vinyasa
  • Sequencing for a safe and effective arm-balance classes
  • Sequencing for a safe an effective inversions Class
  • And more…

This training will be run across the four days, and will be an informative & fun learning experience. We hope to see you upside down on the mat soon!

Much love, Dan + Neha

More about Neha

Neha is a RYT 600 certified, international yoga teacher, who’s journey began eight years ago as a means to balance work life and a rigorous gym workout. Her love affair with yoga began in the hot room. Neha then began practicing Ashtanga and finally Vinyasa where she found her passion for arm balances, inversions and transitions. Going beyond the physical, she realized that yoga is mental stretch. Stretching limitations, imaginations and possibilities! Her love for inversions, especially handstands, has seen her train with internationally renowned experts in hand balancing, yoga, calesthenics and movement. The journey of a handstand transformed her life and it is this change that she hopes to bring to the lives of all her students!
