Join us for an exciting two-part workshop for both students + teachers alike! Led by Madison Baldini, 200-RYT + Jeremiah Elliott, 500-RYT, ERYT-200 + YACEP, this two-part workshop will focus on progressions toward headstand + different ways to approach the skill. In part one, students will explore range of motion + strength drills to build toward a headstand practice. Part two is for teachers looking to better understand the technique of teaching this challenging asana.
Part One: Building Your Headstand Practice
Get OUT of your head + ONTO your head with steadiness + safety. An accessible practice that will facilitate an approach to headstand with curiosity, intention + precise cueing. There is no need to have a steady headstand practice already, but if you do we’ll have something for you as well. This workshop is intended for everyone to come, participate to their comfort + ability, and learn from Madison + Jeremiah.
Part Two: Making Headstands Accessible (for teachers only)
This workshop offers a total of 4 hours of CE (including Discovering Headstands Pt.1). Jeremiah + Madison will break headstand down to its base components, speak to the anatomy of the pose, offer sequencing tips + drills that prepare the body for headstand, as well as how to teach the various progressions that build strength + confidence for headstand. Whether you feel confident in headstand yourself, or are still building your own practice, you will be left with tips to safely approach headstand as an authority. Teachers must attend both Parts 1 + 2 to receive training hours.

Jeremiah Elliott, RYT-500, E-RYT-200, YACEP
Jeremiah began yoga in 2012 during a period when he felt disconnected from himself. Yoga brought the balance he needed.

He did not stop learning there. He pursued his 300 hour training in the Fall of 2019.
