Dan fuses knowledge from his 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 the poses.
Dan is a fun and creative teacher with a wealth of knowledge – so don’t let his youthful looks deceive. If you want to learn how to arm balance + handbalance safely, with stability and ease, and also learn how to teach the same to your students, this training is for you !
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 – as a guideline, ideally students should have the strength and confidence to kick up to the wall in handstand.
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.
