What you will do
What are the barriers to achieving a headstand practice? Primarily…fear! Of course, we need to strengthen our bodies, engage our core and use our breath, but interestingly more often than not, it is not these elements that stand in the way of getting up in the air. It is your trickster mind telling you it is just too dangerous.
In this workshop, Louise will work with students to overcome this fear. You will warm up the body through a steady yoga practice, then Louise will demonstrate, provide integral guidance and give you techniques to help you work towards, or perhaps even achieve, a headstand. There will be partner work and lots of practising so be ready to get sweaty upside down!
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
This is a Flexitime class, which means the teacher can run this class around your schedule.

About your host, Loup Yoga
Loup Yoga, run by Louise, aims to support and encourage people to live healthily, happily and humanely. It does this through yoga, which includes the physical practice, breath work, meditation and mindful decision-making.
Many figures have influenced Loup Yoga's ideology and philosophy, cumulating in this venture. It draws on the wisdom of the yoga sutras of Patanjali, the anthropological studies of Yuval Noah Harari and Michael Pollan's insight into where nature and culture intersect. The most important aspect is to translate the wisdom and guidance available to us into practical action for tangible results.
After finishing a Master's Degree at Edinburgh University, Louise started working for the Human Rights Commission in London, before studying Arabic in Oman to compliment her job as Editor and Research Developer. On returning to the UK, Louise decided to re-focus on education. Having previously worked in special needs schools, Louise has a passion for developing the education environment to make it accessible for all. Louise worked at KIDS charity in London, developing Education, Health and Care Plans for disabled children to ensure they were receiving quality education to foster development.
Inspired by her experiences at KIDS, Louise became fascinated by education in the context of International Development, being passionate about playing her part towards the Sustainable Development Goals. Subsequently, Louise moved to Ghana with International Service to run a project fighting against disability discrimination, with a focus on sustainable inclusivity of the disabled community within education and society. Louise began practising yoga in 2015, and found it to be a transformative practice.
Despite remaining passionate about humanitarian work, Louise felt compelled to complete a 200 hour Ashtanga Vinyasa Teacher Training course with All Yoga in Indonesia, and is now working full time to spread the powerful and transformative effects of Yoga.
Louise will answer all questions and work with each individual to overcome their specific concerns/barriers.
