Headstand Foundations Workshop with Melissa Lau
Have you always wanted to try headstand but are afraid of going upside down on your own? Have you been doing headstand against the wall but are scared to do it without support? Then this workshop is for you!
Being the king of asanas, headstand (sirsasana) is a great pose to rejuvenate the whole body by enhancing the circulation of blood and fluids. It also strengthens core and upper body muscles.
