Headstand Workshop with Iris Tan, Jun 2
Saturday, June 2, 2018
1pm - 3pm
Join Iris to explore the fundamentals of headstand in this 2-hour workshop. Also known as the King of Asana, sirsasana (headstand) when done correctly provides many physical and mental benefits.
After warming up with a flow sequence, the workshop takes you through the techniques of getting into a headstand and teaches you the safe and correct way to enter the asana. Practitioners already familiar with headstand practice will be given options to work through transitions into headstands.
Open to practitioners of all levels. However, it is not advised for those with high blood pressure, neck problems or those recovering from recent eye or other surgeries.
Free for Yoga Journeyers. Email to sign up.
ABOUT IRIS TAN
Iris is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance. Previously a cheerleader and a dancer, she finds it a challenge to stay still, and is constantly on the lookout for new challenges, as she enjoys the adrenaline rush that comes with being out of the comfort zone.
Iris started her journey with hot yoga in 2010, which helped to rehabilitate her body as well as provide her with a greater sense of peace and purpose. In 2014, she took her 200 hours Teacher Training in Sydney with Briohny and Dice (affectionately known as Bryce) and in 2015, after a falling out within the family business, she decided to combine her love for yoga and the passion of sharing, officially starting her journey as a yoga teacher.
Iris believes that yoga is about the union between the physical practice and the breath, and that the breath is our best teacher — it tells us when to go deeper and when to rest. Her classes are fun and mostly light hearted. She believes in establishing strong foundations through proper breathing techniques and asanas. When she is not on the mat, Iris works in the facilities management sector, and she also enjoys putting together flowers as a hobby.
