Obsession for Inversions with Rich Logan
GET YOUR PROSPECTIVE TURNED UPSIDE DOWN!
Come join us for a 3 hour intensive designed to get you upside down safely. Inversions provide us a multitude of benefits but can be harmful if our alignment is compromised.
Come join Rich Logan for an afternoon of exploring your body breath and mind from a different point of view.
We will have some brief lecture and then learn to safely explore “The Inward Postures” using props and techniques that will give you more time to explore the effects these poses create for us.
We will warm up with alignment based asana and sun salutes to understand our unique tensions and habits in the Body and Mind, with an intention to balance those re-actions, as they tend to worsen when upside down. Then we will bring that new awareness into a world that seems completely upside down.

Rich has an eclectic teaching style focusing on the seeming basics to allow for a deeper practice by sitting in some poses for extended periods and moving through other postures smoothly with deliberation attention on placing ourselves in the pose as opposed to habitual patterns and gravity running the show. A mindful practice is focused on, bringing us to the edge of ‘experience’ to ‘witness’ the moment unfold and realize it is us who is the unfolding.
