At KALAA Yoga Berlin we offer monthly workshops, open and suitable for all levels. Every month we choose a specific workshop theme or asana focus to deepen and further develop the individual yoga practice. Next to intense asana input, our workshops contain plenty of philosophical stimulation, theoretical information and creative inspiration.
On a regular base we invite international guest teachers who enrich the range of our yoga workshops.

GANESHA UPSIDE DOWN – Handstand workshop with Katharina
Sunday, 19th May, 2-5pm
Ganesha is one of the most popular deities of Hinduism. Regarded as a lucky charm he is also considered to be noble, wise, friendly and full of humour. He serves as an inspiration for overcoming obstacles and starting anew and will be our mental support for practicing handstands and inverting the body. Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha!
We will start from the basics: First we will warm up and strengthen the body and core, prepare our wrists and hands and learn about the important muscle groups for balancing the weight on our arms and hands.
Using the wall, a bolster and blocks for support we can playfully explore the many different ways of approaching this yoga posture. We will also focus on how to catch ourselves, when we are loosing the balance.
The handstand practice energizes the muscles of the arms, shouldergirdle, chest and trunk and is a great tool for strengthening the core muscles of the body. Alongside the physical effects we will also experience the mental balance, discipline, joy and self-trust that is related to the practice of armbalances.
The final sequence of the workshop will help us to ground the body and deeply stretch and relax.
Katharina is known for a dynamic teaching style and her sound knowledge of the body.She is passionate about sharing her yogic knowledge and she has got an affinity for the practice of inversions and armbalances.
The workshop is open for all level and costs 35 Euro. Please register in advance.
