Master Class with Tom Larkin: The Head Stand - The Need to be On Our Head

  • Downtown Yoga Memphis 515 South Main Street Memphis, TN, 38103 United States (map)

The Need to Be on Our Head

As kids we bounce around, run, and without blinking an eye, balance on our head. Maybe you’re even a product of the 80’s and did those cool break-dancing moves while spinning on your head.

As adults we may not have the same boundless resolve towards such play and may have developed a fear of balancing on our head. In this master class we take a critical look at the anatomy of Salamba Sirsasana, headstand pose.

By developing and practicing simple actions, we will step into a flow that increases strength, establishes and builds a solid foundation, and rebuilds the inner confidence of our inner child to balance upside down.

Open to advanced beginners and higher.

A Note from Tom Larkin

The purpose of yoga is to enact a that in the way we think, act, or live.  But more so it is to evolve. A teacher is here to be a guide and help you navigate this evolution. To walk with you down your own path to a greater Self. 

I came to the full experience of yoga after many years in the business world creating visual art, playing sports, performing music, studying philosophy, and earning an Art degree from Belmont University. After my first teacher, John Charping, convinced me to enroll in the Southern Institute for Yoga Instructors' 1000-hour 13 month long teacher training program, I realized I had been doing many various aspects of yoga for most of my life in some form or fashion.
