Learning Shoulderstand and Some Variations (shoulderstand cycle) - cente for yoga of seattle

Inverted Poses are some of the most important poses to have in your yoga practice.

Sadly these poses are not taught or emphasized in many “modern Yoga classes.”

By inverted poses, we mean handstand (with the heels against the wall), headstand, and shoulderstand, and viiparita karne( chest puffed out with a bolster and legs up the wall).

The workshop is for those without significant health issues and in particular no major wrist injuries for the handstand segment, neck issues for the shoulderstand and  headstand segment.

The teacher is one of the Northwest’s Most Experiences Teachers. Richard Schachtel has taught for over 25 years and directs the Northwest’s Largest Yoga Teacher Training Program.


Date & Time:

  • Saturday, January 11th.
  • From 11:00am-1:15pm

Fee: $40, $30 for those who register by 12/15.

Limited Enrollment


No credit for cancellations
