Blogs have quotes right? The serious ones… ‘Sometimes it’s absolutely necessary to look at the world upside down in order to see things right.’ Or ‘When life turns you upside down, simply just adjust your view to a different perspective, or some slightly silly(er) ones… ‘MOM is WOW turned upside down’ or one I’m quite familiar with ‘turn that frown upside down’ – not that I don’t smile because I definitely do, some would say a resting female dog face is more accurate.
Once somebody said to me that ‘you never come down from a hand stand unhappy because being upside down makes you happy’. I agree, being an avid hand stander myself, I don’t recall a time when a handstand made me unhappy, apart from the fact I fail to hold one for longer than a few seconds but anyway… There’s a reason for this euphoric feeling and it’s not because it’s simply unusual and exciting to be upside down seeing things from a different perspective, but because the increased blood flow to your brain has both an energising and calming effect. And not to mention the wonders it can do for our backs. Everything on this planet fights a constant battle with gravity, which is often lost because let’s face it gravity is a BEAST. Inverting, whether it be a handstand, headstand, or hanging off the end of your bed allows the spine to decompress and the spinal fluid to circulate which elongates the spine improving the health and flexibility of the vertebral column. Interesting right? Now imagine allowing yourself to hang upside down but not have to put in the gruelling effort of balancing on your head, hands, or worry about falling asleep whilst draped off of your comfy bed… You don’t have to imagine, at The Studio we have exactly that! And it’s called Trapeze Yoga!
The fabulous Nina Jones is teaching Trapeze yoga every Saturday until the 13th July! The first one got off to a flying start with double numbers turning up to ready, steady, fly! You’re probably wondering why this blog bangs on about being upside down so much but that’s all you guys really talked about, commenting on how you were reluctant to go upside down at first but after that there was no stopping you. And another staying behind after class to practice the sequence into a version of ‘Inverted Star’ mainly to get that golden insta pic, but hey nobody is judging. However, it’s not all just fun and games, ok it mostly is… others expressed how their first trapeze class delivered the perfect mixture of things from a fabulous core and upper body workout with pain lingering in days to follow, I think they mean the good pain though, we promise… to a soothing swinging relaxation to finish.
So, if we’ve learnt anything in the last minute, the key to winning the fight against gravity and a happier life is to live it upside down.
We had a fantastic class on Sunday lead by Natalia. Rachel Lugo and Christine McGuinness from the Real Houseweives of Cheshire and Jess Cunningham from the Apprentice, joined us for a 90 minute Yin Yang fusion class.
Take a look at what the MEN wrote about the upcoming series of The Real Housewives of Cheshire and how much they love coming to hot yoga at The Studio
The Studio had such a great day at the James Milner Foundation event at the end of last month! We had an entire afternoon of back to back fitness classes, including Insanity, body attack, body combat, and a yoga class to top it off. Phew. Thank god this was combined by DELICIOUS healthy cocktail drinks provided by Dovetail drink (You need to check these guys out!). The perfect pick me up. Not to mention the amazing goody-bags from our partners: I SAW IT FIRST, Cowherd’s juicer, The Alchemist, James Milner Foundation and Rosso restaurant. We were very spoilt! Totally worth the work-out.
This amazing day was all in aid of a brilliant cause – The James Milner Foundation. This incredible charity raises money to promote healthy recreation for the benefit of young people in the United Kingdom by the development, improvement and provision of opportunities in sports such as football, rugby, cricket…and of course, yoga!
Most importantly none of this would have been possible without the awesome contribution from all the fantastic, powerful and beautiful ladies involved. We want to say a massive thank you for all coming along and making the day possible!
As many of you know, our yoga studio is a space that holds a variety of hot yoga and fitness classes. But our vision is to utilize the studio for events exactly like this one! The studio is a space where we can open up the doors, turn the heat up and get the music blaring! The Studio are here to create an environment where our community can get together, learn something new, and most of all have fun!
