Build courage and find inner bliss through inversions and backbends

July 8 – 10, 2022

Saturday July 9: 2 – 4:30 pm

Sunday July 10: 2 – 4:30 pm

In-person at Adeline Yoga in Berkeley


Join Heather for very special 3-Day  immersion

Our program will focus on building courage and finding inner bliss through back extensions and inversions.

Each session we will include energizing active practices coupled with supported poses to nurture the body.  The purpose?  To promote happiness! We will enjoy the positive energy of being together and seeing our practice evolve over the three days.

This is an opportunity to get help hands-on help with your inversions such as headstand and shoulderstand variations.  We will work step by step with the back extensions, making them accessible and attainable.

“New practitioners are usually apprehensive about attempting inversions and backward arching asanas.  Avoiding these asanas though only deprives us of their myriad benefits. We need to rid our minds of fear and summon the courage to attempt inversions. Ironically, this is the genre of asanas that builds courage and fortitude. We must therefore find a way of incorporating these postures into our practice until the initial fear is reduced.”

-BKS Iyengar Aarogya Yoga Chapter 24.

You can expect plenty of personalized attention and hands-on adjustments.

Our time together is progressive – signing up for the entire Immersion is important.


What students think of these Immersions:

“For me, these Immersions are all about filling in elements that we miss in our Zoom practices. I experience increased concentration and focus; energy feedback and exchange with my peers; and knowing that my teacher can effectively see me and offer more personal, structured instruction for improved posture and alignment.  The weekend was just what I needed and I will sign up for any of these in the future. The format, timing, progression of posture over three days worked great for me.” – Alanna S.

“I discovered Adeline Yoga on zoom.  As a new student, and probably the least experienced practitioner in the class, it was all upside for me. I learned a lot!  I really enjoyed the group and energy – and the chanting. For me right now, I know I will make progress faster with occasional in-person classes.  Adeline Yoga offers great teaching and a great community.  The studio brings a lot of light to many people. ” – Jeff J.
