Every wondered what it’s like journeying through the Upside Down?


These days when entering a yoga room in London, there are more times than not a group of super human yogis rocking a handstand for minutes. No joke, minutes. 


This upbeat invigorating class developed by Nicki Ratcliffe and Emily Mergaert – two yogis who spend too much time on their hands – is all about the thirst/hunger for inversions in the yoga game. 


Carefully curated drills inspired from different disciplines; from gymnastics to circus, and back to yoga are broken down in this class, to give the practitioner the knowledge and courage to fly with confidence. 


There are different level classes to cater to individual aspirations. From baby crow and headstand to the quest for the press we got you covered. Open the gate to the Upside Down.


For Adventurous beginners


For those who can hold a 45 sec wall handstand
