Take your yoga practice to the next level – and boost your Instagram credentials – at a handstand workshop at Piloga Studio in Dubai next weekend.

The two-hour workshop on Saturday, August 6, will be taught by George Anthony, of Sajeeva Yoga in Koh Samui, Thailand, and is suitable for all levels.

“Handstand is a pose that epitomises balance and concentration, discipline and commitment,” Anthony says. “This is why from gymnasts, to break dancers, to yogis, it is a great pose to work on.”

Beginners are also welcome. “Everyone will learn what parts of the handstand are most important for them to be currently working on and then we will practise the many methods of developing our control and balance in handstanding with use of props, the wall, friends, or free on our own.”

As well as the handstand workshop, Anthony will also hold an acro yoga workshop on Friday, August 5, from 3pm to 5pm, and a hatha yoga workshop on Saturday, August 6, from 3pm to 5pm – both at the Business Bay studio.

The handstand workshop runs from 10am to 12pm on Saturday, August 6, and costs Dh150. Register and pay in advance to secure a place by emailing or calling 04 456 4499. For more information, visit
