The very talented Dan Morgan is returning to Oceanflow for his 3rd year running! If you’re interested in taking your practice up to the next level and introducing headstanding and handstanding techniques, Dan is the man to see!
There will be a dedicated Headstand workshop which is suitable for inversion beginners as well as those of you looking for confidence & better alignment upside down.
Two Handstand workshops over the same day are on Sunday to either take both together or choose whether you’d prefer the beginner-friendly one to get you used to using your hands as feet or the later one which will smooth out clunky transitions in your vinyasa and introduce some flight!
Also, for the first year, Dan is showcasing his Yoga for Surfers workshop with us and where better than here with our views over Fistral! This workshop is suitable for Yogis getting into Surfing as well as Surfers looking to bring yoga into their routine to complement the physical affects of surfing.

Fear can sometimes get the better of us, especially when faced by a challenging posture such as Handstand. This workshops aims to break down this seemingly challenging posture, into manageable fear-free steps.
This workshop will bring you a deeper understanding of the relevant principles of a handstand, how to approach the practice safely, and give you the tools to approach it in your own time during and after the workshop. With a focus on the five key focus points of an inversion, and through practical experience of various skills and drills, this workshop will help you to obtain a solid foundation from which to build your inversions practice – leading to a more solid and consistent Inversion practice, and helping you to eventually find balance upside down with ease.
4. Float and Flow with Dan Morgan: Handstands & Transitions
Sunday 30th June
1.30-4.30pm BOOK HERE
When we start attempting to get a little more dynamic in our yoga practice, certain transitions between postures can feel clumsy, clunky, heavy or basically impossible – and after a while this can become a little frustrating. However, with an intelligent approach to develop the necessary strength and mobility, these tricky transitions will begin to feel easy in no time!
This workshop will explore various ways that we can begin to develop our ability to move with more control, grace and ease – breaking down transitions or movements such as; being able to gracefully step and set our foot between our hands, to floating or jumping forward and back during our vinyasa, to floating into and out of crow, plank and side plank transitions, incorporating playful scissor kicks and handstands into your practice, and much more!
Please don’t feel put off by some of the activities mentioned, this workshop will be adapted based on the group of the day – looking at the postures or movements that feel most relevant to the group – so come along and have some fun with us as we delve into this workshop experience!
