The Approach: Path to Inversion with Kirra Michel – Handstand Yoga Peloton Training Program is available

This morning, Peloton launched their newest training program. This is the second program as part of “The Approach”, which is a multi-part yoga training series. The first in the program was Power Restorative Yoga with Ross Rayburn.

The newest program is called “Path to Inversion”, and is a two week program led by Kirra Michel. In it, Kirra helps guide members to working their way towards inversions – whether that ends up being a handstand, headstand, forearm stand, or just making progress.

In a recent Q&A, Kirra did caution members that if you’ve never done an inversion before, you shouldn’t expect to be able to do one by the end of the two weeks. Instead, this would give the foundation and techniques to work on, so you can repeat classes and make progress over time.

When announcing the program, Kirra said this:

Take classes 1-12 and then come back to any class along the way that was a struggle for you. The idea is to do these classes multiple times!!! As many as you need to!!! Which will more than likely, be a handful of times. So don’t get disheartened if you don’t have a handstand by the end of the two weeks. Set your expectations accordingly and stay determined! 💪🏼


Now, keep in mind, this isn’t an easy skill to attain. Two weeks will be a STRETCH unless you’ve already been working on Handstands for a while. I’d like you to think of this more as foundations. A place to return back to to train the body to be ready to go upside down. Whether that be for headstand, a forearm, or a handstand. This work can help and be applied to all of these inversions.

Kirra also described the program a little more during the Peloton Homecoming panel, which we covered here.
