Full Description

Journey to Handstand | Thursday 2nd June – Thursday 23rd June 8pm – 9.15pm with Michael Lattin-Rawstrone

If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to do a handstand but unsure of where to really start, or maybe you can do one but can’t hold it for long, then this course is for you. It will teach you the foundations to get started or improve your handstand and other hand balances by focusing on the basics of strength and technique.

We will be focused on the essential skills and strengths needed for a straight line handstand, the benefits of which include opening up of the shoulders, a stronger and tighter core along with better protection of your back. However this is more than just handstands, this course is about gaining better control of your body, learning skills to transfer to everything else.

What to expect: A thorough warm up of wrists and shoulders as they will be taking the brunt of our training! Exercises to increase body awareness (when upside down), preparation exercises, tutorials on correct positioning, breathing and working towards the 4 fundamental progressions to getting a free-standing handstand.

Each week Michael will be there to check form and make sure you are all progressing in the right way for your body. There will also be specific exercises to do at home during the time between to help you progress and achieve your goal of hand-standing.

Only 10 places available so you can be sure of plenty of support.
