Whether you are an absolute beginner or can already free-stand, this course will provide you with a wide array of efficient exercises and progressions to take home to your own practice, with a view to assessing and troubleshooting recurrent issues as well as overcoming plateauing. You will avail of individual hands-on coaching to help you find “your” line. Banana-shaming prohibited. Repeaters will be given variations and upgrades to ensure progression.

Over 5 weeks, you will:

- develop core and upper body strength and flexibility,

- learn how to isolate body parts to reach optimal alignment and re-balance,

- learn how to prepare and look after your joints and muscles in efficient warm-ups and cool-downs.

BEGINNERS: Requisite: none. Beginners will learn the structure of the handstand and develop the tools and long-term strategies to train efficiently and safely to their own levels, with particular attention to the concepts of body tension and joint preparation. Students will progressively develop strength and flexibility while getting used to getting inverted, using the wall and a spotter. They will learn to kick up and bail in a controlled and safe way. Lastly, they will learn to correct themselves as well as spot others and give specific and efficient cues to improve their line.

IMPROVERS will focus on consistency and approach the handstand as a whole movement, from kicking up to free-standing. Students will work on specific energy-saving exercises to raise their “successful entries” rate. They will improve their shoulder line and learn body isolations techniques to re-balance efficiently and transition from shape to shape, with the help of spotters and/or the wall. Lastly, students will learn drills and long-term strategies to improve their line and endurance.
