Handstand workshops are a great way to get introduced to the basics, learn how to train without getting injured and get real practice with other motivated people. It is a lot of fun and there is no need to be afraid or ashamed, everyone has to start one day. All exercises are of different difficulties so that they can be adjusted to everyone’s need, ability and current level. You will also be provided with individual feedback and exercises that you can do by yourself.
The flexibility workshop aims at building up your understanding as to what types of flexibility there are, how long and how often to train flexibility, which exercises to choose and how to progress safely, effectively and make it measurable. I like to treat my flexibility training just as strength training, sets and repititions and making it measurable so we see progress and stay motivated.
The One-day workshops last for approximately 2 hours and provide you with all the fundamental knowledge and technique. It starts off with the theory and visual explanations such as how to correctly use your hands, what to do with your shoulders, how to avoid pain and wrong training and how to kick up/ improve your form. Then we warm up and you get to practice yourself, step by step. We will go through several exercises to strengthen your shoulders, core and body in general that you can do anywhere without special equipment. Because learning how to balance and control a handstand is fairly subjective and partly depends on one’s body and capabilities, we will go through each participant’s form and I provide you with individual advice and exercises to work on your weaknesses. You will be provided with tools to use such as resistance bands and paralettes
