A group class to learn and develop handstands. Come train handstands with other like minded folk!
This class is purpose designed for those seeking to unlock and improve that elusive free-standing handstand as well as explore movements which require a handstand.
This class is creative in its approach and may seek to explore many different inversion movements.
It might take a little while, but with some investment anyone can unlock a free standing hand stand.
Each class is 60 minutes in duration and lead by an instructor.
You will learn flows and movement patterns which will help you unlock and improve your ability to mount into a handstand and improve your holds.
You will also learn how to hold a variety of different shapes.
During training, you will be working with the wall as well as producing free standing handstands under the watchful eye of our trainer. You will learn to assist (and be assisted) others train their handstands and develop good technique. Advanced members will practice and explore more advanced movements such as LSITs to Handstands, Paralletes, Balancing on Blocks, Press to Handstands and more.
The following are requirements to participate in this class.
You should be able to maintain a Chest to Wall Handstand for at least 30s (not including the time it takes to hand walk into position). You should also be able to safely dismount from the wall assisted hand-stand safely.
You should be able to be inverted upside down for extended periods as well as have healthy wrists and shoulders.
A good test is if you are able to hold a head stand securely.
Before commencing this class you should seek medical advice if handstand training is suitable for you.
You will eventually! However you can actually start the development of your handstand outside this class.
You can start immediately by learning how to do a headstand. Come talk to our coaches to learn.
Yoga & stretch classes will help build shoulder mobility and strength to support handstands.
