This workshop will cover the following topics:

  • handstand entries
  • basic leg movements such as straddle, pike, stag and front splits.
  • Bakasana to handstand etc
  • body position refinement
  • negative rep transitions
  • the toe to wrist tap
  • jumping into a handstand
  • Intro to the press handstand, tuck, straddle, pike and firefly press.

These topics break down the handstand for those who can already hold a 5-10 second free stand away from the wall. Exercises and progressions will be provided for all topics, all of which will be practiced during the workshop with the intention that individuals understand the concepts sufficiently to be able to train on their own following this workshop.
