Learning handstand technique involves a multifunctional training method that improves your body strength, coordination and balance. This class will teach you to take control over your limbs, core and back in order to achieve supreme body awareness. Inverted postures such as handstands which involve working against gravity challenge you to improve your self-confidence and disciple which will set you on the path to achieving a perfect handstand. Muscle development is another key advantage of handstand training, particularly improvements in upper body strength and shoulder stability which is helpful for other sporting and acrobatic disciplines. A perfect handstand doesn’t come over night, hand and wrist strength, conditioning and body line drills to strengthen the handstand ‘line’ will all be included in the class. This is a great workout for both Male and Females and you can walk away with a new skill!
