Essential Mobility/Flexibility for Handstands
Sunday 3 March 2024, 8:30a.m. Any and All Welcome.
For this workshop in our handstand series, we're exploring some sophisticated techniques directly targeted at improved:
- Joint Health
Specifically, we will be focused on:
- Alignment and bodyline drills
- Spine mobility and back strength
- Shoulder flexion and strength
- Pike, middle split flexibility and your active compression
We will leverage some familiar techniques (PAILs/RAILs/C.A.R.S.) but also some PNF and EQIs (We will spell those out on the board!)
If you are experiencing tightness (pike, overhead pressing/movements), discomfort or even some pain around the knee, hips, low back, shoulders or arms, then this workshop will provide immediate benefit. All levels welcome as full guidance on performing the movements will be provided throughout. Please arrive a few mins early as we will start on time given the curriculum we are seeking to deliver
Over the past 2 years, interest in, and the number of practitioners doing handstand has really taken off globally. For those unaware, handstand practice builds strength, endurance, body awareness and control, balance, coordination and more.
