Do you want to master the perfect handstand but haven’t found the right tools to get you there? Then this is the course for you! Join performer Nina Bannister for her 4 week Beginner Handstand course. With skills learnt from performance and circus training she has a lot to share.
Contrary to popular belief, there’s lots more at play than simple brute strength and determination. The key to a perfect handstand is being aware of certain aspects and key areas of the body and really fine tuning them in order to perfect your alignment, balance point and stability. We will go through certain areas of the body, step by step in order to really pin point what it is that you need to work on overall and as individuals, because every handstand body has different areas that may hold you back from achieving a solid shape.
As part of this course we will go through:
Correct handstand alignment
Repetition excersises for consistency
Endurance and stamina exercises
Specific ‘handstand muscle’ strengthening/conditioning
Specific handstand flexibility
Tips and tricks to carry on practicing at home
There’s a lot of technique and theory behind achieving the perfect handstand but I also can’t stress enough that it takes REPETITION and DETERMINATION! It will be challenging but also immensely rewarding as we over come fears, hurdles and frustrations. I’m excited to convert you into the weird and wonderful world of standing on your hands…
P.S. You WILL be required to go upside down so please don’t be alarmed when i ask you to do so. However, we will build up gradually and make sure everyone is feeling safe and happy, but please keep this in mind. Bring a bottle of water and wear close fitting, comfortable clothing i.e. Leggings and tight sports/vest top. This is partly so you dont expose yourself but also so I can clearly see you body shape and alignment. I look forward to meeting and teaching you all!
Thursday 11th January – Thursday 1st February, 7-8.30pm.
