Adam Whiting | From Fight to Flight: Unlocking the Handstand

Let’s strip it down and focus our attention solely on standing on our hands. In this 3-hour workshop we will investigate a multitude of aspects that allow us to hold a safe and stable handstand.

The feet, the hips, the core, the shoulder girdle, the wrists and hands all play an important role in getting and staying upside down. We’ll open, strengthen and integrate through an intelligent flow of foundational poses to build the strength and body awareness needed to fly. We’ll then move towards wall-work, partner work, and ultimately to solo flight.

All levels are welcome and variations and modifications will be given to beginners and seasoned handstanders alike.
