Event description
This workshop is for beginners as well as for those of you who already can do a handstand but it's not perfect and you would like to make it (closer to) perfect! ;)

What will you learn?

Learning how to do a handstand is the process of discovering your own potential, gaining confidence and overcoming your internal barriers. Regardless of whether you never did a handstand in your life or maybe you are already well oriented in this acrobatic play, you will certainly gain a valuable experience during this 2 hour workshop. I will give you helpful tools and share my knowledge about handstands so that you will have the skills and courage needed for practicing the art of balancing on your hands.

Workshop I - FULLY BOOKED - ABC of handstands (3h) 10:00-13:00

We will work on alignment, proper work of the shoulder girdle, discovering the basic principles of acrobatics, so you can build confidence and increase your body awareness. You will learn exercises that will help you unite body and mind and create a solid foundation to stand on your hands. We will work both independently and in small groups, in an atmosphere full of support and mutual concern for safety, appropriate for all levels of practice.

Workshop II - The elements of press handstand (1,5h) 14:00-15:30

This part of the workshop will be focused on balancing positions such as standing on your forearms, or bakasana and magical "press handstand!" An art of balancing while standing on your hands is difficult, but the art of entering handstand without or with a very subtle momentum is even more challenging. During this workshop you will wake up your muscles, increase an awareness of the body and - using props such as blocks, or blankets - you will try to put the first steps in the world press handstand.

Workshop III - Balance and dynamics - 1h 15:45-16:45

Already know basics? Join me on a workshop focused solely on balancing and dynamic entries to handstands. Balance means a very subtle work of hands and it takes time and lots of awareness to understand it and feel it. Dynamics in handstand means giving pace, stopping it and then balancing - so it's a lot of things to control and that's what we will play with during this workshop.

Please note that the course will be taught in English.

Workshop I - 35 EUR
Workshop II - 20 EUR
Workshop III - 12 EUR

ALL WORKSHOPS -NOT AVAILABLE AT THE MOMENT - 55 EUR before 1st September/60 EUR after 1st September
