Handstand • Washington trapeze
In this workshop we focus on finding one's own balance point. We will develop true sense of our core and how its location, stability and strength to our arms and hips. You will gain tools, technique, alignment and drills that will lead you to mastery of your own body when doing handstands or headstand.
We will work on a wide range of exercises designed to progress flexibility, strength, endurance, alignment and balance both on the floor and on the trapeze.
As a group we will create a safe atmosphere that will be appropriate and for all levels. You will learn to correct yourself and spot others. Together we will learn exercises that unify body create a solid foundation for a lifetime of standing on your hands.
Last but not the least, the most important thing in this workshop is to have fun! As the Finnish saying goes: 'Ilon kautta!' (translation: Through joy!')'
