Would you like to turn the world upside down while remaining on the ground? Or perhaps you have some handstand experience but want to learn new tips and tricks? This class works with all level students on building the courage and strategies for inversions on the hands, head, and arms. We will focus on alignment, flexibility, and strength, as well as covering spotting, falling, breath, and subtle adjustment. More experienced students will be working on progressively more challenging poses and transitions. Each class includes 15-20 minutes of warm-up and stretching, followed by demonstration of handstand tips and tricks, and practice with spotters.

Come increase your bendy power, learn to prevent injuries through safe stretching, breathe, and stretch in a supportive environment.
