As any high level gymnast or hand-balancer will tell you, performing a straight-body handstand requires hard-work, dedication, and a lot of patience. How do you progress to get that straight-body line? The handstand class will incorporate alignment drills that will challenge even the strongest athletes.

Shoulder Mobility

People have the capability to lift their arms overhead - shoulder flexion. Unfortunately with time, this range of motion is lost due to lack of use - how often do you lift your arms overhead in daily life? Full shoulder flexion is key to holding the handstand position - without the full bodyweight collapsing into the shoulder joint.

Balancing

We teach and train handstands in true gymnastics fashion, achieving balance by keeping the shoulders open, core tight, and body aligned in one straight line. As such, you will need to consistently work on your wrists, elbows, and shoulders to make sure that they have both mobility and stability to hold this position.
