They cultivate smiles. You can do them anywhere. They'll make you a better person.
Can I really learn how to do a handstand?
Of course! All it takes is the right level of strength, mobility, and motor control. I will work with you at the level that you are at to develop these fundamental movement skills.
How long will it take to get my free-standing handstand?
Depending on your current level, it will likely take months of consistent, targeted practice. If you do you the work, you'll quickly begin to see the results.
How much should I practice on my own?
You can see significant progress in just 10 minutes of practice a day, two to four times a week.
Are there any prerequisites to learning a handstand?
Well, yes - but probably not at many as you might think. You need some level of wrist and shoulder mobility, along with a bit of upper body strength. Locomotion is a good place to start if you've never done a cartwheel or kicked up to a wall. If you are concerned about limitations in your movement, I am happy to discuss over email.
How will handstands make me a better person?
Learning this skill requires discipline, and consistent, intentional practice. It teaches patience, and to trust the process. The intangible results of handstand training will permeate into other areas of your life. I promise.
