HANDSTANDS FOR BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED1 July 2019
HANDSTANDS WORKSHOP WITH JUSTIN GARCIA
SATURDAY, 10 AUGUST, 3:00PM – 6:00PM
London Bridge Studio
LEARNING THE ART OF THE HANDSTAND
Want to bring your existing handstands up to new levels, or perhaps you’re a total newcomer dreaming of doing your very first handstand?
We are pleased to introduce a very special workshop, Handstands, Beginners to Advanced, with guest teacher Justin Garcia.
Whatever your current level of ability may be, BYL’s first ever handstand workshop is an unmissable one!
Whether you are a total beginner who wants help in getting into your first handstand, or can already perform a basic handstand and want to improve on it, this is definitely a great workshop for you to attend!
Is this particular workshop suitable for my level?
Handstands can seem unreachable for those who’ve never tried one, but with simple techniques and some basic dedication and confidence, learning handstands is well within reach for many who wouldn’t have thought it attainable!
While some of our attendees to this workshop may already have experience with handstands, many BYL yogis are new to them. Accordingly, there are no strict prerequisites for this workshop. While some attendees may have some familiarity with how to kick up against a wall, being able to do so is by no means a strict requirement.
The idea is to get as many people as we can to enjoy the liberating feeling of balancing on your hands, so no matter what your ability is you will take valuable lessons away from this workshop. All you need is a willingness work hard and be open to learning techniques that you can use to become a confident handstander!
The workshop will start with a warmup and mobility work to prep for the handstands to come, so you’ll learn fun and highly effective warm ups in preparation for your handstands.
Justin will make an initial assessment of the room, organising people into groups based on level of ability. Whether you’re a complete beginner who wants to get comfortable with your first steps, or are already able to perform a handstand and want to begin pushing your ability to get to more advanced levels, there will be a group that is set for you.
This workshop will cover exercises that improve your balance, alignment and strength when in handstands, all of which will help to build confidence and a better quality of alignment in your handstand.
From different shape transitions to alignment and strengthening techniques, everyone will find a challenge and significant potential for improvement through this workshop.
Set a Goal Based on Your Current Level
Importantly, each level will have separate, specific goals to help further pursue their evolution, which means that every attendee, no matter what their current handstand ability, will come away with a practical lesson in how to get to the next level.
Justin will help you find exercises and techniques that match where you currently happen to be and will then support you to help take your handstand to the next level. Due to Justin’s structured method of teaching to small groups separated by level, spaces at the workshop will be strictly limited.
Workshop is for all levels, from beginners to more experienced handstanders.
