The beginners class will revolve around getting the perfect alignment and make you feel comfortable using the wall, detaching yourself slowly from the wall, becoming familiar with different shapes like the tuck, straddle and full handstand. We will work individually and occasionally with a partner. This will be a three hour ride per day into building a friendship with the upside down world.

This class will revolve around strengthening your focus in the freestanding handstand, perfecting your alignment, working and creating new and different shapes and working towards and with the one arm handstand. We will get more familiar with tucks, straddles, full handstands and even flags. This course will guide through every step in order to get to the next level.

I started training handstands when I was only 6 years old, so this is something that feels natural to me. My performance career started in 2001 and since then I have been touring with different shows like «Varekai» and «Joya» by «Cirque du Soleil», all over the world. During the past 5 years I’ve had years of discovering different teaching methods and realised that we, the humans, make the handstand much more difficult than it actually is. So now my purpose has become to make the upside down world as comfortable and light as it possibly can be.
