Introduction to Handstands
Have you always wanted to learn how to do a handstand?
In this workshop, we will focus on the fundamental steps necessary to hold your first handstand.
First, we will start by working on our strength and flexibility. Handstands require a strong core and upper body, as well as flexible shoulders and wrists. We will take you through muscle and joint preparation practice.
Next, we will work on proper alignment and technique. A key aspect of handstands is maintaining a straight line from head to toe, with the weight evenly distributed throughout the body. We will practise skills like kicking up against a wall and finding our balance.
Finally, we will incorporate these skills into a full handstand. Don't worry if you don't get it on the first try – handstands take time and practice to master. Our experienced instructors will be there to guide and support you every step of the way. By the end of this workshop, you will have the knowledge and skills to begin your handstand journey.
We can't wait to see you upside down!
Kettlebell training is a unique and effective way to build strength, increase mobility, and improve cardiovascular endurance. In this workshop, we will focus on four key kettlebell exercises: the deadlift, swing, press, and clean.
- Kettlebell deadlift
- Compound movement
- Targets multiple muscle groups of the legs, back, and shoulders
- Improve overall body strength and stability
- Powerful and dynamic movement
- Targets the muscles of the hips, legs, and back
- Cardiovascular exercise that improves strength and endurance
- Shoulder exercise
- Targets the muscles of the shoulders, chest, and triceps
- Improve upper body strength and muscle definition
- Complex movement that combines elements of the deadlift, swing, and press
- A full-body exercise that can help improve coordination and balance
Incorporating kettlebell training into your regular fitness routine can offer numerous benefits. It can help improve functional movement patterns, increase muscle endurance, and boost cardiovascular fitness.
