Want to move like a gymnast? Eager to master a handstand hold, but unsure of where to start?

Join Strongnastics Coach Jenn Lymburner on Saturday, October 13th for a 2-hour handstand foundations workshop! Perfect for athletes of all fitness levels, this workshop will introduce important mobility, strength and technique drills to get you comfortable upside down.

What will be covered?
• Foundational shapes integral to developing a perfect handstand line (hollow and arch)
• Locomotions designed to get your body warm and joints moving, and to create general mind-body
awareness that will translate to inversions
• Bridge and mobility drills to get your shoulders, spine, hips, and wrists prepared for handstands
• How to safely fall: Front rolls, cartwheels and drills to help build confidence on and off the wall
• Headstands
• Handstand balancing drills with options for all levels
