Handbalance

Looking to learn the illusive handstand?

Our Handbalance classes are aimed at improving your handstand and inversion skills through building the strength, balance, flexibility and endurance needed to get you confident with being upside down.

+ What does this class involve?

Our focus is to develop a quality handstand practice

We combine methods based around Circus handbalance and Gymnastics, learned from some of the best teachers in the world.

Since every person is different in what their strengths and weaknesses are, we first build a foundation of basic skills to ensure you develop your handstand from the ground up.

Movements that we use involve solo and partner work on the floor, wall and out in the open. Though don't stress, we always make sure you are proficient and confident on the floor and wall before we begin freestanding work.

Scalability: we know that most of you haven't been on your hands since you were a kid

Thankfully, we have methods to develop these skills in adults, making this class suitable for:

  • Complete beginners and those who have never been upside down
  • Those with some handstand ability, looking to improve on their practice
  • Experienced practitioners who have a specific goal in mind, or wish to further refine their skills

If you already train CrossFit or practice Yoga, this class is perfect to help you not only improve your handstand, but also develop a handstand practice.

Wanting to take it a step further?

Once our regular attendees reach a level of competency and understanding in basic skills, we offer a personalised handbalance program for you to follow during the class. This also gives you the option to follow your program alongside other classes (such as Progressive Movement or Bamboo Effect), meaning you'll have more class times to do your handbalance work and further improve your skills.

Having your own program is the stepping stone towards reaching skills such as the 60 second free handstand, press to handstand and the one arm handstand.

+ Who is this class suitable for?

Anyone who lives inside of a body

With our progressive approach, we tailor and scale movements to suit each individual. Age is just a number; all adults are welcome, as well as kids aged 13 onwards.

Whether you already have skills in the handstand, or haven't ever been upside down, we cater for both ends of the spectrum to make sure that you are challenged with appropriate movements for your level.

If this is the first time for you, we make sure to ease you into our curriculum and allow you to go at your own pace.
