F.A.Q.

Will I need any equipment or props?

I suggest that you have the following in order to make the most out of this workshop. Only the first two are absolutely essential.

  • A PC or phone with a camera, microphone and internet connection
  • A space big enough to safely do handstands, including a wall
  • A stick or broom
  • A yoga mat/space to stretch on
  • A cushion for flexibility (if you know your hamstrings are stiffer) 
  • Pen/paper if you want to write things down
I can already do a freestanding handstand, but it’s inconsistent, will I benefit from this workshop?
Certainly! There is always something to improve upon, especially when revisiting the basics. We will also cover handstand alignment and how to make your practice more effective.
I have no gymnastics or athletic background, can I still participate?
Of course, this beginner handstand workshop is for all fitness levels, no experience needed! Even if you have never attempted a handstand or any other handbalance before, you will be able to take part.
I have a pre-existing injury, is it still safe to participate?
Please make sure you are cleared by your doctor before participating in this physical activity.
When will I receive my link?

You will receive a zoom link via email after booking. You will receive reminders both 24-hours and 1-hour before the workshop commences.

Please be ready to go as we will start ON TIME.
