We’ve all attempted to stand on our hands at some point in our life, but have you ever thought about the mechanics of what makes such a movement possible? In this workshop I will introduce you to handstands through the eyes of a hand-balancer. Our focus is to align the spine and have proper muscle engagement as a foundation which allows us to create new shapes and transitions.
