Intermediate Handstand Workshop Basingstoke

10th of April, 11am - 1pm, Elite Bodyworks, Basingstoke, Cranbourne House, Bessemer Rd, RG21 3NB

Price: £40

In this 2-hour workshop, you’ll learn new entries, different handstand shapes and more efficient balance strategies. Improve your handstand line and add up to 30 seconds to your handstand holds!

These workshops are for those of you who already can do handstands away from the wall and hold them for at least 10 seconds - even if only occasionally.

  • Learn how to balance with and without the use of the wall to move towards 30-60s holds. I will explain how to use wrists, shoulders and legs to get longer holds with more control

  • Learn new handstand shapes and entries. We’ll go over a couple basic and more advanced shapes and entries into a handstand. You’ll learn how to scale and implement them into your practice

  • Learn how to improve your handstand alignment. I will explain the technique for holding a straight handstand. We’ll address how to improve the mobility required for a straighter handstand line

You'll be encouraged to try new things, but everyone will be able to go at their own pace and fitness level

The workshop is hosted by Kuba Jursza:

'I am a professional movement teacher and personal trainer based in Southampton. My training began in 2006 when I jumped into a mix of disciplines such as Parkour, Calisthenics and Acrobatics. Being self-taught and learning most of the physical skills for myself allowed me to do my own research on assessing and teaching adults complex movement skills. This helped me be able to break down advanced skills and make them accessible to more people who are interested in learning something new. As much as I preach the willingness to learn new things – I believe that quality of movement is the most important.'
