Handstand Workshop Barcelona with Room 21 Balancing

August 31, 2019 - September 1, 2019


Workshop Description (Hablamos español tambien!)

Beginner’s Workshop

The beginner’s workshop is aimed for people who have little, or no experience at all with handstand practice. The main focus is in establishing a safe way to practice the body’s balancing mechanisms and creating positive training patterns that lead to consistent progress. We pay a lot of attention to making sure that the participants understand the correct balance between flexibility, technique and strength training, something which is critical in the beginning stages of a balancing journey.

Other topics covered among many are:

. How to assist and train with a partner (spotting)
. Injury prevention.
. Training consistency and planning.
. Cross training with other sports / physical disciplines etc.

The Beginner’s workshop addresses a lot of the drills already introduced in the Room 21 Online Course in a more indepth manner.

There are two experienced teachers in this workshop, contributing to more individual attention and assistance.

Prerequisite: Some experience in physical activity and an injury free body

Intermediate / Advanced Workshop

The Intermediate / Advanced workshop is aimed for practitioners who are already more seriously engaged in balancing practice, or have a background in a discipline such as gymnastics or acrobatics.

The main focus is establishing a solid foundation for one-arm balancing practice. Additional work includes advanced overall body balance fine-tuning drills, head positioning drills, presses and descents and long dynamic sequences combined with static positions, all aimed at enhancing your sense of balance, control and technique.

We also address routine creation and periodization between different surfaces for more efficient practice and progress.

There are two experienced teachers in this workshop, contributing twice as much to individual attention and personal assistance.

Prerequisite: 30-second free-standing handstand
