to Oct 1

San Francisco

Weekend workshop in San Francisco with a one-day option included.  
We will cover all things handstand with the option for some acrobatic work as well.

Participants are able to attend both days, but in general day one will be more beginner focused while day 2 will go into some more intermediate and advanced skillsets.  

Day 1
This day will break down the basic handstand in a progressive way so that participants can leave with a deeper understanding of the skill and how to streamline their practice.  The skills are also being approached from many different perspectives so students can have an easier time finding out what works best for them on an individual level.  
All levels are welcome and there are no prerequisites.  Intermediate or advanced practitioners my also find this useful with regards to refining the basics or learning different teaching cues.  
Topics covered will be:
-Physical preparation for the skill work to help tune your body to the practice and aid in injury prevention and longevity
-"Proper" Handstand alignment, what attributes are needed to achieve it, and how to improve it
-Arm support: learning how to use the body's skeletal structure as a solid base to help understand the handstand as a resting position
-Inversion.  Introducing the concept to to adults and how to separately build comfort in being upside down before attempting the handstand.  
-How to perform the wall handstand in a way that directly progresses towards freestanding balance.  
-Methods to bail the handstand safely on any surface.  This is the number one thing that adults who want to learn handstand need to grasp.  Once you know how to bail safely, it greatly reduces risk of injury and opens up new possibilities in the practice that otherwise would have been blocked by fear or psychological barrier.  
-Progressions to cultivate the sensation of what it is to actually balance the handstand.  
-Methods and details of the handstand entry to build confidence and consistency.  
-Concepts behind spotting a freestanding handstand to help promote balance and independence.  
-How to develop a solid freestanding handstand
-Different ways to save a falling handstand to develop greater versatility, awareness, strength, and help build towards more advanced skills.  
-The difference between static balance and walking on the hands, as well as the applications of both.  

Day 2:
Day 2 will focus mainly on intermediate and advanced handstand work with the option for more dynamic skills, acrobatics, or more strength and flexibility work.  It is recommended that participants are already able to perform a consistent 30 second handstand with decent form to be able to get more out of the workshop.  

-Physical preparation for shoulders, wrist, and lower body specific to handstands.  
-Tuning and calibrating the base handstand to help address and correct asymmetries
-Advanced wall work to not only reinforce alignment, but also help build strength, endurance, and flexibility.  
-Refining of the basic handstand to make it as effortless as possible.  
-Adding complexity in the balance with basic shapes and movement patterns.
-Chaotic movement patterns while maintaining focus on balance
-Dynamic handstand work including walking and jumping
-Progressions towards the press handstand and stalder press
-Progressions towards handstand pushups, or even more advanced variations like tiger bends or 90 degree pushups
-Planche development progressions and concepts
-Progressions towards the mexican handstand or hollowback
-One arm handstand work: a lot goes into this topic, so that depends on the level of the group how far we will get

Each day consists of two 3-hour sessions and a 2-hour lunch break in between.  
Cost:
One Day only- Early bird $175, regular $200
Full Weekend- early bird $325, Regular $375

to Oct 22

New York City


Prerequisites: none
This class is geared for practitioners who are relatively new to the art of hand balance, or those who want more ideas on how to further refine their basics to lead up to more advanced skills. Advanced practitioners may also find the class useful as far as learning different techniques for teaching the basics. 
This workshop will cover physical preparation for handstand training, basic concepts and drills leading up to the handstand, how to overcome restrictions(physical and psychological) that hold people back, and finally how to train for the freestanding handstand. 
Topics covered will be:
-Physical preparation for the skill work to help tune your body to the practice and aid in injury prevention and longevity
-"Proper" Handstand alignment, what attributes are needed to achieve it, and how to improve it
-Arm support: learning how to use the body's skeletal structure as a solid base to help understand the handstand as a resting position
-Inversion. Introducing the concept to to adults and how to separately build comfort in being upside down before attempting the handstand. 
-How to perform the wall handstand in a way that directly progresses towards freestanding balance. 
-Methods to bail the handstand safely on any surface. This is the number one thing that adults who want to learn handstand need to grasp. Once you know how to bail safely, it greatly reduces risk of injury and opens up new possibilities in the practice that otherwise would have been blocked by fear or psychological barrier. 
-Progressions to cultivate the sensation of what it is to actually balance the handstand. 
-Methods and details of the handstand entry to build confidence and consistency. 
-Concepts behind spotting a freestanding handstand to help promote balance and independence. 
-How to develop a solid freestanding handstand

Workshop #2 2-5pm

Flexibility Development for Hand Balance and Acrobatics

Prerequisites: none
This is an area where many people are lacking. To not be able to express the appropriate range of motion can hinder people from learning or progressing in many acrobatic related skills. 
This class will discuss flexibility work as a general concept for broader understanding, and how to develop specific flexibility to help with the skill elements covered in the weekend workshop and beyond.
We will talk about the difference between several different expressions of flexibility: passive, resisted, active, dynamic, and ballistic, and how they can differ from but also complement each other. 

The practical portion of the class will be based upon the participants needs and interests. General positions I was planning to cover will be: pancake, pike/forward fold, bridge and general shoulder work, middle split and front split depending on time constraints. 
We will talk about the physical and mental connection to the flexibility work, and certain lead-up drills and release techniques to help get further into the positions and increase range of motion. 

Sunday

Workshop #3 9am-12pm

Intermediate/Advanced Hand Balance
Prerequisites: at least 10 seconds consistent freestanding handstand with decent form, 30 seconds recommended
This class will focus on building upon the base freestanding handstand, first on detailed refinement of the basics then following progressions of the skill tree all the way up to one arm work depending on the level of the group. 
Possible topics include:
-Physical preparation for shoulders, wrist, and lower body specific to handstands. 
-Tuning and calibrating the base handstand to help address and correct asymmetries
-Advanced wall work to not only reinforce alignment, but also help build strength, endurance, and flexibility. 
-Refining of the basic handstand to make it as effortless as possible. 
-Adding complexity in the balance with basic shapes and movement patterns.
-Chaotic movement patterns while maintaining focus on balance
-Dynamic handstand work including walking and jumping
-Progressions towards the press handstand and stalder press
-Progressions towards handstand pushups, or even more advanced variations like tiger bends or 90 degree pushups
-Planche development progressions and concepts
-Progressions towards the mexican handstand or hollowback
-One arm handstand work: a lot goes into this topic, so that depends on the level of the group how far we will get

Workshop #4 2-5pm

Floor Acrobatics
Prerequisites: none. Recommended: be able to cartwheel
This class will explore the art of floor acrobatics from the perspective of learning as an adult. We will go over the necessary physical and mental preparations to help promote a safe and injury-free practice. 
Before any skill work the class will first go over how to properly and safely jump, land, and fall on different surfaces(an invaluable ability for anyone, acrobat or not). Once the preparation work has been completed, we will explore skill development from two main perspectives: classic gymnastics/tumbling and tricking/capoeira/street acrobatics. 

The two perspectives differ greatly but can complement each other quite well once they have been developed. 

The important thing in this art is to be aware of the details. It is very easy in the beginning to build bad habits that set you back for later progressions. This is why it is important to learn solid basics from the beginning.


The idea is not to learn handstands or acrobatics over a weekend, these are skills that take years to understand. The idea behind the weekend is for the participants to be able to see the skills from a different perspective and learn concepts that they can take home and add into their own practice to help further their development. 
I see handstands and acrobatics not as something absolute, but a fun and valuable tool towards developing greater self-awareness.

-Inversion
-Dealing with fear and stress when learning the handstand
-Progressions towards balancing a freestanding handstand
-Learning to use the three layers of balance to build strength, control, and lead into more advanced skills
*Useful for all levels.  Beginners get an idea of how to approach the training, while int/adv students learn higher levels of refinement and different perspectives.  Part of the curriculum is also how to effectively teach the material.  

Sunday: Int/Adv Hand Balance, Recovery, and floor acrobatics
-Soft tissue release, mobility work, and other tricks to stay healthy and increase longevity in training

-All levels and backgrounds welcome.  This is a unique learning experience that can be applied to different perspectives.  
-The main idea behind the material is to use acrobatic movements as a tool to help develop increased body control and self-awareness.  
-The 2-day course is a way to really get into the finer details of the skills that cannot be expressed fully in a short class or workshop.

About Yuri Marmerstein

Yuri was not particularly athletic as a child. His journey into the physical arts began in college, where he drew inspiration from martial arts fields and old time strongmen. He studied physics in university, but quickly found that working in a lab or office was not suited for him. He has since decided to pursue his love of the physical arts.

 

Yuri began his training as a young adult with no guidance, and eventually worked up to performing at a professional level. His progress and teaching style was developed through endless persistence, experimentation and observation.

Yuri has trained with and learned from world class hand balancers, circus artists, gymnasts and other experts in their field to further his perspective. He has also practiced a variety of other disciplines including martial arts, dance, weightlifting, gymnastics and circus. All of this gives Yuri a very unique method to teach someone of any age or skill levels how to get upside down.Two full days of training and instruction split into two 3-hour sessions per day with a lunch break in between.

Floor Acrobatics: This class will focus on different methods of moving on and across the floor taking inspiration from gymnastics, tricking, and Capoeira.  In addition to the skill and movement work, we will also go over some of the physical and psychological preparation necessary for approaching the movements as an adult.  
Finish with cool down, flexibility work, and Q&A
