Day 1:
Hand balancing. This includes both general and specific preparation work as well as skill work to learn, improve, and refine your ability to hold a handstand. 
No stone is left unturned. We will cover the full process of learning to perform a clean freestanding handstand and beyond. This is done in several stages: alignment, support, inversion, and balance. Also covered will be joint preparation, learning how to fall safely, and learning how to overcome both physical and psychological limitations in regards to the handstand. 

This is perfect for both beginner and advanced practitioners. Beginners will learn what to do right and wrong to not build bad habits. Advanced practitioners will learn how to make subtle refinements to increase their efficiency and mastery of their handstands as well as their ability to teach it.

Day 2 :
Day two will go over floor acrobatics and partner games. We will talk about how to approach it as an adult, learning both physical and mental preparation to the training. We will talk about the basic movements and how to constantly refine them. 

All subjects will include techniques on how to warm up and properly "tune" your body to the skills. This includes mobility, prehab, rehab, and all the like. 

Each Day will consist of a morning and afternoon session with a two hour lunch break in between. There will be approximately 6-7 hours of training and instruction per day.
