Handstand workshops coming to Claremorris, Ireland, taught by Yuri Marmerstein on July 6-7.
There will be two separate workshops, one Saturday and one Sunday. Students are welcome to attend whichever workshop is more appropriate to their level or both for the full experience.
Saturday 10-1, Beginner Level
Saturday Afternoon will be a beginner focused workshop, so it will focus more on the process of how to learn the freestanding handstand as well as variations. This workshop may also be interesting for teachers to learn new methods on handstand instruction.
Physical preparation for handstands to keep the joints healthy and prevent injury
Exercises to build comfort and awareness with arm support and inversion
Wall handstands performed in a way that encourages independence
Learning to safely fall out of a handstand to overcome fear
Developing the sensation of what it feels like to balance your handstand
Consistent handstand entries
Progressing towards freestanding handstand
How to spot in a way to help develop balance
Ways to further develop strength, versatility, and control in the handstand
Sunday 10-1, Intermediate/Advanced Level
Sunday will be more focused on intermediate/advanced levels, so this workshop is better suited for students who are already able to hold a freestanding handstand on their own.
The class content depends on the level and desires of the group but potential topics include:
High level refinement of the basics
How to develop more control in the balance
How to add movement to the handstand
Different ways to enter and exit the handstand
One Arm handstands
Other advanced work upon request
100€ per workshop
190€ for both classes
