I have dedicated the last 5 years to handbalancing, starting in my 30's as a complete beginner!!
Using these experiences I have created a BEGINNER FRIENDLY program to help you on the quickest and safest route to achieving a handstand.
These methods have been used for the past 5 years on 100's of different people, from office workers, fitness enthusiasts, to complete beginners.
I have helped people in their 30's, 40's and 50's go from being afraid to kick up against a wall, to now holding 10-30+ seconds freestanding handstands.
Handstands changed my life for the better and I want to show you how working towards a skill can change yours too.
I am super passionate about educating people on how to train efficiently and effectively.

PREHAB FOR PERFORMANCE
We don't brush our teeth everyday to one day not have to brush our teeth... In order to have a healthy functional body, we need to move our joints through their available ranges of motion EVERYDAY
Stretching is a skill, and if we have never done it before, then we need to be taught how to approach it.
in these mobility workshops, we specifically address not only how to stretch, but what would you should be feeling in a stretch, how to overcome your stretch reflex to improve your range of motion, and how to prioritise and choose the most efficient exercises for you!
Prehab for Performance is a methodology on how we should prepare ourself for our everyday activities.
This will differ from person to person, so whether you are a seasoned athlete, a desk worker, or someone wanting to just be able to play with your kids without fear of injury then this is the course for YOU.
If we strengthen our body to do what it is designed to do, then we create a body capable for the demands we put on it.

What some past hosts have said
"Your expertise in leading a room full of individuals with mixed experience and abilities is simply fantastic.
All good coaches can get across principles and methods easily, but the best one's have a person-centred approach, an ability to connect and fill a void based on that persons need.
You've done that and more for our members and coaches with the mobility workshops you've taught here.
I hope everyone gets to experience your teaching style which strongly aligns with what we believe is important. ❤"

My niece was there so I was able to ask her and she was really impressed with how you managed the different abilities in the room.
