    This class is aimed to those who are curious or are still struggling to press to handstand. It will be a combination of theory and practice.

    You don’t necessarily have to be able to hold a free handstand but at least 30-45 seconds against the wall.

    Not suitable for absolute beginners.

    In this 75 mins class Alex will cover:

    Breaking down the press from wrist prep

    Shoulder mobility (extension/flexion strengthening while loaded

    Hip mobility and compression

    The difference between half straddle, full straddle and the spine roll, and how to use the wall more efficiently.

    With each class Alex's goal is to guide participants through improving their body awareness, flexibility and strength to equip them for the years to come with a greater range of motion and strong resilient bodies.

    Each of Alex's classes address the important balance between strength & flexibility, to prepare the body to move better for longevity and reduce risk of injury in all types of movement practice.

    Progressions/ regressions are taught to suit intermediates/ advanced.

    Alex utilises everything a human already has to develop strength and flexibility, he will show attendees how to use the mind, breath and body in ways aligned to natural movement, no machines or weights.
    Workshops are engaging and challenging, people are pushed out of their comfort zones and are often confronted by physicals limitations caused by lifestyle choices or incorrect technique, from the office worker to weightlifters Alex's method is for everyone.
