“A great handstand is not by accident. It’s from hard work, perseverance, learning, studying and most of all, love of what you are doing.” – Coach Christopher Sommer.
A fundamental gymnastics skill that builds great strength and total body control, handstands are also super fun! Many aspects come together including a strong core, flexible and strong shoulders, strong wrists, balance and control. Classes will utilize lots of body-line drills, shoulder and wrist work, partner work and of course handstands.
Everything in our body is connected to everything else. A handstand is a prime example of the connectivity of the kinetic chain, with each position, alignment, and movement requiring constant communication and neuromuscular efficiency in order to maintain that perfect balance.
