Handstands

Winter Session: Wednesdays, Feb 5-March 18

Times:
7:00pm- 8:15pm
Location:
The Cirque Lab;
Cost:
$15 drop-in, by 4 or more classes at once and the cost is $12 per class.
Ages:
adult
Instructor:
PJ Perry, MS, gingerly.aerial@gmail.com
This class is for almost everyone. Focus of the classes is geared toward tools and techniques to demystify balance and gain skill-specific strength. For those who've always wanted to balance on their hands and just kick up to fall down, you can find control, coordination, and baby steps so that handstand no longer seems like a magical unicorn in a hidden forest. For those already finding some success in a free-standing hand balance, you will get tools to improve alignment for shoulder longevity, work on presses, and drill towards one arm.
PJ has an extensive background in kinesiology, movement education, and injury prevention. She relishes the opportunity to incorporate that background to make the class a holistic experience. PJ will often have guest instructors come in to offer a varied perspective on this challenging skill.
PREREQUISITE: Just one. Must be able to kick up to a wall unassisted and stay there for 10 seconds.
NOTE ON PAYMENT: guest instructors may charge their own rate and if so, discounted rates will not apply.
