Handstand workshop With Marta Witecka (Pol)
Learning how to do a handstand is the process of discovering your own potential, gaining confidence and overcoming your internal barriers.
Regardless of whether this is your first encounter with standing on your hands or maybe you are already well oriented in this acrobatic play, you will certainly gain a valuable experience during this 2 hour workshop. Get ready to get helpful tools and knowledge so that you get the skills and courage needed for practicing the art of balancing on your hands.
ABC of handstands (2h) 3-5pm Saturday 19th December
We will work on alignment, proper work of the shoulder girdle, discovering the basic principles of acrobatics, so you can build confidence and increase your body awareness. You will learn exercises that will help you unite body and mind and create a solid foundation to stand on your hands. We will work both independently and in small groups, in an atmosphere full of support and mutual concern for safety, appropriate for all levels of practice.
The elements of press handstand (1,5h) 5:30-7pm Saturday 19th December
This part of the workshop will be focused on balancing positions such as standing on your forearms, or bakasana and magical "press handstand!" An art of balancing while standing on your hands is difficult, but the art of entering handstand without or with a very subtle momentum is even more challenging. During this workshop you will wake up your muscles, increase an awareness of the body and - using props such as blocks, or blankets - you will try to put the first steps in the world press handstand.
