Playing Handstands with Robbie O'Driscoll

The handstand is a fantastic tool for gaining and maintaining strength and mobility of the upper body. The development of this skill is a long term project, and requires an attitude of playfulness to maintain an enjoyable and effective process.

This workshop covers the approach I use technically to teach handstand practice:

  • Mobilising and strengthening exercises and routines, including their progressions for the wrists and shoulders;

  • Practicing the kick up

  • Alignment drills;

  • Using the wall;

  • Balance development tools;

  • Post-practice decompression and excess tension re-balance.

And covers the roles of intention, attention, and attitude during practice.
