Prerequisites 30-second handstand against the wall
Basics and drills are cool but I do that every day. Now that I can balance away from the wall, I feel this itch. A burning desire to PLAY!
A Balanced Handstand
By Aryn S.
Sure, you can hold your handstand against a wall. But does God smite your balance each time you get away from the wall? It’s not you, obviously. It was the goddamn surface. Of course. Not the lack of technique, strength, or prayers...
By Emily Lesinski, DPT
No quirky lines here. Handstands are HARD. Hard to learn, hard to do, and hard on our bodies. We could all use some more pre/after care. Why shouldn’t you learn these techniques from the best? Emily Lesinski is a high caliber acrobat (and a Doctor of Physical Therapy, too). There’s no better person to have this conversation with than the one who understands exactly what we do from a first person perspective and one with years of experience healing acrobats.
