Handstands & Mobility Workshop

3. November, 2018 @ 00:00 - 17:00

If you think you´re just inflexible and there isn’t anything you can do about it, this is for you. There are many ways to gain flexibility as an adult, we will use a lot of them and go over the concepts and principles that you can actually develop over time and be more mobile. Splits, bridge, walkovers…whatever you want to do, it´s possible with the right method and some time.

– Fundamentals of training for flexibility
– Progressions towards bridge, pancake, middle and front splits
– Prehab and rehab protocols
– Learn how to stretch

This is for anyone who is interested in learning how to stand on their hands, or would like to develop their handstand, learn to press to handstand and other ways you can play on your hands. We will explore progressions to holding a freestanding handstand, give you tools you can use in your own practice and have fun playing with the freedom it can offer you to be more comfortable using your hands as feet.

– Progressions for beginners to intermediate levels to gaining a freestanding handstand and headstand
– Building into progressions for press, hspu and other more advanced elements
– Assistance exercises and programming for both mobility and handstands

About the teachers


“I’ve been fascinated by physicality since I can remember. Through spending many years training in different modalities, strength training, dance, Olympic weightlifting, sprinting, some martial arts, I learnt much about how the body works and how to change things in the body.

Through various injuries I delved deeper into rehab, physical therapy and this lead me to massage and bodywork practice. I trained in the UK in sports and clinical massage, also training in traditional Thai massage in Thailand and being exposed to many other modalities of bodywork.

I use many tools to achieve whatever result I’m looking for. Including shamanic rituals and practice within the context of therapy. I specialise in dealing with chronic pain, trauma, rehab, and generally making the body work better and feeling better in it.

I don’t believe there is only one way to do anything. I mix styles and traditions to create something that works for me and for my clients.

I want to feel good in my body, the vehicle through which I experience the world, and to facilitate this experience with others.”


Currently living in Munich and making a living out of teaching people how to engage in a joyful, fulfilling and long-lasting movement practice. One of his biggest passions is to explore the endless shapes and sizes of the physical. Doing so, he studied Sports Science in Munich, learned from the best in their field and spent hours researching using all kinds of sources of information. I look at movement in a very general way and get inspired from many disciplines – among others: Gymnastics, Martial Arts, Acrobatics, Dance, Climbing, Parkour and other athletic fields.

The focus of his teachings is to find ways to make seemingly difficult movements accessible for all sorts of practitioners. When he teaches acrobatic-like elements to adults in my seminars, he makes sure to choose methods and modalities that allow understanding of each movement.
