Upper Body Strength & Handstand Course - Kathryn Bruni-Young

Upper Body Strength & Handstand Course

I’ve put together this online course to help you develop the necessary skills, strength and mobility needed for a strong and stable upper body. Why focus on handstand? Handstands require more than just brute strength, they challenge our body awareness, proprioception, mobility and fine motor skills. Our bodies are designed to carry weight over head, working towards a handstand helps us regain functional movement, and makes daily life just a bit more smooth.

Each week we focus on one major part of the body, each video shows different strength and mobility exercises to help prep the upper body for these challenging poses. This course is not based on fancy skills, rather we focus on progressive strength movements that are accessible for different body types.

Areas of the body include a detailed look at wrists and forearms, shoulder strength and alignment, basics of core work and finally handstand skill development. Its all about building a strong foundation and preparing the body safely and intelligently.

What’s included:

  • Four professionally shot videos that outline exercises and movements
  • Four extensive PDF’s which give students further details on the exercises, modifications and practice templates
  • Access to a private Facebook group to share our experiences
  • Extra links and clips that have been curated by Kathryn to add to the educational experience
  • Two audio recordings of Kathryn’s live workshops to inspire and inform

Who is this coursed designed for?

  • Teachers seeking new inspiration for their classes
  • Beginners who need more strength to compliment their practice
  • People interested in a safe and effective way to learn handstands
