Candlestick Pose (Beginner Inversion)

Candlestick is the most basic in a series of shoulderstand-type inversions in acro, so it's a great place to start if you're working on these progressions. It's also a great way to practice inversions, leg position, and handstand alignment for the flyer in a relatively controlled environment. It's a good way for the base to get used to feeling a flyer's weight entirely on their hands as well. Please use a spot if possible since we're going upside down! Skill demonstration 1:35

Candlestick Shoulderstand

Candlestick is one of our favorite ways to start inverting with a partner! Largely a flyer driven pose, bases learn to to be stable and solid as the start to bear the flyers weight on their arms. In this video we explore entrances , exits, alignment, range of motion and spotting.
