Handstands on Body Parts

Handstands are challenging wherever you do them, but the most challenging kind of handstands arguably are the ones we do on other human beings because balancing on limbs is way more unstable than the floor, blocks or canes! Here we present a progressive series of handstands on various body parts, ranging from an easy assisted lift to more challenging variations. Don't be discouraged if you aren't nailing these because they definitely take some practice!

Free Reverse Star

Reverse free star can seem like a level up in challenge from regular free star but the principles that make this pose consistent have a great carry over to any other inversion! This pose works with a precise stack & alignment from the flyer while the base works to create balance through a steady foot to shoulder connection.
