Hand Balancing

for adults at all levels

Proudly supported by



What is it?

Hand balancing or Handstands is the art and practice of holding an inverted body shape using the hands and arms as the main support. There can be many variations to the hand stand position such as tuck, pike, and straddle legs positions, including the more advanced one arm hold. Handstands can be performed from the floor, canes, blocks or more creative sub structures. Handstands can be trained individually or as part of a partner or group acrobatic team.

For Who

Hand balancing can be practiced at all levels. It is a progressive discipline with many beginner skills to master before advancing to more difficult moves. Practice training involves body preparation including the strengthening and mobilising of muscles and joints necessary to develop a safe practice.
