Soft AcroYoga & Twisted Handstands with Nat Whittingham

Event Details

Soft Acrobatics and Twisted Handstands with Nat Whittingham.

In this class for Circus artists, Dancers, Acrobats, and keen movers, we will explore an eclectic vocabulary of acrobatic movements, playful handstand variations, and twisting drills.

Specific focusses will be on low-level tricks, suitable for hard floor, that favour precise coordination over strength. We’ll look at direction changes, weight transfer and counterweighting, as well as conditioning and alignment for acrobatics.

All of this will be in wrapped up a high energy workshop, with loud music, that will hopefully leave you with a smile on your face and some new movements and knowledge to do with as you wish!

Workshop open to all levels, but prior experience with floor acrobatics, will allow participants to get the most out of this workshop.

Suggested Pre-Requisites:
Forward roll, Backward roll, Cartwheel, Kick up to handstand.
Willingness to try new things and good attitude also a bonus!
