Make the most of what you have,
and never stop working on your weaknesses
— Alex Niño

Alex offers 1:1 sessions in Waterloo, SE1. If you’re here for a day or looking for regular coaching he will focus on your specific needs and goals. From achieving deeper backbends to straighter handstands or improving general strength and flexibility Alex will break it down and give you the tools you need to get there.

To deliver results Alex uses his unique UPEP method:

  1. Understand - the movement and requirements for it (eg. flexibility, strength, awareness)

  2. Prepare - lots of homework, conditioning, quality drills

  3. Execute - you will be taken through the movement step by step to connect the body and brain

  4. Practice - lots of it assisted and unassisted. There will be falls, mistakes and much learning in this phase.

Handstand & GST Class Highlights

The classes are a blend of handstands, handstand press and foundational gymnastic strength training (GST) to build your strength and flexibility gradually using safe and effective methods. They will increase your range of motion through mobility drills to bulletproof your joints. 

These handstand focussed classes are the perfect place to start for complete beginners to intermediate level. With an emphasis on wrist and shoulder prep, hand placement and different techniques to build strength and confidence this class will inspire you to move past your fears and start feeling more comfortable being upside down. You will learn how to safely build a solid inversion and how to spot a partner to help bring body awareness and create a fine handstand.

Each class will look at the four elements of a handstand and use mobility drills focussed on either the shoulders, spine or hips.

The four elements of a handstand:

  1. strength and conditioning

  2. alignment

  3. balance

  4. entries into a handstand.

Limited to 14 participants 

*payable on the day/ 24hr notice cancellation period
