Re: Episode 5

Excellent, that sounds good.

Remember that it takes time to progress.

Learning a handstand is an exercise in patience too :)

Best wishes,

Re: Episode4

Hi Katja, I see what you mean. Your shoulder mobility is not too bad! It needs a bit more work but especially in a handstand it opens up quite well and you don't compensate too much inthe handstand. I like your handstand position, your spine is quite curved both top and bottom so I would expect this...

Re: Kick up

Hello Micmic, Thank you for posting the video. Thank you Katja, for the detailed answer, which contains a lot of important aspects of the kick-up. And I agree, it takes time to learn a handstand!

I would suggest that for now you only do the handstand holds facing the wall and in a slight diagonal towards the wall to help you open the shoulders.

Re: Episode 2: L-shape - hips above shoulders

Hiya, Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
