    About this course

    Ben Lowrey's Ultimate Handstand Tutorial is densely packed with over 30 segments which teach different handstand exercises.

    The tutorial is highly edited to squeeze a large amount of tuition and explanation into a short amount of space, with many examples and camera angles, and with voice-over explanations which play whilst moves are being demonstrated.

    This Tutorial will challenge you and guide you from the beginning of your journey all the way to being a confident handbalancer and inversion specialist. This is a tutorial you can keep referring back to as some of the moves might take years to master.

    There is a dedicated segment for wall exercises which are suitable for beginners. That segment also contains strength exercises and drills to develop your shoulder stability. You will also find shoulder stretch exercises to open your shoulders.

    Ben Lowrey has been influenced by a combination of formal circus handbalancing, gymnastics, capoeira, and yoga, and has produced a tutorial which draws upon elements of all those disciplines.

    People in the Yoga world will find this tutorial is suitable to help them progress their Inversions and arm balances on the mat, but this will also encourage them out of the yoga box to play with other movement skills which have been borrowed from other disciplines such as gymnastics and capoeira. 

    Forearm stand, head stand, tripod head stand and crow variations are included in this tutorial including one-leg crow, side-crow, and other fun arm-balance variations. 

    Strong emphasis is placed on flow, playfulness, experimentation, and intuition during this tutorial, the student is encouraged to listen to their own body and move in ways which feel right to them. Not only does this help prevent injury but it also keeps enjoyment as a central theme and guiding principle. 

    Ben Lowrey feels that this is a unique approach which resembles several disciplines but is a unique combination of them all. 

    Ben Lowrey is based in Bristol, United Kingdom and teaches handstand classes and workshops all around the country.

    Whilst a range of Inversions are offered, this is primarily a handstand tutorial.
