Handstands with Richard Durnford

Date: Sunday 26th March 2017

Time: 10.00 - 4.00pm

Price: £50 / £42 members & concessions

This workshop is ideal for those wising to start learning handstands and for the more experienced who want to improve their technique or learn new moves. Richard Durnford's approach to teaching these skills springs naturally from yoga and a deep appreciation of breath as an integral ingredient to not only handstands but all the circus disciplines. If anybody fancies going climbing over the weekend he's available. The day will be split into three sections:

10 - 12am - Breathing exercise and technique;

1 - 3pm - Training and Conditioning;

3.15 - 4pm - Other handstands
