How To Do A Handstand: Learn To Balance A Fearless Handstand in 20 Days or Less

Most people believe themselves incapable of doing handstands, and even those who can balance upside down invariably learned through repeated failure. Students are taught to throw themselves against a wall and hope that they don’t fall over; there is never a sense of play or experimentation. The result is that almost everyone gives up in frustration, and those who don't get injured.

Handstands need not be learned through repeated failure. It was for this reason that I wrote "How To Do A Handstand: Learn To Balance A Fearless Handstand in 20 Days or Less."

I didn’t grow up in the circus, and took my first gymnastics class at 18. I began learning handstands, just like everyone else, through trial-by-failure. But, eventually, I realized that repeated failure isn’t the most effective technique for learning, and broke handstands down into their components parts. I realized how much fear of being upside down was holding me back, and took steps to alleviate that, as well. I’ve created a simple process for learning handstands without the usual struggles and pain.

The book includes more than 50 instructional images and videos. Learn more at http://www.fearlesshandstands.com
