 Handstand Teacher?

The Handstand Instructor Certification is a mentorship program that guides you every step of the way from start to professional and beyond. Learning starts with all the pedagogical background of the discipline, giving trainees live coaching experience with real students, and rewards successful graduates with unique teaching job opportunities.

This great opportunity does not come easy though, as candidates will have to pass all the following criteria to achieve their certification. 

- Coursework

- Supervised Teaching Sessions

- Demonstration of Skills

Each of the steps is outlined below


Complete Coursework

Our Level 1 (Intro to Inversion) and Level 2 (Basics of Balancing) Courses cover all the technical details about the handstand, including

  • Full body physical preparation

  • What is balance? How do we find it?

  • Overcoming fear and finding focus

  • Shapes, Transitions, Entries and Exits

The Teacher Track in those courses also covers the pedagogical details of guiding students to their own discovery of balance, along with

  • Diagnosing and correcting common mistakes

  • Troubleshooting student issues

  • Clear and efficient cueing

  • Safe spotting techniques for all situations

Supervised Sessions

The crux of the program is the Supervised Teaching Sessions, where candidates will be assessed on the their live teaching abilities. Each session includes feedback and homework, and all sessions must be passed with Tutor satisfaction for the candidate to achieve completion.


Demonstration of Skills

If you can't do it, you shouldn't be teaching it. 

All candidates will require a 30s freestanding handstand to be eligible to pass. 

No excuses.
