Frequently Asked Questions:

Is the handstand workshop suitable for beginners?

Yes it is! If you've ever tried a headstand, crow or kicking up into a handstand against the wall this will be ideal for you! We'll start from basic alignment drills and then move on to spotted and wall handstand.

What if I can already hold a handstand? Will I learn anything?

Yes. Many of the participants of my previous workshops come from gymnastics, pole dance or some sort of acrobatic background. The workshops will be adapted to each person taking part so everyone can get the most of it.

Can children attend your workshop?

Unfortunately, this is adults only workshop. Some teenagers with athletic/gymnastics background can be considered. This will be considered individually - please email me on kubajurszacoaching@gmail.com to discuss details.

Do you offer refunds?

Unfortunately, there will be no refunds. Booking means that you commit to attend the workshop. However, if for some reason you cannot attend, you may arrange for someone else to take your place.
