Handstands with Jordan Garcia

  • Gravity Aerial Arts 5925 East Evans Avenue, Unit 125 Denver, CO, 80222 United States (map)

WHAT: This workshop is for those who have never tried handstands, those who have been practicing but need some direction and help progressing, or those who can do a handstand and want to clean up their basic technique.

What we will be covering:
-How to properly warm up and prepare our bodies for handstands. Wrist, shoulder, spine, and hip stretching.
-Proper body position. How each piece of your body should be for the most optimal and aesthetically pleasing handstand for you.
-How to strengthen and mobilize your body so you can hold a handstand with greater ease and cleaner lines.
-Progressions to work up to the freestanding handstand.
-What you mindset should be to understand balancing on your hands.

WHO: Jordan’s Primary disciplines are Handbalancing, Acrobatics, and Aerial Straps. He also practices Partner Acrobatics, Duo Straps, and Juggling. He got started practicing handstands at the age of 16, in his home of Nokesville, Virginia using YouTube tutorials for guidance. Once he was 18, he began to attend Handbalancing Workshops with some of the professionals he had admired over the years. During that time he began to branch out and explore of disciplines like Parkour, Rock Climbing, BJJ & MMA, Gymnastics, and more. He left his home in Virginia to come to Charlotte, North Carolina. While street performing he met someone who put him in contact with one of the Nouveau Sud cast members who would later recruit him. Now, along with performing, he travels and teaches Handbalancing workshops across the United States and other countries. 

One of his goals is to show people that with enough passion and hard work anyone can achieve high levels of skill in whatever they choose to do.
