Week 3 of 6 and Anthony's group are flying in our 6 week Handstand course held each Tuesday evening. Here we have the spotlight on the delightful Aishling. Aishling has a gymnastic background but hasn't held a handstand since childhood; her words. In just 3 classes she has what's in the video; consistency and technique, with much admiration from my beginners group in the background. We have invited our Handstand group to our specialty Mobility class before Handstands and Aishling came today... one telling thing was that she is very attentive, interested in the details and eager to learn with a nice quiet patience and observing nature. She has zero mobility issues but some small tweaks which she was only too happy to work on. It's just an observation from me that all of the above are qualities that equate to achieving good skills like the handstand. Having a coach like @claffeyinmotion doesn't hurt either 😎 The focus on Aishling but all in all we are proud of everyone so far and absolutely LOVE the vibes everyone creates. Having said that, every single person needs to work, work and work some more. There are only so many principles, only so many methods to know... all of which have been given. Hard work. Often. #AMFitness #HandstandsandCoffee #DublinGym #IrishFitFam #Terenure #MovementCulture
There is no magic bullet. No quick path. No cutting corners. The secret of success is consistent action daily towards your goals. Mine was to hold a free handstand hold by Easter. I signed up for this 6 weeks course @andy_amfitness and here it is - my beautiful free handstand hold, delighted with it! Happy Easter everyone! #amfitness #handstand
Making progress on handstands. This is definitely the longest I've ever held a free standing handstand for. Can't believe how good it feels once you get that alignment correct. I felt almost weightless for those few secs. My camera man skillz need some brushing up next 🙈 lol. I try so hard to be cool but can never quite pull it off 😂 ah well !!! I looked like Mr.Bean with my tee shirt tucked into my pants so in order to up the 'coolness' I ditched it and then mucked up the filming ... I like to think I'm so uncool I'm cool 😏 Loving learning new skills and having a lot of fun with @andy_amfitness and @claffeyinmotion on tue eves. I'm enjoying mixing it up and learning how to not take myself and my training so seriously. You cannot help but leave their studio with a smile 😃 #handstands #perfectpractice #learnnewthings #havefun #movement #amfitness #barefootbarbelle #challenge #acceptwhereyouare #bodyweight #happiness #zerofucks #doyourthing #noyoubecool
Video bombed by @andy_amfitness this morning 😂 #hello #pointyourtoes great progress this year with my handstand by just adding it on to end of sessions on top of programming.. From a couple of seconds hold at the start of the year to a few 30 sec holds recently it's been very rewarding and couldn't have achieved it without the quality coaching from @andy_amfitness @claffeyinmotion and @vincent_homoagilus #AMfitness #alwaysmoving also managed a 3 rep PB back squat of 90kg along with some espresso tasting 😜 happy enough considering the lower back issues I have, something I'm determined to resolve in 2016 #aim #anatomyinmotion #coffee #handstand #irishfitfam #terenure #Movement #movementculture #gymnastics #strengthtraining #backsquat #MovinDublin
The Allostasis Analogy;
THERE ARE TWO THINGS TO UNDERSTAND WHEN TALKING ABOUT THE HANDSTAND.
THE FIRST, is to realise that we never achieve pure static balance. Not while we are alive anyway.
THE SECOND, is to acknowledge that our very nature has us in constant pursuit of it - whether you call it finding centre, homeostasis, or balance... it is something we are all searching for subconsciously and for some of us, consciously.
What this gives us is an understanding that the process of balance, in life and in any area, is actually a process of rebalancing. We are constantly trying to achieve balance, and it is fleeting.
Join us for a 2 hour session of handstands to bring you from the floor to upside down consistently and with the knowledge to pass on to your own clients or kids.
As each week passes we build on the foundation and progression for each person, while very happy to have complete beginners each week.
This class, like everything we do here, treats each individuals mobility, strength and technique issues and gives a crystal clear picture of how to achieve your handstand.
Taught by Andy & Anthony, our process has developed by learning from Ido Portal & Yuval Ayalon in person and most recently learning the finer details from Emmet Louis on corrective techniques & modern methods of mobility.
We have coloured inside and outside the lines to get an understanding of this art from every angle and are happy to offer the experience to everyone.
There are many, many benefits for doing handstands - we have been drawn to it for years and years and still can't get enough.
Whether you 're doing it to benefit your CrossFit, or your mood, Handstands are just awesome!
We have a full barista set up in the studio, a Nuova Simonelli Aurelia and a Mahlkonig K30 grinder.
We use 3fe beans and 3fe standards with the coffee.
All in all you have a very worthwhile and enjoyable 2 hours on a Saturday morning in Terenure with good people.
