Hand Balance & Body Awareness
TAUGHT BY YURI MARMERSTEIN
students currently mastering their handstands.
Fix that one thing making you lose your balance.
of students say the fear of falling is the biggest obstacle to their handstand.
I've been so afraid of falling because I'm 52 years old. But now that I have an idea of how to do it right, I'm less afraid.
YOU’RE NOT HERE TO JUST LEARN THE HANDSTAND
You’re here to move away from that wall, win the battle against fear, hold freestanding for two minutes with ease, walk upside down, show off to the family, expand your body awareness, win a crossfit event, share your newfound knowledge with your clients, and do so with the attitude that it takes time to properly develop the skill and strength necessary.

Apply What You Learn & Make Progress
Really pleased with my progress so far! It’s weird how the handstand feels straight…then you look at your video and you look like a banana 🤦🏻♂️clearly need to focus on locking my arms more.
Hey all, here's an update on what my handstand looks like at the moment. I'm definitely getting more confident with freestanding attempts 😃
Happy moment from straddle to L-sit, after many fails... Never give up! ❤🤸♀️
I'm proud of my progress. Seeing everyone else's is motivation.
Hi, I feel like I am getting there and the next kick will be the one when it all will come together. There have been quite few kicks since then 😝 Consistency and practice must do.
Maybe some small improvements in my shoulder mobility, meanwhile my goal at the moment is just to get comfortable while in handstand, so I’m basically trying to play with it, moving my legs and stuff (tuck is way too difficult for now) XD
I’m getting closer! Any tips welcome! 🙏🏻💙
About 5 weeks in now. Also practicing drills of HSPU. The holds at the bottom are really helpful. I feel more in control on my press up to starting position. Can’t say enough great words on how much this program has given me some real structure to my training.
Getting close to that 10 sec hold. 🤸
I'm really proud of my wobble at the top here because it's the start of me correcting my form at the top. I also started to "feel" what the rounded back should feel like on the way up 😅 thanks for all your tips Yuri. It doesn't look like it yet but it is helping!
Thx @Yuri for your advice. I did the kicking up drills without the intention to try to balance. Somehow with no expectations from the beginning of trying to kick into balance makes it less stressful.
Two of my longest handstands and I did them in a row!!! Progress is coming much faster now that I can balance more reliably 😁😁 the drills in the course have helped me so much!!
Hiii!!! I may be one of the most newies here but I am happy to have achieved this because I had a big mental blockage and could never ever do handstand...so i wanted to share my little improvement 💪
Putting into practice what I learnt from unlocking the handstand.... long way to go 💪
Previous to trying Yuri’s class I’d just kick up and hope to get lucky. I’m definitely feeling the control over balance this method seems to offer. Please ignore my wife’s heckling. 😅
A Curriculum Born from
15+ Years of Experience
Meet Yuri Marmertstein
Yuri’s courses come from a knowledge base that spans over 15 years of teaching & training in disciplines such as capoeira, gymnastics, martial arts, weightlifting, dance, and circus arts to name a few.
“Teachers often don’t do a great job teaching skills which are natural to them, and then they don’t understand why a student can’t copy them or what they’re missing to get there. Yuri’s movement philosophy resonates deeply with me. My upside down skills have been revolutionized.”
One of the most sought after balance trainers & professional acrobats in the world.
Yuri has never considered himself a natural for any aspect of his hand balance skills. He credits his simple yet profound teaching style to years of being self-taught without using resources like there are today.
He has appeared on stages from Vegas to Broadway and traveled the world teaching his perspective on hand balancing, acrobatics, and other physical practices to students everywhere.
