THE HANDSTAND PROGRAM

10 DAY CHALLENGE TO BUILD YOUR HANDSTAND

STRENGTH • TECHNIQUE • ACCOUNTABILITY

Z

SYSTEMATIC

Handstand is a challenging skill that requires a systematic approach, maximizing your efforts to produce the results you want. This 10 day program is expertly and anatomically designed to get you balancing handstand in your body. 

Z

10-DAY PROGRESSIVE FORMAT

Easy to follow format, doesnt require you to think about when, how or what you will practice. All you need ot do is show up for 10 days in a row and the training will do the work for you.

ACCOUNTABILITY

The biggest challenge for most people is not the pose itself, but the dedication it requires. Each day you will be assigned a specific drill/skill and you will take a photo/video and have the opportunity to share that in our private group for support and motivation!

EXPERT GUIDENCE

20 YEARS OF ACROBATIC TRAINING

For the past 20 years I have training handstands with the top acrobatic coaches in the world. I also spent 5 years performing professionally as an acrobat. The Acrobatic methodology is “Hands Down” the best when it comes to learning how to do a solid, stable, and predictable handstand.

ANATOMY

For the past 18 years I have studied Anatomy and have combined my acrobatic skills with my knowledge of anatomy and bio mechanics to create the most efficient and effective system for handstand.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching yoga for 18 years and began teaching handstand workshops in 2011. I have learned how to provide exactly what you need to balance a handstand regardless of your age, body type, experience or otherwise. Teaching Handstand has been one of my greatest passions in my yoga teaching career because the joy it brings to someone when they achieve what they thought was impossible.

ALL LEVELS APPROPRIATE

This handstand program caters to all levels from very beginner to advanced. You will be challenged appropriately at your level, there are no expectations only solutions.

IS IT TRULY ALL LEVELS APPROPRIATE? 

I don't have a handstand yet

Great!  You are in the right place.  You will learn how to do a handstand!

I'm scared of handstand

 You are not alone!  Most students I teach who are new to handstand face fears about going upside down. With the right techniques, strength and training regimen the fear you have will dictate because handstand will no longer be unknown, it will be familiar.

My handstand is inconsistent

Perfect. Most people lack consistency because they are missing fundamental techniques. Its easy to jump from beginner to somewhat advanced and skip steps that hold you back from a being masterful. In fact in any skill related practice this is the case and its the reason why so many sit on the edge of mastery but settle on mediocrity. This training will get you to a strong, consistent and predictable handstand by filling in the blanks for you.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT ONLINE YOGA CLASSES WITH MATT

Matt‘s classes are phenomenal- if you ever have the ability to practice with him, make use of it!! He has a very unique talent of combining anatomy, yoga philosophy and his own perspective into a super intense package of knowledge which is fun AND easy to understand. I enjoyed the April immersion a lot as it was a great way of deepening my own practice and broadening my horizon, especially as the lifetime access allows you to take classes
as often as you want- trust me, you will want to take them again! I cant wait for next month’s classes and highly recommend everyone to take the May pass and joining in on the journey.
~Nadja Kyra King - @nadja_kyra

Matt’s April pass was a journey. It was more than just the physical exploration of my practice but also helped me explore my spiritual practice. It was very nice to have a consistent practice during this time of uncertainty. If you are looking for a practice to ground yourself I would highly recommend exploring the Live Immersion of the Month.
~Amanda Barnes Salowsky

Covid_19 bought Matt into my home and my yoga practice. This last month I have learn’t so much it has deepened my practice and my understanding of the anatomy & biomechanics and how we use both in every asana we practice. He has also helped in my teaching, ie asking my students to think about the foot as a tripod “big toe, pinkie toe, heel ” I never imagined I would learn so much from the immersion.
