Virtual Workshop Info
These all-level workshops are offered every few months and are a great way to learn safe and effective ways to train specific areas. Each workshop focuses on Catie Brier's methods for training and retaining flexibility. So you will walk away not only knowing how to train each area but why we do each exercise.
Virtual Workshops are 75 minutes with a maximum of 6 participants. So every student will get as much personal attention and feedback as needed! Each class is 60€ (per person).
Middle Split Magic
Have you been stuck at the same place in your middle split for what seems like FOREVER? Then this workshop is for you! We will go over exercises and stretches to improve your middle split and straddle (passively AND actively!). So whether you want a better straddle for your press handstand, or just really want those last two inches to get flat already, this workshop will absolutely help you reach your middle split goals!
Seriously Square Splits
Have a hard time understanding how to square your hips? Or don’t know what is limiting your progress in front splits? Then you’ve come to the right place! In this workshop, we will focus on the flexibility and strength needed for square splits, why “square” is so important, and post-stretching active flexibility. Whether you’re just starting your flexibility journey, or you’ve been at it for a while, you will walk away from this workshop knowing how to square those splits and what to work on to keep seeing progress!
Elusive Upper Back
Can't seem to get your upper back to bend at will or move at all? This workshop helps students to understand how to unlock those elusive upper back muscles. We will go over back, shoulder, and neck extension exercises so students can walk away knowing how to address upper back mobility and also be able to connect it with shoulder and neck extension.
Hippy Dippy Back Flex
Do you want to understand how to better use your hips for a stronger, more even backbend? Then this is your workshop! In this workshop we will cover general back flex, but with the main emphasis being how to use those hips for a stronger, safer backbend. With exercises targeting proper glute engagement, deep hip flexor stretching, and overall active backbending, we will get you into those hips and out of your low back for a virtually pain-free backbend.
It is HIGHLY recommended that you attend the Elusive Upper Back Workshop prior to this class.
Introduction to Bendy Handstands
Learn proper, safe technique and drills for training forearm stands and handstands in bendy shapes! We'll go through exercises to strengthen and train correct shoulder alignment, go through scorpion and stag/split technique, and work on moving through different backbend-y shapes.
Must be able to hold a bridge with arms straight and shoulders stacked over wrists
Must be able to hold a handstand (at the wall is fine) for 1 minute
