Handstand & Balance Monthly Master Classes, led by Team GB Athlete Jamie Jeffery

Handstand & Balance Monthly Master Classes, led by Team GB Athlete Jamie Jeffery

Third Sunday of each Month, February – April

12:30-14:30

£38

 

The aim of these master classes is to provide a regular training session and learning environment for developing the handstand and principles of balance in the body that can be carried over into participant’s regular yoga practice.

The sessions will be two hours long and include a gymnastics style body preparation warm up, a led section for handstand development exercises, and then an hour of practice where Jamie will work with each of the participants individually to target specific needs.

We would encourage those curious about inversions and beginning their handstand journey to come along, but also people who may be looking for guidance or support at the intermediate level. It is Jamie’s intention that each participant will leave the session with a specific and personalized understanding of what they need to work on to see improvement in their handstand.

In terms of the handstand itself, we will look at the functionality of the position and how this can be conditioned using simple body weight strength and flexibility training exercises. From here we will explore the process of learning and developing the skill, and how to structure practice such that improvement can be seen and tracked over time.

About Jamie:

Jamie is a gymnastics coach and teacher of flexibility and mobility, core and local strength and movement skills. He works with people on the foundation of their functionality with a view to enhancing their enjoyment of the body. Jamie spent 10 years as an elite acrobatic gymnast and 3 years on the British team with his training partner. They represented GB at Two World Cups and the 2019 Acrobatic Gymnastics European championships in Israel, from which they came away with a silver medal in the men’s pair dynamic exercise. They were also selected for the 2020 world championships, though these did not take place due to Covid. In this time Jamie also spent 5 years developing his skills as a coach in Richmond Gymnastics Association’s squad program. For 3 of these years he also worked in the general gymnastics, inclusion and preschool programs, and so became accustomed to working with a full spectrum of abilities. From 2021-2022 he was the lead coach for RGA’s National Development Plan squad, in which time gymnasts under his team’s guidance achieved great success at Regional and National competition level.  He is currently the resident acrobatics and gymnastics coach at the Commando Temple gym in Deptford, London. Jamie also works with people as an online coach.
