This workshop is a series of four videos that go into depth in an inversion that does NOT use momentum, and explains how mastery of this skill (or lack thereof) affects your hip key and inversion climbs. This is for the aerialist who wants to polish their foundations to make inversions, hip keys, and inversion climbs stronger and lose NO height.
-Learn good technique in fundamental skills
-Stop losing height in hip keys and climbs
-Polish up your form in these essential skills
-Call upon your lower core to power your moves
-Discover connections between key fundamental skills
This is not a workshop on how to do the easiest versions of inversions, rather, the point is that it builds on your inversion, hip key, and inversion climbs.
If you do not already have your inversion, this workshop could still be incredibly useful to you, just please understand that I am teaching a more challenging type of inversion.
Look at the difference between the more common inversion that uses momentum and a pike/compression inversion. This video also gets into some drills you can do in the knot to work toward a pike inversion.
