An in depth 1.25 hour workshop that will help you achieve the coveted splits balance! You do NOT need a flat split to train this skill, AND, I show you wraps you can use to start training the balance before you have the active flex strength for the full pose.
In this series of 9 videos you will learn:
-Specific exercises on and off the fabric to develop the muscles needed for this jaw-dropping skill.
-Correct engagement and posture in the splits balance
-Wraps you can use for progressions as well as wrapping and setup technique
-Guidance in the balancing act and how to bail
-Recovery stretches (follow along)
