I first took the “Nail It-Handstand Workshop” last year with Niki and Jen. At that point, I had been suffering from severe tennis and golfer’s elbow for about 18 months. Being both a pole teacher and competitive volleyball player, I was constantly exacerbating the injury. In desperation, I had tried every cream, brace and contraption on the market, but could not seem to find relief. At their handstand workshop, I learned how to connect my hands to the muscles in my back and lats, instead of relying so much on my forearms. By practicing their technique, I found the pain in my elbows lessening until one day I forgot I even had a problem. I still occasionally feel a twinge when I teach too many classes in a row or play in a big tournament. But I do a few handstands daily and focus on making the connection between my hands and core and the pain is relieved, as if by a miracle. I am so grateful for their teachings and will continue to practice my handstands!
