The straddle pancake is useful for restoring pain-free function and balance to the hip joint and is vital for skill pursuits. It demonstrates full functional range of motion in your hips, and is necessary for the strength and mobility you’ll need if you’re working towards mastering the press to handstand. Even if the press to handstand isn’t your current goal, our approach to hip mobility is perfect in helping to alleviate back pain and some of the other negative impacts associated with modern life and long hours spent sitting at desks.
This class is designed for foundation and intermediate levels. Join us to gain a deeper understanding of Lift’s approach to mobilising the hips and training the pancake.
