Online classes

During lockdown, why not join Sammy for an online class? These HIIT style handstand classes could include a handstand drill against the wall, an abs or hip flexor exercise for compression work along with lots on flexibility. The aim of the classes is to keep everyone strong and allow them to carry on developing their core, flexibility and their endurance from the safety of their homes.

  • I have worked with Sammy on handstands for a few years and gone from barely being able to kick up, to being able to independently hold and balance a handstand. Every achievement no matter how small is celebrated and just makes you feel amazing. You will become addicted to handstands.

  • Sammy is an extraordinary teacher: he has something for every level. Most importantly, he is kind and understanding with a chilled and yet super positive energy so you will always want to turn up and do your best.
    — Kristina, handstand student
  • “Dinneen, perhaps the most technically accomplished performer of all six, showed a beautiful and impressive series of hand-balances. His particularly beautiful torso, silhouetted in the low-lighting, drew much appreciation from the female portion of the crowd.”
