I have been training intensely with Miguel for almost 3 years now. I have trained along side him in groups, retreats, private classes, and now online coaching!
Not only is he a world-class hand balancer but also a great teacher. He is an inspiration to me and he empowers me everyday in becoming a better hand balancer.
Miguel’s approach is extremely focused and structured. He taught me that the foundations of a hand balance is built upon the pillars of a solid core, flexibility and strength.
I progressed from a consistent handstand hold to different techniques such as straddle, tuck, pike, press up. I would have never imagined myself be able to do these movements three years ago.
I never thought I could come this far, but I did and will continue to do what I love. I can’t thank him enough for being the greatest teacher in my life.
Miguel is not only a professional handbalancer but also a great teacher. He is very patient with his students and his teaching is very sharp and effective. I can't repay him enough for his great effort on me, all I could do is continue to bear his spirit in my handstand journey.
