Miguel is one of the best handbalancing teachers in the world. He has the ability to motivate and inspire, to challenge and support and bring out your very best. His workshops are intense and fun, and he has the capacity to tune in to each individuals needs. His passion for handstands is infectious. But it’s more than just learning to balance on your hands - he teaches you how to bring the lessons learned from being upside down into your life.

-Mark Robberds

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.
