Hi!

I’m Sonji and I’ve created this platform to help you get rocksolid on your hands and get capable of any shape!

It’s full of FREE RESOURCES to point you in the right direction.

Find the best community support and get daily guidance in my LIVE & ON DEMAND CLASSES on Zoom.

Skyrocket your progress and overcome your specific roadblocks through PRIVATE LESSONS.

My own obsession with handstands started when I was 28 (which I thought was pretty late). But ever since I started, handbalancing has transformed my life and taken me through an interesting path of traveling the world, training with high level handbalancers and visiting countless gyms and circus schools. I’ve been learning and teaching movement my whole life and have specialized in handstands & flexibility over the last four years. I hope that my journey and the resources I provide here support you in nailing your handstand & flexibility goals!

Stop falling out of your handstand!

Sign up for tips, tricks, tutorials and inspiration to become rocksolid on your hands!


It is all about handstands and more handstands. Because let’s be honest, they are pretty addictive. My husband Ivo and I started this show when we traveled the world and connected with a ton of handbalancers. We figured that not everyone has the chance to do what we did and we wanted to share the experience and the many things that the handbalancers had to say. Now that we’re settled in Austria we’re extending the show to keep the conversation and the fuel for your training going!
