Hi!

I’m Sonji and I’ve created this platform to help you develop your handstand practice!

My own obsession started when I was 28 (which I thought was pretty late). But eversince I started, handbalancing has transformed my life and taken me through an interesting path of traveling the world, meeting high level handbalancers, learning and sharing my experiences with you guys.

I’ve been learning and teaching ever since I got hooked (I’ve been a Personal Trainer since 2012) and I hope that my journey and the FREE RESOURCES I provide here support you in improving your own handstands!

And if you ever feel like you’re getting stuck in a lonesome practice and need some personal help with your handstands, join my LIVE & ON DEMAND CLASSES ! We have an amazing community of handbalancers who are all at different stages of their journey, but are all in it together!

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!
