About me

A foodie and traveler with a curious and creative soul.

I have dedicated the last 28 years of my life to learning, exploring and applying many different crafts like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Calisthenics, Yoga, Running and Resistance Training in the quest to bettering myself through movement. Now, in my 40s, my desire to become the best possible student, teacher and person is burning brighter than ever.

Today, I am inspired by Hand Balancers Miguel Sant’ana and Andrey Moraru. My passion for Hand Balancing ignited after I had the opportunity to learn from Miguel Sant’ana, back in 2016. That experience changed me forever! Immediately, falling in love with the art. From that experience I decided to do whatever it took to learn it.

Hand Balancing has taught me about patience, consistency, problem solving, creativity and acceptance. An art with zero short cuts. It requires your full presence. Show up with a disciplined approach: willingness to learn and accept that most days, if not all days will be filled with defeat and suffering. Learn to love the daily struggle and to celebrate the small wins; trust the process and enjoy the ride.

It would be my pleasure to share with you, what I have learned along the way. I am available for Private lessons-Small groups up to 6 Students.

Please contact me with any inquiries.

Services I Offer

Have you ever been curious? Want to learn? From complete beginner to intermediate level, Yoga practitioners, Calisthenics athletes, Fitness adventurers…Discover a new realm of happiness through handstands.

For the Beginner:

Let me share some valuable lessons I have learnt along the way, things I wish I knew when I first started.

  • Firstly: we assess “what your body needs” so we can get the most out of your practice.

  • We explore shoulder positioning, understanding the push, use of the fingers, creating the right amount of tension in the body, use of your core and breath.

  • Say goodbye to the fear of falling. Learn how to apply safe and effective exit strategies that work. This is a key for moving forward with your practice.

  • In the beginning the wall will be your best friend. The wall will help you with building the required strength, endurance and alignment needed to balance a freestanding handstand. You will be provided with specific tools at different stages of your journey to help you solve the puzzle to finding perfect balance in a solid handstand.

For the Intermediate practitioner:

This is for those of you who can already hold a 20 second handstand or more but struggle with the next stage, which is applying different movements or strength-based techniques.

  • Learn how to execute different entries like the tuck, straddle and pike.

  • Unlock your first 1 minute handstand and beyond with an effective endurance approach.

  • Master techniques like the handstand push up, press to handstand and more.

  • Technique assessments and individual programming are also available.

It’s always nicer to move with more freedom. Let’s get you more mobile so you can perform at your absolute best, feel incredible and sleep like a rock!

Whether you are just starting out on your fitness journey or a peak professional athlete, we all would like to move with more grace and ease in our daily life, especially as we grow older.

Even with myself, starting my flexibility journey as an adult did not come easy. I had to work hard and stay very consistent even though it was very uncomfortable. It has been a long ride, but it has been worth it. It has given me freedom to perform at my very best, sleep better, and feel great. It is something that I have grown to love and look forward to, daily.

  • I will help you incorporate useful methods of stretching and mobility into your daily routine.

  • Techniques and methods used will be  Stretch Therapy™, Contract/Relax, Dynamic stretching, Ballistic stretching, Active flexibility, Isometric holds, loaded stretching, pulsing and static stretching: we will find out what is best for you, also go through when to use these for better results.

  • Partner stretching, a very affective way to gain ROM (range of movement) possibly my favourite, learned from Stretch Therapy™ founder Kit Laughlin & Olivia Allnut.
  • Facia release techniques using balls, sticks and props.

To have a great read about the legend himself and one of the coolest dudes I have had an opportunity to learn from – Kit Laughlin, founder of Stretch Therapy™, please go to www.stretchtherapy.net

Are you ready to unlock the new and improved 2.0 version of yourself? I am willing to start this journey with you!

What is your goal? What is your plan? How will you act on it?

  • Increase your fitness level.

  • Build strength through body weight movements.

  • Weight loss.

  • Physique development using only Body weight.

  • Maybe you need a training buddy?

I can help you with all of these things. The best part: you don’t have to join a gym. I will structure the planning behind your goal and provide the support you need to achieve it!

I specialize in bodyweight exercises that are fun and will challenge you, regardless of your fitness level. Just show up, and leave the rest up to me.

I am a mobile trainer, meaning I can come to you and help you achieve your goals from a location that makes you comfortable. All we need is some floor space and a mat. I will bring the rest!

Individual programming available for Handstands, Mobility/Flexibility or Fitness goals!

All programs are custom made for your individual goals & needs and are designed for an 8 week period. If you wish to continue after that, the same will apply.

First we will go through an assessment to find out where you are at, what limitations you may have, and where you would like to be within a realistic timeframe. This will, of course, depend on how much time you have to devote on this particular skill, ability or challenge.

How it works? Whats is required?

There are two ways to do this – Online or in person.

  • FREE 20 minute assessment at the beginning.
  • Once I receive your payment, we can move onto the next stage.
  • I will then design your personalized 8 Week Program.
  • With each 8 Week Program you will also have weekly support from me.
  • Your 8 Week Program does also include two 60 minutes sessions.

ALL of the above will apply to the In Person option, with (of course) the extra added energizing and charm that human interaction (working in person) brings to the scene.

Both options are amazing for all those of you that are really good at doing your homework and are self motivated.

Testimonials

"Soc alumne de l'Stelios des de fa uns mesos i sense dubte, és el millor instructor de hanstand que hagués pogut tenir. M'ha ajudat a arribar més enllà dels objectius proposats. .

Excel·lent docent, rutines setmanals, correcció de postures i treball metòdic amb seguiment diari... Tot plegat, amb molta motivació, bona energia i la confiança de saber que ho fa amb molta passió.

Afortunats els alumnes que hem tingut l'oportunitat d'assistir a les seves classes. Recomanable 100%.
I com ell diu: "If it were easy it wouldn't be as fun"."

"Hola em dic Xevi, fent ioga amb la Carolina a Cruïlles, un dia em va proposar que vindria un noi australià que es deia Stelios a fer Handstand. La veritat que va ser fantàstic, em va encantar la classe i poder estar dret amb les mans és una experiència molt bonica.

L'Stelios és un crac, ens va explicar la tècnica amb treball físic, corregint a tothom, per al final de la classe poder estar drets amb les mans a terra! No és fàcil, però ell fa que sigui fàcil.

Sempre que vaig als seus tallers, és un moment especial per mi.
Gràcies, Stelios"

"Stelios is very professional and patient. His workshops are fun and full of useful drills to improve with the technic of handstanding.

He also gave me great tips for my personal handstand practice.

I totally recommend him."

"Steve es un excelente profesor. Se nota que ama lo que hace y se transmite. En sus clases es cuidadoso y entregado.

Steve es un buen comunicador y genera una conexión con cada alumno y tengas el nivel que tengas, te sientes seguro. Te explica que vas a hacer dando diferentes opciones para cada uno.

Te sientes en una clase bien preparada, que aprendes y avanzas en cada sesión. En sus clases sientes seguridad, que trabajas duro, pero con él te lo pasas bien. Te diviertes y casi no te das cuenta. Pero cuando has acabado te sientes más confiado, positivo y capaz. ¡Feliz!

Lo recomiendo al 100%"
Carolina

"I'm so happy to have met Steve. He is not only a nice human being and full of energy but also an incredible teacher with lots of knowledge about the body's muscle functions.

The amount of different types of exercises he uses in order to increase strength and flexibility feels unlimited.

I'm amazed at what my body is now capable of doing after one year participating in his classes."
Montse
Girona, Catalonia
"Des que vaig començar les classes amb l'Steve he notat un gran progrés amb mi mateixa tan corporal i mental. Gràcies a la seva pràctica he millorat molt la meva flexibilitat, la força, la resistència i he après a ser més conscient del meu cos, en cada precís detall.

Les seves classes m'estan ajudant a millorar amb altres pràctiques com el ioga, córrer, nadar, etc. Sent que també estic travessant molts límits que anteriorment no em creia capaç de vèncer i això em fa sentir molt satisfeta amb mi mateixa.

Sense oblidar la dedicació acurada i individualitzada que transmet en cada classe i la confiança i motivació que hi diposita. I personalment afegir el fet de poder practicar l'anglès.

En definitiva, molt agraïda de poder gaudir de l'Steve i les seves classes. Per a mi són el gran motor que em manté viva cada setmana."
