Handstands are BACK!

By | Blog

Can’t seem to hold your handstand away from the wall?

Having a hard time staying aware when you’re upside down?

Maybe you’re training handstands really hard but aren’t making the progress you would like?

“I hear you! Handstands can be super hard, especially if you are training without a coach. That’s where I come in. I pull from my long background as a competitive gymnast and well-rounded mover to teach the strength, balance, technique, and alignment required to handstand like a pro. I crafted this workshop to accommodate a wide range of handstanders, regardless of past experience. In this workshop, I will walk you through tons of helpful position drills, flexibility exercises, and practice opportunities so you can leave feeling confident in your handstand practice.” — Brandon Romstadt

Gain strength, flexibility and confidence!

Supporting Our Greater Community 💚

Updated studio policy for HYA as of August 3, 2021

While Buncombe County is in a state of high transmission and for the safety of our community – to help mitigate the spread of the new delta variant – we will now be requiring masks indoors at all times (for vaccinated and unvaccinated folks.)

To learn more about this challenging decision keep reading.


We all knew it was a matter of time…🥴

And you must know we are in a pickle of a situation. There is no perfect solution that will make everyone happy.

“To mask or Not to mask?” that is the question. 

Alas, here we are … again. 😷

The level of community transmission in Buncombe county has now jumped to HIGH risk. See Covid Data Tracker for current stats.

Our greatest hope was that by now we would be out of the woods and out the other side of this pandemic.

I would love to imagine an idyllic reality where Covid is not happening at all, we bask in the sun with rainbows and unicorns 24/7, as well as have open hamstrings and never ending vegan chocolate that ends hormonal fluctuations…  and … oh…how about no global climate change, no extinction of animals and free Bitcoin for all!
