    Nope, nothing. It's actually pretty safe to learn on your own IMO... All you really need is a nice bit of space -- Preferably outside on a grass patch or something. Probably the only thing you need to know is how to do is go into a roll from a handstand -- As it doesn't hurt at all compared to falling flat on your back. You just bend your arms, and curl your back as you start to fall.
    You only have to move around until you get your feet off the ground.

    I don't have the upper-body strength to do that. I can barely manage pushups!

    I have been working on my leg flexibility though, I've improved some and I might even be able to do a split someday soon.
    I seriously need a new sig. Will try Photoshop later.

    Good luck! A friend of mine used to do the splits, but he stopped practicing it so now he can't anymore. It takes a lot of practice, so hang in there! My doctor says I shouldn't do the splits because I'm too heavy.

    Well, I'll give you some advice. Do LOTS OF PUSHUPS. They help ALOT. Before I started my regular pushup schedule (like 3 sets of 25 reps of pushups at night, which is the only time i have for exercise) I could barely do a handstand -- It was waaay too hard. But after all that exercise (perhaps a month or so? or maybe it was a few weeks) my handstands became alot steadier, longer and... well -- better overall.

    Keep it up with the pushups, don't stop! Do them everyday -- Even if it's only like 5 or so. I'm practicing static flexibility for the splits too -- Maybe someday I'll be able to do it.

    I stopped doing pushups cause my elbows started to hurt, the tendons or whatever they're called, I was afraid of tearing them. I'm not even heavy at all, I must have REALLY weak arms.

    Re: can you do...

    I can only do a handstand if it's against a wall, that doesn't count does it? lol.

    The most impressive thing I can do is a front split, wish I could do a side split, that's rarer.

    Hah, I'm sure my arms would snap too. I can barely manage fifteen push-ups.

    Anyway, since I first posted in this thread almost three years ago I haven't yet accomplished a split, or a handstand. But I have achieved some yoga poses I never thought I would and learned how to kick my legs pretty high!

    I'm actively working on the splits again.

    Re: can you do...

    I know it's pathetic. But if I push myself harder, I know I can learn to do better. It'd been a while since I tested, and I managed 25 today. I'll get there!

    I have a MP3 file of my orchestra playing the Peterloo Overture...

    I've only had my viola for about a year and a half, I only started lessons in September, but I've only had about 6 as I rarely see my teacher, so I played it a whole year in an orchestra and a strings group before actually having any lessons. I played at Birmingham Symphony Hall before having a viola lesson.

    My main instrument is the violin, I've played since I was 5... so I'm in in my 13th year of playing. My boyfriend bought me a ukulele for Christmas, but I've only taught myself the In The Night Garden theme and Jason Mraz I'm Yours.
