The first suggestion would be to get her into a beginners gymnastics class after school, if that isn't an option here is a great website that has tons of info. Roger Harrell is the man behind the website and he is part of the xFit community.

This page takes you right to the floor exercises and you can click on cartwheel or handstand.

Jim Bathurst from Beast Skills was in the latest Performance Menu and he has a great tutorial about headstands and handstands.

Ido was supposed to do a Capoeira cartwheel progression for us...I like that style of cartwheel as variety and an alternative to the gymnastics style...keep your eyes peeled for that in an upcoming PM.

yes, but i have a feeling that if you twist Ido's arm, he'll kick you in the face.
