What is this invert method called?

Above is a link - she does an invert after the handstand with a forearm-wrap-around grip. So I have two questions:

1) is there a name for this?
2) any prep ideas or tips for it? From what I've observed, it seems like this invert should be performed "sideways" (as in the video) - i.e. you tip sideways for the rotation to get hips above head, not backwards as with a basic invert (if that makes sense...?) Any other insight? I do find starting from the floor (on me knees) helps quite a bit.

I've heard it called "lever grip invert" and "funny grip invert". You can do it sideways or backwards. I've done it a few times into brass monkey, though it's not my fave entry.

Also the top hand can be in cup or true grip. :) I think that's about all my knowledge on the subject 😬

Here's an old video of me doing this from the ground if that helps. [www.studioveena.com]

Admittedly, I was hesitant to try this website at first because I questioned whether it could offer anything close to in studio pole instruction...but it is simply amazing. I cannot say enough good things about this website, these lessons, etc. <3
