Don't know how much it'll help, but when I started doing grabs in tramp training it was pretty comical the first couple of tries. Came damned close to landing on my head. Maybe 5 minutes of trying to grab the soles of my feet and it started to come together. If you can get onto a trampoline for a couple of minutes it might be enough to figure out the balance.
