ACROYOGA FUNDAMENTALS WORKSHOPS

Date & Time
New dates will be published soon
Content AcroYoga combines yoga, Thai massage, and acrobatics. They merge into a unique practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness. We typically work in groups of three where one person is the base, one person is the flyer – performing yoga poses on top of the base’s legs –  and one person is the spotter, providing safety and support to both the base and the flyer. Through practicing AcroYoga, we experience a deepening trust in ourselves and others, and realize that by working in partnership, we manifest more than we ever could alone. No prior experience or partner needed – just come and play! Ideally, you have approx. 3 months of total experience in “regular” yoga classes.
