About Acroyoga:

Acroyoga is a practice that combines many elements- yoga, partner balancing, circus acrobatics, creative movement, therapeutic movement, and isometric strength building. Acroyoga will challenge your body, build trust and community, and confront fear in an accessible way. You do not have to be super strong to have fun with acroyoga…and you won’t even notice how hard you’re working as we play.

We will focus on 3 primary areas:
* Safe Spotting: How to keep yourself and your partners safe. This is the most important skill you will learn in Acroyoga.
* Technique: Underlying principles that will allow you to do things you might never have thought possible.
* Communication: Nothing can happen without strong communication in Acroyoga. We will break down common names and key words in Acroyoga, provide a very brief history of where it all comes from, and discuss how to speak to each other respectfully in precarious situations, so we can all stay friends.

It is beneficial if you are able to:
Plank Pose (push up position) 15-20 second hold
Uttanasana (forward fold, able to reach toes with straight legs)
Bridge pose or backbend
Headstand or other inversion

Workshop Descriptions

Acroyoga Fundamentals: This fundamentals workshop is specifically for beginners to learn the primary acroyoga building blocks in a supportive environment. More experienced acroyogis are welcome to take the course as well, to refresh your foundational skills, or to practice foundational skills in a role that is new to you (bases, come fly. Flyers, come base!) No partner is necessary to participate in this workshop.

Family Acroyoga: Practice acroyoga with your kids! We’ve all done airplane with little ones, and we know how much fun it is to swing them around in circles. Learn how to build an acroyoga practice with your kids that reduces stress and builds communication and trust.

Acroyoga for Kids: Beginning circus, yoga, and partner balancing skills for kids age 8+. We’ll play movement and theater games, do yoga, and learn some partner balancing tricks that kids can do with each other.

Trios and Getting High: A look at more traditional acrobalance and acrobatic skills from an acroyoga perspective. Learn fun and challenging moves that require momentum, multiple bases or flyers, standing, jumping, and kneeling. It is best to have some experience and body awareness to take this workshop.

Back to the Lab: Intermediate acroyoga transitions, washing machines, and extensive creative process drills and theater games to get you into your creative body and out of your routine. Should have approx 6 months acroyoga experience or other acro/balance/movement background.

Suggested Pre-reqs
Star/shoulderstand
Foot to Hand (low or high)
Handstand (30 sec, wall ok)
Yoga experience of some kind
