Acro Yoga Workshop
It is time to reconnect and to play: Welcome to our open level Acro Yoga Workshop!
Acro Yoga emerged from the fusion of Western acrobatics, yoga and Thai massage. It combines strengthening solar elements with relaxing lunar elements such as therapeutic flying and Thai massage. In the workshop, we will work together on different positions (base, flyer, spotter) and techniques of Acro Yoga. We will do preliminary exercises on coordination, body tension and balance to build up trust and to strengthen the connectivity in our group. Then we will move to smaller groups, in which we will explore different figures and flows. These include the Flyer, the Shoulder Stand, the Folded Leaf, the Throne … and many more! We will round off the workshop with stretching exercises together. Afterwards you can jam freely and put into practice what you have learned… Let’s fly together! =)
Water, comfortable not too loose clothing, yoga mat (cloth on grass if necessary).
You should not be afraid of physical contact; yoga experience is an advantage, but not a condition for participation; you do not need to come with a partner, as we work dynamically as a group.
