New to Acroyoga? Come learn the foundations and principals of partner balance/counterbalances, bone stacking, spatial intelligence, and play! ACROYOGA is a celebration in fusion of traditional yoga with innovation in contemporary movements wherein we experience divine harmony through presence and balance with another. In a safe and nurturing environment, through partnering, we cultivate trust, loving kindness, and playfulness through asana, conditioning/core strengthening, partner stretches, balances, inversions, therapeutic basing/flying/spotting, and Thai massage elements to open joints and lengthen muscles. Bringing a partner is unnecessary but welcome; there will be plenty of people to play with!
SlackroYoga Vinyasa for Athletes (Acrobatic Yoga Flow)
Join me for this dynamic redefinition of balance, spatial intelligence, and precision. Smooth your transitions and flow between static poses and rapid ranges of motion. Connect with your breath to use it as a force of power, focus and timing. We’ll warm up with partner stretches and continue solo style through vigorous rolling vinyasas, balances and inversions to help you break barriers in your yoga and athletic practices. This blend of traditional Yoga, Slackro (acrobatics for slackliners), AcroYoga Mtl. and Tai Chi elements will enhance your athletic performance. You are going to have fun, and you will most likely sweat. Fuel up earlier and be ready to roll. We’ll have some informal play time after for socializing and Q&A.
