Acro Yoga › Acro Yoga Dance
Acro Yoga combines yoga, healing arts and acrobatics. It is physically demanding but you don’t need to be an advanced yogi to enjoy Acro. The key to Acro yoga is its focus on teamwork and trust. There are three roles: base, flyer and spotter. At least one person will be lifted into the air. It also draws on traditions such as circus arts, dance and cheerleading. It’s great fun and can help build stronger relationships, move the body with awareness and build strength. You can help build strength for Acro Yoga through practising vinyasa yoga, power yoga and Forrest inspired yoga.
Acro Yoga 6: Begin to Flow
Acro Yoga 5: Throne
The fifth in our Acro Yoga Series (yoga for two people). Pip and Eugene begin to demonstrate how to link postures together and introduce "Throne". Beautiful to watch and fun to try - make sure you are secure in all the other Acro Yoga classes so far and stay safe when you try this at home.
Acro Yoga 4: High Flying Whale
A therapeutic pose, which means that the flyer is relaxed and has the opportunity to completely relax whilst in the high flying whale pose. This pose needs even greater clarity and communication, so is brilliant for relationship-building. If you can find a ”˜spotter’, that will be really helpful for getting to know this pose
Acro Yoga 3: Straddle Throne
The third in our Acro Yoga Series (yoga for two people), Straddle Throne is a really fun and visual posture which when mastered opens up a lot of possibilities for other postures and being able to create flows. Please please please take your time with this one - be slow and gradual and above all stay safe. This is an advanced pose and a spotter (third person) is highly recommended in the early stages. It is also important to ensure that you are secure in Front Bird before progressing to Straddle Throne.
Acro Yoga 2: Front Bird
In the second of our Acro Yoga Series (yoga for two people), you learn the classic posture, the first one taught in Acro yoga, the 'Front Bird' and they also move on to what happens when the 'flyer' lets go. These are the Flyer and Base Range of Motion exercises. Remember that this is much more difficult than it looks, so go slowly and build up your strength and trust gently.
