    Accomplished Acro 4: Back Bird

    London Acro Ladies

    The next in our Accomplished Acro Yoga tutorial series, join London Acro Ladies for a deep supportive backbend. This pose is similar to Front Bird but in back bird the flyer faces the ceiling rather than the floor. This is a really nice antigravity backbend for the flyer and is a great opportunity for the base to build strength and refine alignment. For this pose, as with front bird, the spotter stands at the side of the flyer in goddess pose. One hand is positioned below the upper back and one below the thighs. It goes without saying that you must not attempt this until you have watched the introductory video outlining safety and spotting techniques and never try Acro Yoga in a confined area.

    Accomplished Acro 3: High Flying Whale To Throne

    London Acro Ladies

    This transition sees the flyer move from a backbend into a seated position on the bases feet. The flyer stands with their feet either side of the bases head facing away from them. The base takes the flyer's ankles and places their feet on the upper back. The flyer is lifted into the backbend and can relax the upper body but keeps the legs strong and toes pointed. From there the base takes the sole of the Flyers feet and transitions their feet one at a time underneath the flyers bum as the flyer sits up. The flyer can then hook their feet in front of the bases shins for stability. Spotters will start to the side in a goddess stance with one arm above and one below the flyers torso moving to a warrior one stance to the back as the flyer sits up. It goes without saying that you must not attempt this until you have watched the introductory video outlining safety and spotting techniques and never try Acro Yoga in a confined area.

    This is another inversion where the base is supine providing a platform for the flyer with the legs. The hips are lifted towards the sky, feet are hip width apart and the flyer places their shoulders on the bases thighs allowing their head to be in the gap between. From there the flyer can kick, press or be scissor lifted up into the inversion. Spotter will be in the spine side of the flyer with hands near the hips. It goes without saying that you must not attempt this until you have watched the introductory video outlining safety and spotting techniques and never try Acro Yoga in a confined area.

  • Accomplished Acro 1: Beach01:51
    Accomplished Acro 1: Beach

    London Acro Ladies

    Beach is a pose where the base is on all fours providing a stable platform for the flyer to invert on. The base's role is to stay still and strong so that the flyer can place one arm under their belly and the other along the bases arm. From there the flyer inverts and finds the balance using their arms for stability. Many options will be shown for this and we highly recommend the use of a spotter who will be on the spine side of the flyer with hands near the hips. The spotter can also help scissor lift the flyer up into the inversion and walk around to the back once they are up to spot. It goes without saying that you must not attempt this until you have watched the introductory video outlining safety and spotting techniques and never try Acro Yoga in a confined area. The flyer should have a free standing handstand before trying this pose.

    Acroyoga is a combination of yoga, acrobatics, and Thai massage. In this practise there is a base who is the person providing the foundation of the pose, there is the flyer who is the person creating a shape on the platform provided by the base and there is a spotter who's role is to ensure that both the flyer and the base are safe and to catch any falls that may occur. The more acrobatic side of Acro yoga is the solar element which will invoke more strength and active participation from the flyer. The lunar element is where we find the therapeutic flying and Thai massage which involves the flyer being completely passive and enjoying the ride! Acroyoga is a super fun way to connect and play with others. Be prepared to laugh a lot and have high levels of fun!
