Aerial Yoga / Capucine Redon / Mar 23 & 24

Posted on

Hello folks! We have a great aerial yoga teacher, Acharya Suresh, who has been teaching regularly with us for a few months. His old partner and collaborator, with whom he evolved the Vayu Yoga style, which has its own tenets and principles, and is an offshoot or dialect of aerial yoga, Capucine Redon, is in Delhi, so we thought we’d run a workshop to host her, and expose our students and newcomers to another strong teacher! Read on below for details. ABOUT THE WORKSHOP Spread out over two days, two x two hours sessions, this workshop will be an excellent introduction to the use of the hammock apparatus to achieve much deeper, stronger and more active postures based on Yoga. Here’s a little about Vayu: […]

AcroYoga classes have started!

Posted on

There were so many palpable moments of magic teaching acroyoga formally for the first time! Very different being in front of a group vs the informality of jams and 1:1. Certainly a lot easier when you can focus on one person, vs groups which are off doing their own thing! Major new teaching lesson – teaching spotting is the hardest part! Our first group of students were incredible, and working with the irrepressible and wonderfully warm and capable Mansi Mahajan was just a joy! A very positive experience to be able to pass on glimmers of acro, see acro magic and connection happen. And just the beauty of clean lines, stability, ease and comfort. Absolute acro play and what makes acroyoga such an addictive and constructive practice. […]

Aerial Silks, Hoop, Rope & Trapeze with Shweta

Posted on

Photo credit the wonderful Devika Swarup! Shot a few years back, but as beautiful as ever. Shweta is one of our old friends and teachers, and is back in Delhi for almost a month, so we’re doing an intensive with her. To suit her quirky and original style of performance, she wanted us to expose both kids and adults to the many forms of expression possible via aerial apparatuses, so that’s precisely what we’re doing! She is a unique artist in her versatility, and comfort with several different apparatuses. Multiple apparatuses (silks, hoop, rope and trapeze), plus different styles and emotions, forms of expression. Not to mention the general physical intensity and difficulty of aerial practices. So a lot of emphasis on conditioning and posture. […]

Ashtanga Vinyasa with Himanshi

Posted on

In this workshop we will work on the principles of ashtanga vinyasa and hatha, on strength, flexibility and stability along with fluid movements through various asanas. The focus will be on understanding the reasons behind doing asana practice, alignment of the body and the benefits of those for our body. The workshop is suitable for beginners interested in the vigorous and demanding Ashtanga Vinyasa style of yoga created by K Pattabhi Jois. This workshop is a suitable preparatory introduction to the Ashtanga primary series. If we have a good group of students for it, we’d like to start regular classes towards teaching the Ashtanga primary series! ABOUT HIMANSHI Himanshi Karol has been practicing yoga for 15 years. She is a certified yoga teacher (Mysore style […]

Intro to AcroYoga / Mansi and Anuraag / Lodi

Posted on

Please join Mansi and Anuraag for a two day introduction to the acrobatic and yogic practice which is AcroYoga! Acro (short form) combines yoga, acrobatics and therapeutics in a unique and addictive blend which lends itself to individualised practice, constant challenge, and the development of partnership skills. Acro can be flowy and elegant, a great way to frame and motivate physical skills and focus, a creative and collaborative exercise, and a way to connect meaningfully with others. We will cover elements of the practice in these two days to give you a feel for how acro works, so you can decide if it’s suitable for you to get deeper into the practice. These elements are: Developing shared balance and calibrated trust Understanding the basic roles […]

His unique style is called Vayu Yoga, and we’ve just posted about it here: delhirock.com/vayu/ The class will be intense, difficult and transformative. Starting this Saturday, the 17th.

Solar Immersion / Goa / Pascal Weis & Chris Loebsack

Posted on

Hi guys! Doing a courtesy post for acroyoga.org on our group, to let you know about this incredible opportunity.   Solar immersions are difficult, and have serious prerequisites, but if you’ve been wanting to get into acroyoga, and are willing to commit the time and resources for this immersion, plus three solid months of prep, then read on!   We’ve been given an incredible discount, to help encourage acro in India, which runs to about $355 (~26,000 rs), which is a huge 20% off the lowest published early bird rate.   Solar immersions are rare, and only taught by 20 teachers out of the global community of about 1500 teachers, so they never go for prices like these – plus this is likely to be […]

A Few Updates!

Posted on

Hi everybody! A few updates on things we’ve changed recently, and wanted to share with you. Not the most exciting update, but an important part of what we do!   So, we’ve made it easier for family members and friends to share passes.   Parents can now climb along with their children in the kids classes if they’d like to get their climbing in; we’re just asking that they take a couple of sessions of 101 so that they’re primed to climb. Parents can share passes with their kids as well.   Friends can share passes on the weekends, so for example if you’re already a climber at DR, and want to bring a friend or two in, you’re most welcome to, they won’t have […]

Aerial Hoop with Aashna

Posted on

The aerial lyra/hoop is a dynamic apparatus, a circular steel ring that provides a frame for acrobatic moves. It is a great platform for fluid movements, transitions and sequences, especially when spinning! As with any aerial skill, aerial hoop requires a balance of strength, stamina and flexibility, something which you will progressively work on during the class. Aerial hoop helps in honing upper body muscle groups and your core strength, improving your range of motion and active flexibility. Aashna Mansharamani is an aerialist from Mumbai visiting us for nine days, the 20th to the 28th of October. She’ll be running three classes with us on aerial lyra/hoop: 1) Aerial hoop for adults A 1.5 hour class to work out the core and stretch out every […]
