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 of flyer, base and spotter
- Foundational poses and grips, postures
- Inversions, with planned spotting
- Working on underlying strength, motor skills and awareness
The workshop is spread over two days; the first day we’ll introduce you to shared balance, the three roles of flyer, base and spotter in acro, and conditioning and calibration skills.
Day two, we’ll push you a little more with basic inversions with a crucial emphasis on spotting and self-assessment, so you get a little more of the energy and excitement of the practice, and also trust and teamwork.
