AcroYoga

 What I love most about Acro Yoga is that you cannot do it by yourself. You need to work with someone. This stands completely opposite to the practice of yoga, where it’s all about you. The thing is that you only really get to experience yourself through others – especially when things don’t go as planned. This is quite uncommon in yoga but very common in Acro Yoga. 

 This page is dedicated to help you better understand what AcroYoga is and where you can start your journey.

Experienced AcroYogi?

You have already mastered the basics but now you are not sure where to go next?

You want to learn the cool washing machines? 

You want to get into H2H basing? 

Standing acrobatics? 

Then you should try our AcroYoga retreats. That’s where you can really up your skills. 

Roles in AcroYoga

It takes two to tango, but three to acro!
01.
The base

The base person is the one on the ground, who is lifting the flyer. Qualities of a good base are: predictability, slow movements, firm foundation

 

02.
The flyer

The person who is “flying”, who is elevated off the ground. The person who receives the most attention, but also the person who takes the most risk. Qualities of a good flyer are: tight, predictable, active

03.
The spotter / coach

The spotter is the most important part in AcroYoga. The coach is responsible for safety but also to ensure communication works. His/ her/ their role is to support, to recommend and to make sure the flyer & base stay safe in case of falling.

Core elements of AcroYoga

Acro Yoga has three core elements. Sessions can focus on either one or a combination.

– Solar acrobatics
In this part of the practice we focus on powerful, energetic, dynamic exercises based on playfulness, strength, creativity, balance and fun. While in other elements the flyer can fully receive, in solar practice this person is active, too.

– Lunar acrobatics
Lunar parts of the session or whole lunar practices focus on therapeutical aspects. The lunar practices are very much influenced by Thai Massage. In lunar poses, the flyer usually learns to fully receive, to let go and relax.

– Yoga
Breathing, mindfulness and meditative exercises support your Acro Yoga practice. They are essential elements to cultivate trust, endurance and strength for yourself and with your partner.
