    Sunday 10am -1pm: Expansion – stepping up to your potential
    Delving deeper into the principles of acrobatics, we will focus on alignment and strength as the building blocks to embodying inversions and acrobatic balancing.  We will create a safe container based on the spotting skills acquire and using these foundations and a smattering of games and group exercises we will progress from the basics to more complex partner acrobatics; cultivating trust and clear communication, whilst homing in on the roles of basing and flying.

    Building on the foundations of previous day, we will work on simple to complex flying transitions and washing machines with a focus on artistic expression and presentation.  Working in acrobatic trios, with clearly defined roles of being a base or flyer; the day will focus on the ability to work creativity, fluidly – with precision, compassionately, honestly and with mutual support to achieve the groups’ success through a variety of acrobatic skills, tricks and sequences.  You will be faced with challenges and fears,
    explore how you deal with them, tap into your inner strength, discover the potential of group support and learn the intrinsic value that safety is everyone’s priority.

    For intermediate and advanced acroyoga practitioners only.
