Reading AcroYoga Play Day Spring 2013

Add a bounce to your New Year with AcroYoga

When: Sunday 27th January 2013, 10-4.30pm

Where: Rivermead Leisure Complex, Richfield Avenue, Reading RG1 8EQ

Cost: £40 before 20th January or £50 after.

Tap into your light hearted self and your inner playful child. On the day you will discover the art of flying therapeutics at one en of the spectrum to your acrobatic genius and potential at the other. Don’t be put off by the word ‘acrobatics’ we will work progressively within the container of safety and joy. Come with an open mind and willingness to turn your world upside down.

We will explore therapeutic flying & Thai massage where you will explore your ability to be sensitive and receptive. Students will learn and practice honest, clear, compassionate communication to build the foundation of partnership. We will draw upon the natural forces of gravity and “metta” loving kindness to encourage the body to let go of fear and tension. The flow of basing and flying, giving and receiving, honouring and accepting, inhaling and exhaling will take both yogis into a new place of union and bliss. Some yoga experience recommended, no partner needed.

There is a proposed 1hr lunch break.

We will cover basic acrobatics and flying. Learn to flip, spin, drop back and float, all while suspended in the air with the support of a partner! Using time-tested acrobatic training techniques, students will learn how to combine basic flying positions with inversions to create dynamic flying flows. We will demonstrate techniques for bases, flyers and spotters that will keep the flying safe and supported. Come with a familiarity with handstands.

The day will be taught by Jaqui Wan.
