The majority of our physical time is spent upright or horizontal, rarely do we spend our days inverted, UPSIDE DOWN.

Yet, there are many listed health benefits to inversions these include the: –

  • cardiovascular,
  • lymphatic,
  • endocrine and
  • nervous systems to name a few. 

Not only are there health benefits, but it can also be a lot of fun to disorientate your perspective of the world and seeing it from the ground up.

Students will learn: –

  • the alignment techniques and strength elements that provide tools for the understanding and embodiment of inversions; and
  • support their partner as spotter and coach.

We will focus on all manor of inversions from the simple; the forward bend, downward facing dog to the more complex forearm balances, headstand and handstands.

Its time challenge yourself and bring back your youthful fearlessness, what better way to do this than being inverted?

Some yoga or body practice would be an advantage.  We will build it up progressively working on upper body strength, core conditioning and wrist awareness. Be prepared to work in pairs or in small groups.

  • yoga asana, partner conditioning,
  • that never ending work in progress the handstand,
  • L basing acro calibration in particular:- 
    • perfecting the points of contact (hand and feet placements, bone stacking) that will enable longevity in your practice,

AcroYoga Lunar Day – Sunday 22nd October 2017

Your Sunday chill day into Thai & Fly – open to all levels

Take in a deep breath and sigh out the stresses and strains that hold you. Take this day reconnect, to release, to ground, to accept and witness.

The morning will consist of: -

  • an asana practice to prepare your physical and mental body to give and receive
  • elements of Thai massage to explore energetic flow and blockages in the body; and
  • work with the breath, gravity, body weight, touch and vibrations to release and unblock.

In the afternoon we will introduce flying therapeutics, involving a base and flyer. The base grounds and suspends the flyer with their hands and feet.  The passive nature of the flyer enables the base to sculpt the flyer into a variety of shapes that stretch and opens the flyer’s upper body, enabling the potential release of tension and muscular holding patterns.

An opportunity to connect, to listen and be present in a supportive and collective way.  Be prepared for the cuddle puddles.
