  • Yoga Slackers,
  • Partner Acrobatics and
  • more than ten years of acrobatics training within European acrobatics.

We will cover:-

  • the art of spotting;
  • smart partner training progressions;
  • the skills and principles to inversions;
  • the nuances to partner balances, how to be precise and be challenged;
  • how to train AcroYoga with longevity with self-care and massage, make it a marathon, not a sprint;
  • how to collaborate with creativity and believe in your potential. 

Who is this for? 

  • If you have a regular AcroYoga practice in excess of six months.
  • Able to base or fly shoulder stand of feet/star without the aid of a spotter, able to base or fly foot to hand with or without a spotter & working on handstands

Saturday 9th February 2019 10am – 5pm:  Foundation & Calibration 

Our intention is to get the fundamentals down, with the basic building blocks comes fantastic structures.  We cover a spectrum of drills getting you into your acrobatic body; thereafter working in groups.  We will cover the art of spotting to aid and or support a balance between a base and flyer. 

We will refine the principles of handstands, hand to hand, reverse hand to hand and all the main acro inversions along with other static balances moving from there to the shifting and receiving of weight with transitions. The day will end with time for self-care and massage.

Sunday 10th February 2019 10am – 5pm: Creativity & Collaboration

Once warmed up we recap on the principles of the previous day and move the room into creativity and expression.  We will look at the value of solo movement from yoga and dance and the ability to listen and feel what feels good your own body.  Thereafter we want to explore the listing qualities when collaborating with others.   

We would like to share a creative flow and get the room to find their own creations that enable participants to bring together the principles shared from the weekend.  Again we do not leave the day without taking time for self-care and massage.

Delving into Partner Practice at Yotopia

Two’s Company – Delving into a Partner Practice 

 

When:  Sunday 11th November 2018, 2.30pm – 5.30pm

Where:  Yotopia, 13 Mercer Street, London WC2H 9QH. Tel: 0333 405 8888

Cost: £35 please click here for bookings

Counterbalances are when weight is used as a lever to reduce the effort of lifting loads, thereby enabling the balance of another weight.  We will look at how this can be applied to individuals working together as a pair and what potential balances can be created.

We will up look into the push-pull nuances of balance; the engagement and release that allows stability in both symmetrical and asymmetric structures and how to safely build interesting shapes and poses.  Explore the wonders of human counterbalances, delve into your creative potential. 

A regular body awareness practice would be a good advantage.  Come or your own or as a pair; we will get to mix and match with everyone in the room.

If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far go together (African Proverb).
