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.

This workshop will introduce you to Thai massage techniques; the use of gravity, body weight, touch and harmonics to realign and release.  We will cover the foundations to flying therapeutics involving a base and flyer; the base embodies a solid structure for the flyer to experience inverted aerial passive balances that are blended with therapeutic massage techniques.

Open to all and especially those interested in massage or other forms of bodywork.  You will be working in pairs or in small groups.

Massage is not just a luxury its a way to a happier and healthier life.
