Counter Balances & Trio Tricks at Yotopia

Counter Balances & Trio Tricks at Yotopia

 

When: Sunday 2nd June 2019, 2.30pm – 5.30pm

Where: Yotopia, 13 Mercer Street, London WC2H 9QJ

Cost: £35 Bookings are made directly with the studio more information to follow or email info@yotopia.co.uk

AcroYoga aims to encourage you to move, connect and play.  This is a solar offering that delves into the fire of acrobatics.  Once we have got you comfortable in your personal body awareness and engaged in your acrobatic bodies we will focus on two themes counterbalances and trio tricks.

 

Counterbalances explore the push-pull nuances of partner balancing; the engagement and mutual calibration that allows the creation of symmetrical and asymmetric structures, shapes and poses.

Trio tricks explore the creative refinements of working as a group.  There is an added dimension to working as a three; the ability to listen and absorb in order to collaborate are some of the key qualities to successful trio balancing.

Come with an open mind and willingness to play.  No partner needed.  You will learn how to build progressively and be supported in the process.

Massage & Flying Therapeutics at Yotopia

Massage & Flying Therapeutics at Yotopia 

 

When: Sunday 7th April 2019, 2.30pm – 5.30pm 

Where: Yotopia, 13 Mercer Street, London WC2H 9QJ

Cost: £35 Bookings are made directly with the studio more information to follow or email info@yotopia.co.uk

We will explore the lunar side to AcroYoga, allowing us to slow down and cultivate listening and conscious touch.  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 that involves a base and flyer.  The base acts as a solid structure that enables the flyer to be suspended in an aerial inversion so that the base can work on the back and shoulders.

Open to all and especially those with an interest in massage techniques.  No partner necessary. You will be working in pairs or in groups of three.

An afternoon session to delve into the world of balancing on your hands.  Have you ever been baffled by arm balances?  Is it strength? Is it flexibility?  Or is it overcoming the fear?

We will cover the three classic inversions: –

  • Pincha Maryasana / forearm balances &
  • handstands.

But we will explore a range of arm balancing including: –

  • Tittibasana / firefly,
  • Parsva Bakasana / side crow and
  • Eka Pada Koudiyasana / split leg arm balance,
  • but there will be more to explore.

 

 

 

 

This workshop is ideal for those who are comfortable being upside down, with a regular yoga practice and who are keen to discover more about their hands and arm balancing potential. 

We will cover alignment techniques, strength elements, the embodiment of inversions and safely taking weight on your arms and hands. We will build it up progressively working on upper body stamina, core conditioning and wrist awareness.

Prerequisites: Should be able to do a headstand against a wall for 15 seconds.
