AcroYoga Lunar Day 0517
We will begin the day with AcroYoga Lunar asana to tune to our own bodies. There after we will delve into elements of Thai massage in a supine, prone and or seated sequence. We will explore the flow of energy in the body, where it maybe blocked, and how to use the breath, gravity, body weight, touch and vibrations to release, unblock and create free flow.

We will introduce the art of suspended therapeutics, involving a base and flyer. The base grounds and suspends the flyer with their hands and feet to create the potential to release tension and muscular holding patterns. The passive nature of the flyer enables the base to sculpt the flyer into a variety of shapes that stretches and opens the flyers upper body.

Exploring Inversions: Sunday 9th April 2017, 1-4.30pm

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.
