DEC_logo_mainEvent: 108 Sun Salutations.

Date: 12th January 2014

Location: Kensington Unitarians, Essex Church, 112 Palace Gardens Terrace, LondonW8 4RT

The idea is to do 108 sun salutations to mark the end of 2013 and bring in 2014.  It is also an opportunity to raise funds in supporting the people of  The Philippines who have suffered from the recent typhoon Haiyan.

If you are interested participating please email me jaquiwan@gmail.com. I will invite you onto the Virgin Giving Money donations site which is linked in full below.



We are also calling all London based yoga teachers who are interested in leading 9-12 sun salutations, again email me and let me know.

OK, lets get this show on the road and demonstrate how we can work together in support in solidarity.

Any other suggestions of help would be appreciated.

AcroYoga brings together the ancient disciplines of yoga, healing arts and acrobatics into the one umbrella practice. We are offering you a five day debut into this wide ranging and abundantly creative practice.

We will explore the themes of trust, connection & playfulness through: –

  • partner stretching,
  • assisted inversions,
  • basic partner acrobatics,
  • therapeutic flying, and
  • the principles of Thai massage.

This five day debut is aimed as an immersed introduction into the practice of AcroYoga.

No experience or no partner necessary, you will be supported! Do come with an open mind & a willingness to have fun!

The days will be broken down into two parts

AcroYoga fundamentals / technique / conditioning / balancing – morning practice

Tap into your source of strength, flexibility and creative will. We will explore the qualities of acrobatics beginning with conditioning & strength exercises working on the embodiment of inversions, headstands, forearm balances and handstands. We will work progressively in small groups on static balances to sequences; involving a base, flyer and spotter with some focus on transitions. We require you have willingness to explore your fearless inner child.

AcroYoga therapeutics / healing touch / therapeutic flying from afternoon / evening practice

This aims to be a bodywork extravaganza. We will introduce you to the art of healing touch and work with ‘Metta’ loving kindness a real treat for our often tired and over worked bodies. We will practice the principles of mutual support, giving and receiving and introduce you to a blend of Thai massage sequences and therapeutic flying flows blended with massage. Come with an open heart!

Participant recommendations
We recommend all participants have some regular form of yoga asana or physical body practice, are comfortable with inversions (assisted headstands or handstands against a wall) and are prepared to work with a partner or in small groups.
