A first for Casina Settarte, we have the pleasure of the offering to you an AcroYoga Debut.
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!
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.
Please note participants will be required to arrive on the 20th June and depart first thing on the 26th June.
