When:

This workshop is aimed at encouraging playful connections, exploring our acrobatic potential through inversions and L basing partner acrobatics. A change to revisit the basics and get back into your practice.

This workshop is for: –

  • people who are new to acroyoga solar;
  • those who have not done L Basing partner acrobatics in a while; and
  • those are feeling rusty and would like a steer back into their acro practice.

We will touch on the different aspects of this solar practice, ranging from acro conditioning,  partner-assisted inversions, acrobatic balancing and L Basing sequences. Each workshop will be different but the themes will remain the same.

You can come on your own, bring a friend or partner.

Safety is still a priority and despite the encouraging signs of decreasing Covid cases and hospitalisations, the pandemic is still morphing and around us.  For this reason, we are requesting that EVERY PARTICIPANT be required to conduct a lateral flow test and present a -ve test result within 24 hours of attending our workshop.

We are aware that the science and guidance on this is constantly changing as we transition to a new normal with Covid. But at this stage, we still feel it’s important to know that you are safe and keeping others safe too. 

Failure to conduct a Covid test of any kind will mean you will not be able to participate in this workshop. 

We will be encouraging group mixing and contact.  You are welcome to participate with your mask on or off and we will be encouraging judicious use of hand sanitiser and maybe being a hand towel in case you get hot and sweaty.
