This morning workshop will explore the world of being upside down, it will include the art of solo inversion like handstands as well as partner inversions.

Students will learn: –

  • the alignment techniques and strength elements to embody of inversions;
  • how to calibrate with colleagues; and
  • to acquire the techniques of spotting and coach inversions.

We will go through the AcroYoga Solar Asana to prepare the body for inversions. The sequence includes a range from the simple forward bend and downward-facing dog through to the more complex forearm balances, headstand and handstands.

Thereafter, we will explore inversions both with and on another person. This will include the push-pull nuances of partner balancing and the calibrations that allows the creation of symmetrical and asymmetric shapes and poses.

AcroYoga Solar Pre-Reqs workshop.

  • the principles of L basing balances, range of motion and points of contact;
  • L basing transitions and symmetrical and asymmetrical sequences & washing machines; and
  • the nuances of ‘foot to hand’ and ‘hand to hand’ connections.

Solar Day – L basing to Standing Flows

A full day to embodying the acrobat a chance to believe in the possible. 

The morning will review and revisit that includes:-

  • strength elements and partner conditioning,
  • that never-ending work in progress of handstands,
  • L basing calibrations in particular:-
    • perfecting balance through the points of contact (hand and feet placements, bone stacking) and range of motion,
    • old school transitions that are the foundations to fluid movement.

The afternoon we get creative and go with the flow. We will present more challenging sequences that include both L basing and standing balances. We will work progressively and give individual group attention offering tasks and exercises that will challenge all levels of experience.

We will end the day with much-needed therapeutics that aid longevity in your practice.

An opportunity to evolve your acrobatic skills for our forthcoming five day AcroYoga Solar Immersion in March 2020.

Counterbalances are when weight is used as a lever to reduce the effort of lifting loads, thereby enabling the balance of another weight.  We will look at how this can be applied to individuals working together as a pair and what potential balances can be created.

We will up look into the push-pull nuances of balance; the engagement and release that allows stability in both symmetrical and asymmetric structures and how to safely build interesting shapes and poses.  Explore the wonders of human counterbalances, delve into your creative potential. 

A regular body awareness practice would be a good advantage.  Come or your own or as a pair; we will get to mix and match with everyone in the room.

If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far go together (African Proverb).
