Saturday 14th March 2020 – Exploring the fundamentals

This day will focus on the foundations of AcroYoga.  We will cover the basics and the building blocks that can create fantastic human structures.  We will present a spectrum of drills to get you into your acrobatic body and thereafter move onto calibrations by working in groups.  We will refine the principles of handstands and partner inversions and thereafter move into a variety of static balance to transitions, exploring basic sequences and flows.

There are no prerequisites in attending Saturday only.

The latter half of the day will be allocated to self-care combining Thai massage, leg love and flying therapeutics.

 

Sunday 15th March 2020 – Calibration through collaboration

Once warmed up we will recap on the principles of the previous day we will cover the nuances of both calibration and collaboration through the process of a progressive range of motion and points of contact. Thereafter we will present partner transitions and flows, moving onto washing machines and repeatable sequences.  We will again allocate time later in the day for self-care and massage.

Prerequisites for attending Sunday only: to be able to base and fly Star / Shoulder-stand of feet, without the active use of a spotter.

Counter Balances & Trio Tricks at Yotopia

Counter Balances & Trio Tricks at Yotopia

 

When: Sunday 2nd June 2019, 2.30pm – 5.30pm

Where: Yotopia, 13 Mercer Street, London WC2H 9QJ

Cost: £35 Bookings are made directly with the studio more information to follow or email info@yotopia.co.uk

AcroYoga aims to encourage you to move, connect and play.  This is a solar offering that delves into the fire of acrobatics.  Once we have got you comfortable in your personal body awareness and engaged in your acrobatic bodies we will focus on two themes counterbalances and trio tricks.

 

Counterbalances explore the push-pull nuances of partner balancing; the engagement and mutual calibration that allows the creation of symmetrical and asymmetric structures, shapes and poses.

Trio tricks explore the creative refinements of working as a group.  There is an added dimension to working as a three; the ability to listen and absorb in order to collaborate are some of the key qualities to successful trio balancing.

Come with an open mind and willingness to play.  No partner needed.  You will learn how to build progressively and be supported in the process.
