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.

‘You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.’ Plato
