Welcome to a one day possibility to expand your practice and experience!
Dive deep during a delicious weekend and experience the magical and joyful blending of yoga, acrobatics and healing arts.
In a safe and warm environment you can expand your limits and grow beyond what you have thought is possible.
Most of the Workshop time we will focus on the acrobatic Solar Practice of AcroYoga:
With fiery and playful Warm Ups we are preparing our bodies to get into the practice of Inversions and acrobatic Flying.
We will enter the magic land of Handstands and fly through different acrobatic universes like spinning, popping and special inversions.
Foundations of body mechanics, inversion and counterbalances will guide us through this session. We are playing with weight distribution, quality of movement, alignments and bone stacking as well as with the idea of flow, simplicity and ease.
In the end of this day we are landing with the exploration of the healing practices of Thai Yoga Massage and Therapeutic Flying.
We develop a feeling for fundamental principles of self-connection, touch, listening and letting go. Later we bring this experience in the air and connect again to this principles while supporting and being supported through Therapeutic Flying.
It’s not required to bring a partner.
Level: Its recommended to have basic experience of AcroYoga: you should know how either fly or base Bird, Star, Throne, Backbird, Shoulderstand, Cartwheel.
If in doubt, please contact us.
Session 1: 11:00 – 13:30 / Beginners & Intermediate Level
Washing-machines – Break them down to build them up
Washing machines in acrobatics are sequences that starts and ends with the same pose. Therefore we can just keep them spinning. In this workshop we look at how washing machines are built up and how we can learn them in an efficient way. Even if you are quite new to acroyoga you can still attend and will have plenty of success stories to take home. Good energy, lots of fun and quite some bodywork is promised!
Session 2: 15:00 – 17:30 / Intermediate & Advanced Level
Intermediate/Advance: How to fly and base with elegance
In this workshop we will step up the difficulties a little bit, adding more technical aspects and challenges. Working with things like tempo, preciseness and and grace we will learn how to not only do washing machines but how to make them flow efficiently and beautifully.
