What is AcroYoga?

AcroYoga is a beautiful practice that combines the dynamic wisdom of acrobatics, the awareness, breath and balance of yoga and the healing, loving nature of Thai massage. Working with one or more partners these three disciplines are fused into captivating sequences of inversions, flows and balances.

AcroYoga has 3 main elements:

  • Solar Acrobatic Practices that cultivate trust, empowerment, determination and joy.
  • Lunar Healing Arts Practices that cultivate listening, loving and letting go.
  • Yogic Practices that cultivate breathe awareness, life balance and connection.

AcroYoga is an exhilarating and open ended practice. It leads towards hard to achieve asana positions such as scorpion, headstands and handstands. It deepens backbends, lengthens hamstrings and opens hips, as well as an endless array of flying positions that no-one has thought of a name for yet.

Benefits of AcroYoga

Apart from happiness other qualities that you can expect to develop from the AcroYoga practice are confidence, sensitivity, trust, poise, Metta, determination, a sense of community as well as physical attributes like upper body strength, core ability, suppleness and grace. These qualities can be taken into your daily life and, in your own little way, you can contribute, in a very real way, to helping the world be a better place.

Oh, and by the way, happy people don’t start wars.
