AcroYoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community. AcroYoga has 3 main elements.
practices that cultivate trust, empowerment and joy. Trust is the currency that we exchange in acrobatics. With this blanket of trust we become empowered and empower others. The Solar Acrobatic Practices are the tools to unlock that power in others and ourselves. The solar elements are strength building, inversions with spotting, and partner acrobatics.
Lunar Healing Arts
practices that cultivate listening, loving and letting go. The first steps in the practice of AcroYoga are listening and relearning to be open. The Lunar Therapeutic Practice includes massage, therapeutic flying and partner yoga. The aim in these practices, is that both the giver and receiver can feel more full and balanced. Our main tools are gravity, sensitivity, loving kindness, feeling and releasing.
that cultivate breathe awareness, life balance and connection. Yoga is the glue between the Solar and the Lunar Practices. It is a Physical Practice as well as a life philosophy that is honed through postures, breathing exercises, mantras etc.
