Hey y’all! We’re teaching Beginners Acroyoga twice a week! There will be games, there will be fun, and we’ll provide a safe welcoming environment to learn the basics, refine your skills, make some new friends, and have a great time.

WHAT IS ACROYOGA?

Acroyoga is a form of partner yoga made more playful by the influence of acrobatics. Practicing Acroyoga involves finding static poses and moving through flows with a Base, a Flyer, and most importantly, a Spotter. The Base elevates the Flyer off the ground in these poses, and the Spotter keeps everybody safe and in proper alignment. Acroyoga is immensely fun and guided almost entirely by a spirit of playfulness and community.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS CLASS?

Everyone is welcome and we invite you to take this class especially if you have never done Acroyoga (or any other form of yoga) before! We want to give you the foundations of Acroyoga and set you up for safe, fun, lasting play. If you can’t touch your toes, feel intimidated by flashy Instagram posts, or think “I could never do that”, then this class is tailor-made just for you. We make it safe and easy.

DO I NEED TO BRING A PARTNER

No, you don’t need to bring a partner as you’ll be working with others in the class to develop skills basing, flying, and spotting with a variety of people. Also, this makes it easier to meet other acroyogis! Note that if you bring a partner and want to work with them the entire class, that’s okay too!

WHAT IF I DON’T WANT TO DO SOMETHING

This is a very fun, friendly class and you don’t need to do anything you don’t want to do. It’s okay to ask for an easier move, it’s okay to take a break and sit out for a while and just watch, and it’s okay to only practice some of the roles (base, flyer, spotter). A huge part of acroyoga is communication, and practicing that with partners and classmates in the moment will actually accelerate your skill development.

DO I NEED EXPERIENCE? WHAT IF I’M NOT FLEXIBLE/STRONG/ATHLETIC

You don’t need any experience. We have taught many absolute beginners and they were amazed at what they could do. Wherever your starting point is, we will meet you there and teach you the foundations.

WHAT DO I WEAR AND BRING?

Wear clothing that you feel comfortable moving in, bring a water bottle to keep you hydrated, and bring a yoga mat if you have one.

WHEN AND WHERE IS IT?

We'll be outside at Trout Lake Park in the northwest corner of the field by the parking lot.

Most classes have an optional 30 minute supervised jam (open-gym time) after where you can practice and get one on one coaching from us on what you learned in the class or any skills you're working on.

WHAT DOES IT COST AND HOW DO I SIGN UP?

It's free! After endless months of covid, we want to jumpstart the acro community so we'll be offering free classes until September 1, 2021. Register online at acrowest.com and come fly with us!
