Special Workshop: Intro to ACROVINYASA with YogaBeyond®
Sat, 24 Jun 2017, 12:00 PM – Sun, 25 Jun 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
This 10-hour intensive introduces ACROVINYASA, which takes yoga from earth to air. Uniting elements of vinyasa, acroyoga and inversion training, this practice cultivates trust and community in a powerful way. Focused on synchronizing breath in movement, building strength and finding balance. Inspired by traditional yoga asanas and L-based acrobatic flying, this progressive yoga system includes both solo and partner practice. The aerial part revolves around one partner (the base) supporting the other (the flyer) in flying through the air in a sequenced series of yoga postures.
This workshop is suitable for both beginning and advanced yoga students, as well as teachers, teachers in training, and the mindful community at large. Attendees should have some familiarity with yoga practice, and a willingness to try something new!
You will gain:
- Better communication skills
- The ability to support others and to trust more deeply
- Clear techniques for taking your yoga practice to new heights
- Effective techniques for spotting a partner into inversions
Note: this workshop will take place over the course of two days for a total of 10 hours: June 24-25, 12pm-5pm.
