Acrobatic Yoga - Saturday 1pm Hillside - Sunday 1pm Hillside


Acrobatic Yoga focuses on partner acrobatics that mostly utilize the feet. Our style of Acrobatic Yoga blends yoga, gymnastics, various styles of dance, Acrobalance, Adagio Balance and Icarian Games. This contemporary sport is very accessible and accommodates many body types. Acrobatic Yoga highlights the strength, coordination, balance, flexibility, and range of motion that the human body can attain. Partnering can occur in same sex and/or coed base and flyer roles.
New participants are quickly inspired to create new sequences and moves. Beginners and experienced athletes alike observe positive results rapidly, making this sport very satisfying, and leaving participants hungry for more. A yoga mat and or towel is needed for this workshop.
