Introduction to AcroYoga
11th February, 10.00 – 1.00pm
Sheffield Yoga School, S6 3TA
Introduction to Acroyoga
This 3 hour workshop will take you through the fundamentals of acroyoga, including ‘flying’, ‘basing’ and ‘spotting’.
No experience is necessary.
One aim of the workshop is to get people moving in unusual and interesting ways, providing both a mental and physical challenge.
Acroyoga combines acrobatics with elements of yoga. It is a sociable and fun way of building strength, flexibility and confidence.
One of the main aims of Acroyoga is to bring people together, forming real human connections and helping the individual to cultivate trust, self awareness and open communication.
In this workshop we move through a series of postures and flows which progress as we go. You will learn how to safely base, fly and spot for simple acroyoga moves such as front bird, back bird, siting, throne, and stag.
