Acrovinyasa takes yoga from earth to air. This practice uniting elements of Vinyasa, Acro Yoga and inversion training, and cultivates trust and community in a powerful way.
The core of Acrovinyasa is focused on synchronizing breath in movement, building strength and finding balance. Inspired by traditional yoga ananas (postures) and L-based acrobatic flying, this progressive yoga system includes both solo and parter 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.
Bringing a refreshingly playful approach to an ancient tradition, Acrovinyasa feels more like a dance with gravity than physical exercise. Getting inverted with a partner is very empowering especially for people who may be fearful of supporting or being supported by others.
The necessary component for students learning the practice for the first time is the role of a spotter, who makes sure both base and flyer stay safe and properly aligned.
The base lies flat on their back supporting the flyer’s weight with extended legs and arms.
When students learn proper stacking (vertical bone alignment), they can start balancing more than just their own weight.
Regular practice and proper technique allows even a smaller person to skillfully base a larger flyer.
This practice derives techniques from traditional yoga streams with the intent to build meaningful human connection within a global community.
Learning to trust, clearly communicate and give & receive are some of the deeper benefits.
In short, Acrovinyasa offers a dynamic expansion beyond your solo practice.
Acrovinyasa is amazing for everyone! All ages, all body shapes and no previous experience needed.
We can not wait to play with you.
Love & light
