AcroYoga: Connection and Play - Debora O'Callaghan & Wayne Hoover

This beginner-friendly workshop will work on the FUNdamentals of AcroYoga – a beautiful practice that combines the dynamic wisdom of acrobatics, the awareness, breath and balance of yoga, and the healing, loving nature of Thai massage. Working with one or more partners these three disciplines are fused into sequences of inversions, flows and balances. Bring yoga mats.

In AcroYoga, the smallest community is 3 people covering the 3 main roles of base, flyer and spotter. The base is one on the bottom supporting the weight of the flyer. The spotter ensures the safety of the base and flyer, and can act as coach to help the pair through tricky transitions. The flyer is the trusting one on top. The workshop will end with a guided Thai Massage or "leg love" aimed at cooling down, connection and relaxation. Learn progressive transitions and poses of AcroYoga appropriate to the participants’ability and levels in follow-up workshops.

Suitable for: adults only

Duration: 90 minutes

Presenters: Debora O'Callaghan & Wayne Hoover

Luminate for me:

"We believe AcroYoga resonates with Luminate in its ability to facilitate community, helping people to connect with themselves and others through fun play and support."
