So what is acro yoga?
AcroYoga is a form of partner yoga where two yogis work together for therapeutic release and acrobatic fun. Founders Jason Nemer and Jenny Sauer-Klein met in San Francisco in 2003 and began practicing together soon after, combining their backgrounds in yoga and acrobatics to create supported versions of traditional yoga poses with the intent to build human connections and create community.
How do you do Acro Yoga?
One partner (called the base) supports the other (the flyer) in a series of aerial postures. The necessary personnel is rounded out by a spotter, who makes sure everyone has good alignment so the flyer doesn’t fall. The base most often lies flat on his or her back and supports most of the flyer’s weight with his or her extended legs. The legs, when properly aligned with the ankles over the hips, can support a lot of weight, so that a small person is capable of basing a larger flyer. The base can support the flyer’s hips with their feet for backbends or their shoulders for inversions, among many other possible combinations.
Why Try Acro Yoga in Orlando, Florida?
Yoga can be a very solitary practice. Though many seek out a common experience by attending group classes, it can still feel like you are practicing with a bubble around your yoga mat. Partner yoga bursts that bubble, forcing an interaction. AcroYoga goes a step further by requiring cooperation and trust.
