INTRO TO ACROYOGA

          

Learn to fly— learn to launch and sustain a partner in the air— learn AcroYoga! Does it look too challenging? Don't underestimate your power-- if you're athletic enough to complete an intermediate-level We Yoga class, we can shape that athleticism into the Jedi qualities that make flight possible. In this 2-1/2 hour workshop, you'll develop:

 

- Communication- verbal and non-verbal

- Core strength

- Balance

- Flexibility

- Using bone strength to support weight

- Safe spotting skills

 

From this foundation, we'll blast off on a two-phase journey. You'll explore:

 

1. Therapeutics- in which the “flyer” is relaxed; including spinal tractioning, building to tractioned backbends and twists

2.  Acrobatics- in which the “flyer” is active; building to supported inversions

 

We guarantee you'll be sore from the work and play (especially in your face, from smiling)-- so we'll weave in healing Thai Massage practices. You'll leave feeling amazing, and amazed by what you've just done!

Level-appropriate partners will be arranged in class-- though you're welcome to come in pairs or groups, it's not necessary. 

We can usually practice safely with-- and even heal-- injuries or other limitations in AcroYoga. If you have any concerns, please come to class 1/2 hour early to consult with Tim and we'll work out modifications that can make this practice safe and accessible for anyone with a basic yoga practice!

Certified AcroYoga Instructor and Washington native Tim Seiwerath has been teaching yoga for 11 years and AcroYoga for 9 years, and is the founder of Seattle's Yoga for Parkinson's Disease programs. He loves to make yoga-- and AcroYoga-- accessible to everyone.
