Chris and Jessie will be guiding two acroyoga workshops.
Saturday, 11:30 - 1:15 pm SOLAR (acrobatic): This class emphasizes what are called calibrations. This will teach you to play safely with any acro partner of any level and understand each other's center of gravity, anatomy, limitations, and strengths. We will progress to and calibrate the fundamental acro yoga postures of bird, throne, shoulder stand, and high whale. Techniques of a yoga headstand will be included and spotting will be emphasized. We will conclude with a washing machine that links all these postures together. A washing machine is a kind of acro yoga vinyasa the cycles through postures, ending where it began. All levels encouraged and welcome. We will have options for more experienced enthusiasts as well!
Sunday, 4:45-6:15 pm LUNAR (therapeutic): Mounts and dismounts, meaning getting on our partners feet and then back to the ground, are the trickiest part of a gentle, easeful lunar acro yoga experience. We will study the basic mounts and dismounts for the three fundamental acro yoga positions - lifted baddhakonasana, backward leaf, and high flying whale. From here almost every lunar acro yoga pose can be transitioned to. We will include other lunar poses time permitting and of course end with leg love (i.e. small dose of thai massage). Spotting and therapeutic communication will be emphasized. No partner required. Participants should have the ability to lay on their back with their legs straight vertical (give or take). All levels encouraged and welcome.
