Acro Yoga 101

"The word Acroyoga comes from the Greek root AKROS = high and the sanskrit word YOGA = union. Together they form ACROYOGA, high union. From this place, many amazing physical shapes can be formed, and students literally and figuratively elevate each other. It invites you to experience to give and receive. It's a systematic approach to health and healing designed to be accessible for every practitioner. Acroyoga is a mix of yoga, acrobatics and Thai massage. Students learn techniques that will support them becoming skillful base. Acroyoga is one of the best places to clutivate win-win situations, give and receive, health and healing. It's a real experience of strength and sensitivity with FUN !!!"

I invited Emilie to introduce us to a discipline that she has been practicing for some time and that she LOVES : Acroyoga. 

In this 1H30 workshop we'll focus more on basics acrobatics and thai massage as most people have already practiced yoga or have some ideas what it is. 

Here is a (very) advanced video of acroyoga (don't be scared!) :

Yes! I used the word 'acrobatics". Indeed I did. Yet don't be that frightened. You don t have to be half mister-fantastic half daredevil to attend. What we ll cover are real simple basics done by pairs : a base and a flyer (sometimes a third person on the side to help and prevent falls - shame on you who did not come to the previous Breakfalls workshop). Anyone can do it and... It s GREAT FUN!

Here is something closer to what we ll be doing for a 101 class :

Thai massage is becoming increasingly popular around the globe. Basics are very easy to grasp, very effective to release tensions and sooo relaxing to receive!!! Having some basic massage skills is always handy whether is it to relax a friend or to thank your body after a workout. If we have the time and energy  we ll have a glimpse of Thai flying massage, an Acroyoga specialty pairing massage with gravity to feel even better.

Here is an ADVANCED sequence of  Thai Flying massage / Yoga :

So hurry up! Save yourself an entrance! Bring some friends along so you can continue practicing together after the workshop is over. Well... I don t know... Are you really ready for such a level of fitness and fun mix??

    Thanks everyone for showing up and bringing such a good vibe to the workshop. It was a pleasure to meet so many smiling faces. We ll probably organise an other one soon (probably next month- and a bit less crowded).
    In the meantime I would strongly advise you to take one on one lessons with Emilie (or one on two if you cme to see her with an acropartner). I know she would not say but her fees are so low it s almost indecent.
