    What is Acrobatic Yoga?

    -There are three elements to Acro.Yoga: Acrobatics, Yoga, Therapeutics

    Acrobatics - The physical part of Acro.Yoga that uses gymnastic techniques to build strength, flexibility, trust, and communication.

    Yoga - Reflects the physical, mental, and spiritual disciplines of Yoga. 

    Therapeutics - Includes Thai Massage and inversion therapy.

    -There are three primary roles: Base, Flyer, and Spotter.

    Base - The person lying on the ground. Main points of contact with the flyer are the feet (generally placed on the Flyer's hips/groin) and hands. 

    Flyer - The person who is raised off the ground by the base. The Flyer can move into a series of dynamic positions.

    Spotter - The person who assists in helping the flyer stay up or safely lower down in case of any slips and can aide in Flyer to Base/Base to Flyer communications. 


    Benefits of inversion:

    Relieves back pain by re-hydrating the discs between your vertebra allowing for greater flexibility, shock absorption, and support. 

    Improve's blood circulation which delivers fresh oxygen and nutrients to the heart and brain.

    Decreases anxiety and aids in countering insomnia by releasing neurotransmitters that regulate hormones as well as relaxes the muscles.
