Introduction to Acro Yoga with Joe Barnett (E-RYT 500)
In Acro Yoga we plant a seed of Yogic Consciousness in the Field of Partner/Ensemble Acrobatics and watch what grows.
As with all of Yoga, the practice has Sun (Ha) and Moon (Tha) aspects.
The Moon practice includes therapeutic applications such as Flying Massage and Assisted Yin Yoga Stretching.
The Sun practice is dynamic and playful: sometimes full of vigour, inversions and core strength; sometimes effortlessly fluid and creative; and always a good time.
Both approaches develop connection, trust, communication.
Both approaches can be very aesthetically pleasing to observe, on the streets and in the park we tend to draw a crowd. Yet both approaches are at the core a Functional and Experimental Practice more than an Aesthetic one.
• the foundational language
• functional principals
• see what happens when a group of Yogis gather with their unique physical proportions and energetic beings to build Yoga Asanas which are much bigger and more beautiful than one body can create alone.
The bridge between these steps, we build together by smoothly juggling moments of observation, discussion and full-steam action.
