So what is AcroYoga? It is a practice that combines Yoga, Acrobatics and Thai Massage. The beautiful combination of these unique practices helps to cultivate deeper communication, trust, connection and playfulness.
“Lunar” refers to the therapeutic branch of AcroYoga, the softer side. It focuses on the restorative and rejuvenating practices of therapeutic flying and Thai Massage. In this practice, the flyer is passive and receptive to a form of bodywork given by the base.
During the evening, we will rotate roles to learn the parts of all three players: base, flyer, and spotter. When flying, we will explore how all of these roles contribute to the safety and support of all involved. Everyone will be given the opportunity to base, fly, and spot, to nurture and be nurtured.
Following our “fun with flight” we’ll delve into the yummy and nurturing practice of Thai massage.
This is a beginner’s playshop. There will be a strong emphasis on safety, play, connection, community and nurturance. All levels of fitness, experience, and ability can find a safe and enjoyable level in this playshop.
We will be switching partners and groups throughout the evening, for our maximum learning experience, as well as to aid in the cultivation of a sense of community. If you choose to bring a partner though, don’t worry, you’ll have a chance to work with them at different points during the evening.
