About AcroYoga Workshop for Dancers
AcroYoga combines the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness of Thai massage, and the dynamic power of acrobatics. These three ancient lineages form the foundation of a unique practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness, along with healing, opening and strengthening that a dancer might not find in his or her regular dance training. Participants will find new ways to build a deep, inner core strength, discover how to create more space in the joints, build a new foundation of partnering techniques and obtain the skills to generate a powerful flow of energy and increased body awareness.

Circle Ceremony
The circle initiates the ceremonious joining of community with a flow of integrated movements. Here we establish connection with those around us and cultivate our openness to higher awareness. The circle ceremony sets the tone and theme of the class.

Asana Warm up
Yoga postures warm the body and grounds us individually in preparation for partner work. A mirrored partner asana flow helps to develop concentration, focus, and flexibility. This is an opportunity to look outside ourselves and open our awareness to the common experience.

Partner Flow
Partner Flow is a creative sequence of mutually beneficial partner postures and stretches. Here we learn to understand the give and take of weight through communication, trust, self-acceptance and honesty.

Inversions turn our world upside down and bring out our childlike nature, pushing us to summon our courage and let go of fear. Spotting techniques develop deeper levels of trust, building the foundation for partner skills.

Partner Acrobatics
Partner acrobatics is the most dynamic expression of this work. Greater levels of risk amplify the need for heightened trust, concentration and presence.

Flying flows can range from gentle, massage-based stretches to more dynamic balancing or acrobatic sequences. Therapeutic flying utilizes gravity to release and open the flyer´s spine while grounding and empowering the base. This is the nectar of AcroYoga, aka Anti-Gravitational Spinal Elongation.

Thai Massage
Thai massage techniques use rhythmic muscle compression, assisted yoga positions and stretching that release stagnated chi along energy meridians creating a relaxed, meditative state for both the practitioner and receiver.

All levels to this AcroYoga series welcomed.
