What To Expect At The Workshop?

We'll guide everyone through a warm-up routine that will get you in the zone for Acro, we'll demonstrate and teach some fundamental postures to get everyone started, then move into our focus on transitions. We're more than happy to dive into some more advanced poses too; always move at your own pace!


We'll aim to share some basic thai massage toward the end to help wind things down. Always a healing way to finish practice.


The studio space is a large area with oak flooring, high exposed ceilings, lots of props for comfort, plants and heating. A welcoming space where you can breath and move mindfully!


When it comes to Acro Yoga, safety is important to us. We encourage everyone to work in threes - one base, one flyer and one person spotting; we'll provide some tips on how to spot correctly once we get going.

What Is Acro Yoga?

A physical practice which combines yoga and acrobatics - don't let the word acrobatics put you off; like with most things, you can control what you try and don't try; always start slow!

Generally Speaking:

  1. One person is lying flat on their back with legs lifted - The Base

  2. The other is lifted and moving around on the other person feet / hands - The Flyer

  3. The third person is watching everything unfold, with arms out at the ready to catch / support any falls - The Spotter


When you become more comfortable with Acro Yoga postures and transitions, you can begin to draw on traditions of circus arts, cheerleading and dance acro.
