What To Expect At The Workshop?

Stu & Raquel will guide everyone through a warm-up routine that will get you in the zone for Acro, we'll demonstrate and teach some poses/transitions you may not have tried before and we'll be available to lend any support and provide pointers if you're keen to do your own thing.


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.
