In Acro Yoga (Montreal-style), 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 (Yang) and Moon (Yin) 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.
Each aspect develops:
The combined approaches are beautiful to watch, 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. In the first steps, we learn a foundational language and certain functional principals, the final steps are to 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.
It is not required to come with a partner. We encourage you to bring a friend. But please know: the Acro Yoga experience is one of community development. Everyone will work with everyone.
Whether connecting quietly, therapeutically and reciprocally to open deeply into one another’s hips and spines; or connecting to Fly, Spin and Snake around eachother in a Partner Flow; we will all meet each other in a unique communal heart space.
