acroyoga
What is acroyoga?

Acroyoga is acrobatics with a yogic consciousness. The essence of acroyoga is being in the moment in balance with another.

 

Can anyone do acroyoga?

Yes as long as you are physically active in some way and have no grave medical conditions, you will be able to practice acroyoga in one form or another.

 

I like all the acrobatics but I don’t care for the yoga part, can I still do acroyoga?

It is called acroyoga because yoga is ½ of the equation. Yoga can help us when the ego starts to take over and we start obsessing about our future greatness and prowess and lose sight of the moment or why we are doing acroyoga.

 

What should I wear?

You should wear comfortable clothing which does not reveal too much anatomy when you go upside down, bend over or spread your legs. Also avoid wearing any jewelry that can get tangled, cut skin, or get caught in the bases feet or hands. Avoid wearing heavy perfumes and oily lotions.

 

Do I need to come with a partner?

You can come with a partner if you feel more comfortable working with a familiar person. But in most classes’ people find a partner and change partners numerous times. It is good to change partners because it helps us develop tools to adjust to a new environment.

 

Am I too heavy to practice acroyoga?

You can still practice but you might end up being a base until you can find someone your size or heavier to fly you. You can also try exploring distributing your weight on a smaller base on different ledges of the body, not just the hands and feet.

 

What should I expect in my first acroyoga class?

Your first acroyoga class is going to be a slow steady immersion into a whole new practice. Basic partner balances: that continues with the core integration and test strength in the arms and legs. Spotting exercises: safety cues and learning to work as a trio.Also expect standing poses, partner yoga, creative process, core containment exercises, as well as basic stacking partner balances.

 

What to avoid eating or drinking before acroyoga?

Eat at least 2 hours before a practice and avoid alcohol. A light snack ½ hour before like a banana or apple is okay. Remember you will be going upside down, so we want the contents in our digestive system to have evacuated the stomach.

 

People who should not do acroyoga?

If you suffer from vertigo, high blood pressure, any herniated discs, destabilized sacrum, and recent surgery, etc…. If you are unsure please consult your medical professional, physiotherapist, or your body worker. One should always proceed with caution when trying a new activity.

I have never practiced yoga and or paddle boarding, is this for me?

Absolutely! We get people that are new to yoga and paddling ALL the time and they end up loving it. Our classes start out with a lesson, so you will learn everything you need to know before heading out. It’s never a race paddling out – it’s more about connecting with your breath.

 

What should I bring?

slackline
What is slackline?

Slackline yoga (or slackasana) has been described as “distilling the art of yogic concentration.” To balance on a 1″ piece of webbing lightly tensioned between two trees is not easy, and doing yoga poses on it is even more challenging. Yet despite the seemingly impossible nature of the act, it is achievable by almost anyone with a little bit of perseverance and patience.

 

Who can slackline?

If you are of average health and ambitious you can try slacklining! Like any other physical activity, there are risks involved but they can be minimized by following the instructions on this website or reading your slackline kit manual. Age is no limit for those who are young at heart and still flexible. If you have children who are minors they can try with help from you. You are responsible to watch them closely at all times.

 

How long does it take to learn to slackline?

You may be surprised to find that slacklining is not as difficult as it seems. With enough practice and concentration many people are able to walk the whole line after a couple of 2-3 hour sessions. A good practice would be to slackline 2-3 times a week for sessions of 1-2 hours. Be sure to take breaks even if you don’t feel strained as you are using smaller muscles that are less often engaged during regular daily activity. Drink plenty of water and use the line to stretch and warm up your muscles.

 

Is slacklining dangerous?

Just like any sport of physical activity, slacklining can result in serious injuries and even death. However, by following the simple guidelines included in your Slackline Manual or on this website, you can minimize the associated risks considerably. Please make sure you read them periodically and fully understand them as that can improve your practice.

SLACKLINE YOGA CLASSES

 

Slackline events in studio vary in price by studio.

 

Currently there are no events scheduled, but check back with us in the Spring!
