Acroyoga is also known as the „Yoga of Trust“ but why? There are three roles: Firstly as a Base you are connected to the ground and the interface between your flyer and the surface. You move, support and balance your partner and your communication will be a movement or a reaction to a movement. Secondly as a Flyer you will leave your comfort zone consciously and intentionally. The world looks completely different upside down and you may get confused. The practice will show you a different perspective and step-by-step you will develop awareness for your own body and your supportive friend in a playful way. Thirdly A Spotter is taking care that the vulnerable and precious partnership between Flyer and Base doesn’t get endangered. Safety is most important. You will always grow as a team.
Every session will be exciting, challenging and full of surprises. Amazing things will happen when you cooperate and are full of faith, consideration and confidence. Everything seems possible as long as you listen, care and be aware of your counterpart. Every role and every position is equal, beautiful and unique and they are free from requirements and restrictions. ‚Too heavy‘, ’not flexible‘ or ’not strong‘ enough doesn’t exist in Acroyoga. You should also try to swap the roles to empathise with your partner and discover their needs. You will also learn to ask for what you need.
