Summer 2017 Adult Acroyoga with Team WillCo

Ages 18+ Acroyoga is a practice of awareness and connection. Drawing on yoga, we use the breath to connect movements and expand awareness. Drawing on acrobatics, we work to find lightness in flight and balance. Drawing on dance, we move in conversation with others. The outcome - our acro flows - are as creative, strong and diverse as the students we work with. This series is designed to build a foundation in the practice. Each class will start with a short warm-up and strength training. Then we will workshop new skills. We will train these skills across the course and weave them into a flow. In acro we often work in teams of three, rotating through each of three roles (base, flyer, spotter). You don’t need to come with partners, we can make teams there. You will get upside-down in this workshop: dress so that you won’t lose your shirt. No shoes required. This 6-week class begins the week of July 10 and runs through the week of August 13
