Fall 2017 Adult Beginner 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.

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 9-week session begins the week of September 17 and runs through the week of November 12.
