We will be running another AcroYoga workshop Autumn 2017. Please contact me to be kept informed.
I am so excited that Jaqui Wan has agreed to come and lead this workshop for us. I met Jaqui when she was teaching on a recent yoga retreat I attended. She is an awesome teacher who teaches AcroYoga in London. I asked her if she would come and run a workshop for us here in Ascot and here we are! This is going to be so much fun!
When: Saturday 26th November 2016, 10am-5pm
Where: Ascot Community Hall, Ascot Durning Library, High Street, Ascot, Berkshire, SL5 7JF
Costs: Early bird rate for bookings before 13/11/16 £40 or after £50 for the day.
Jaqui will share with you the realms of this practice that brings about the collaboration of yoga, acrobatics and healing arts. The day will will act as an introduction to the limitless possibilities that is AcroYoga.
In the morning from 10am – 1pm, we will explore the solar side to the practice. We will touch on the fire side to the practice with acrobatic conditioning to prepare you for inversions and partner balancing, with the potential to work on simple transitions, as well as playing with human pyramids.
This is suitable for complete beginners, though body awareness is an advantage, it will be a great opportunity to delve into the world of being upside down and the art of communication and the human potential to do seemingly impossible things.
There will be an hours lunch break from 1-2pm.
In the afternoon from 2-5pm, we will delve into the lunar side of the practice beginning with partner yoga and assisted stretching and there after delve into world of Thai massage with leg love.
We will introduce suspended flying therapeutics, involving a base and flyer. The base grounds and suspends the flyer with their hands and feet to create the potential to release tension and muscular holding patterns. The passive nature of the flyer enables the base to sculpt the flyer into a variety of shapes that stretches and opens the flyers upper body.
This day is open to all but some body awareness or body work practice would be an advantage.
