Day 1:

This workshop will introduce you to the FUNdamentals of acro in a supportive environment that will encourage you to test your personal edge and cultivate sensitivity, stability, confidence and trust. Incorporating the principles of both the Yoga Slackers (www.yogaslackers.com) and the Acro Revolution practice this is an amazing opportunity to rise to new heights and build community.

We will be working with the elements of:
*Receptivity
*Tightness
*Strength
*Bone Stacking
*Co-creation and collaboration

Acro is unique in that it is both a partner and a community activity which gives us the opportunity to both literally and figuratively lift each other up and help each other fly. No partner or experience necessary. Come with an open mind and prepared to learn the basics of basing, spotting, and flying.

*Note: we will not be slacklining in this workshop, but we will be working with strength and balance in fun and accessible ways. Please bring your own mat or mat rentals for $1.

Day 2:
Slackro Revolution-
“Play is the highest form of research” -Einstein

If day one we learned to empty the laundry hamper, this second workshop we will start the washer. The intention of this workshop is to begin to build higher level skills and take the fundamentals of acro and put them into practice. We will be learning a series of poses that flow into one another (known as a Washing Machine) and will build on the principles of L-Basing, bone stacking, and progressions. This workshop will be taught in the spirit of play but challenge you and will work towards breaking down dynamic material in an accessible way.Before you know it you will be popping, whipping, spinning, and balancing!

This workshop will explore some traditional style washing machine material as well as some YogaSlacker “Slackro” material. Slackro is the translation of the slackline yoga practice to a partner in acro yoga.

Our aim is to begin to refine skills and to give you the tools to work at your level of experience while getting a more comprehensive picture of where this amazing practice can take you in your body, mind, spirit and partnerships. Come ready to play and to surprise yourself!

Prereqs: Workshop 1 or basing or flying throne, bird, star, and side-star.
This workshop is for folks who have some experience with Acro or attended day 1 as we will be building on fundamentals. No partner necessary. Please bring your own mat or mat rentals for $1. Unitards are encouraged.
