AcroYoga is a unique form of exercise that combines the spirituality of yoga, Thai massage, and the dynamic power of Acrobatics. Seven main elements make up the practice: circle ceremony, asanda, partner flow, Thai massage, therapeutic flying, inversions and spotting, and partner acrobatics.  

Partner Flow is a mutually beneficial sequence of partner asanas and stretches which give participants the platform to practice self-acceptance, receptivity and communicating one’s needs. 

In addition, the act of therapeutic flying utilizes gravity and metta to release and open the flyers’ spine while simultaneously grounding and empowering the base. This is the core of AcroYoga, also known as Anti-Gravitational Spinal Elongation Therapy.

This unique and creative class will surely leave one feeling rejuvenated and connected.  Register online or call to reserve a spot- spaces fill up fast!
