A Fusion of Yoga – Acrobatics – Thai Massage

AcroYoga is a practice that attracts a community of adventure seekers who believe we stay young at heart from playing.  Playing stimulates us physically and mentally, and those that play together grow together.

AcroYoga is a blend of three enduring practices: yoga for flexibility of body and mind, acrobatics for agility and strength building and Thai Massage to balance the active and dynamic with nurturing therapy. This combination cultivates trust, connection and fun. Our ambition is to inspire individuals to realise their highest potential.

The Practice

We value that together we go places that we cannot on our own…

The practice of AcroYoga is based on safe guidelines, so the art of ‘spotting’ is central to our workshops. The spotter is the person who keeps each movement safe and supported. You will experience working in trios exchanging roles of a base, a flyer and a spotter.

Our workshops are suitable for all ages and levels of fitness. We gauge the room and then tailor the experience to our participants; no two workshops will ever be alike.

We will playfully discover inversions, partner yoga and strengthening exercises as building blocks for the acrobatic practices. We will also ground all this high energy with therapeutic practices of massage and yoga.

No partner is required but curiosity, playfulness and a childlike approach is recommended to get the most out of this practice.
