AcroYoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community. Jenny Sauer-Klein and Jason Nemer co-founded the practice in 2003, which has since touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people world-wide.
Acrobàtic Solar Practice
The solar elements are strength building, inversions with spotting, and partner acrobatics. As we build strength by using acrobatic and gymnastic training techniques we can expand the vision of our personal power. We also cultivate the ability to coach each other to encourage positively and teamwork. The inversions and spotting give the chance to build trust and efficient acrobatic techniques for headstands, handstands etc.
Partner Acrobatics is where we put it all together in a group of 3: Base, Flyer & Spotter. The base creates the foundation for the acrobatics, the flyer trusts and dances through the air and the spotter makes sure this all happens safely! These practices build a playful, strong community that can help us all realize our true potential.
Healing Arts Lunar Practice
The Lunar Therapeutic Practice includes massage, therapeutic flying and partner yoga. The aim in these practices, is that both the giver and receiver can feel more full and balanced. Our main tools are gravity, sensitivity, loving kindness, feeling and releasing.
Therapeutic flying is an inverted aerial massage. The base supports the flyer with their legs as the flyer hangs passively. The base uses gravity, stretching and sensitive touch to open the flyers upper body. When the flyer comes down they do massage on the bases warmed up legs. The session is complete when both partner have given and received, based and flown, inhaled and exhaled.
It is the wisdom of yoga that helps us to approach all of these Practices with humility, dedication and devotion. The path of yoga can impact your every decision, action and breathe with mindfulness, service and love. Yoga serves us by preparing the body, expanding teh breathe, concentrate the mind and learn asanas and body shapes that later on we ewill do upside down.
