Acroyoga is a physical practice which fuses elements of yoga, acrobatics, performance and healing arts. Yoga is a union of mind, body and spirit through concentration, breath, and loving kindness.
Acro simply takes yoga to a new “height” or “summit.” It is a dynamic, exploratory, and joyous practice that builds trust, awareness, and play by taking that connection nurtured by a sole yoga journey to one founded on community and partnership. By working with others, we will learn new strength and flexibility through communication with partnered movement, supportive dialogue, and therapeutic touch. It is not just a practice of tricks and sequencing, but a graceful flow of energy through authentic connection.
I have had the fortune of training with many wonderful teachers, especially my mentor Lux Sternstein of SeattleAcro, who reminds me “everything is possible” and all things we think are not, are simply “yet” to be possible.
With this direction declaration, I am happy to announce my commitment to building a safe and fun ROCAcro community as Acroyoga JAMbassador.
