Acro Yoga

Acro Yoga

Between the two of us, we have been practicing yoga for over 15 years. Through our personal yoga practice, we really focused on becoming better individuals; physically, mentally, and emotionally. Now that we have grown tremendously as individuals through a solo practice; we figured we'd give acro yoga a shot because it poses a whole new challenge; working and growing together. When practicing acro yoga, not only are you focusing on your own body, but you are being mindful of your partner's body and how your body works with your partner's body. It ultimately allows you to establish a deeper level of trust. For us, it's not about the fancy acro poses you and your partner can do, it's about the connection you make together. We feel strongly that acro yoga has strengthened our relationship so much that we couldn't help but to share our acro yoga journey with you all. So grab a partner, get your playtime on together, and most importantly have FUN!

    For Flip Grip Bow, you will want to make sure you have already done (and feel comfortable) with the Bow tutorial. You will need to make sure you have a confident Flip Grip Bow on the ground level before attempting on your base. First warm up your spine by doing some cat & cows and then doing ...

  • Knee Down Base Bow

    This one is a funny one! It seems very backwards because the base lays on their back and faces away from the flyer. Noah jokes that it makes him feel like the Copper Tone girl laying on the beach! Haha! But in all seriousness, although the flyer is much lower to the ground, its actually more diff...

  • Washing Machine

    This one is SO FUN! And can be a little sexual if used for foreplay ;) haha jk! Or not! But in all seriousness, if you are the flyer, make sure to really stretch your entire body.

Both settings are in front majestic waterfalls of course ;) In the first one, the flyer will start off with straight legs and a curved back and then progress to a straight back.

Please be sure you have a solid headstand pr...

  • Bow

    Bow is one of the basic backbends for you to play with in acro. If you are the flyer, make sure you are warming up your spine by practicing Bow pose on the floor first. Once you feel confident in reaching back and grabbing your ankles on the ground, you can attempt doing it in the air! As for mos...

  • Prasarita Twist

    Twist it out! This one is super fun because the flyer gets to flip directions and twist all while being upside down! Its pretty simple but still looks really cool!

  • Be Playful Inspiration

    Sometimes we get hung up on nailing the perfect pose that we become so rigid we forget to have fun. We encourage you to let go of thinking you have to be perfect. We are not expert acro yogis and are far from perfect, which is why we feel we can share our journey with you from a place of authenti...

  • Flag

    In this video, you will do a Flag prep before attempting the full Flag pose. The base will start on their knees so the flyer isn’t too high up in the air and more importantly, so the flyer can get a feel for where their foot placement is around the base’s neck. The flyer should make sure they hav...

  • Bird

    Bird is the pose you think of when you think acro yoga. It is hands down the most fundamental acro yoga pose in which you will most definitely see in some form or another when you practice other acro poses, especially during transitions. If you are the flyer, warm up by doing some Upward Facing D...

  • Star

    Here’s another really fun one! Although this one may not look that difficult, it really requires a ton of strength for both the base and flyer. In order for the flyer to balance properly on the base’s foot, the flyer must keep their whole body super engaged by squeezing every muscle as tight as p...

    Throne is one of the most fundamental poses in the acro world. In this video, we will practice four different variations of Throne. If you are the flyer, make sure to warm up by stretching your hips! Practice some wide legged forward folding or yogi squats!
