Intro to AcroYoga: Basing, Flying & Spottingby Grant Shipman
Acro Yoga, is short for acrobatic yoga and blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of the healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community. Grant’s favorite description is, “it’s like break-dancing on someone else’s feet!”. This art has become an explosive addiction across not only Austin but cities around the world. Its practice ranges between gradients of action-packed acrobatics, meditative yoga poses, and restorative therapeutics. Try it out- you'll be glad you did!
