Acro Yoga

What is Arco Yoga?

Acro Yoga is a dynamic and playful practice that combines elements of yoga, acrobatics, and therapeutic flying. Rooted in trust, communication, and connection, AcroYoga involves partner and group interactions to create a harmonious blend of strength, flexibility, and balance.

Acro Yoga

Key Elements:

Acrobatics: AcroYoga incorporates acrobatic elements such as partner balances, inversions, and dynamic movements. These elements require a combination of strength, coordination, and trust between partners.

Yoga Asana: Traditional yoga poses and principles are integrated into AcroYoga, providing a foundation for stability and mindfulness. Participants often transition between yoga poses while supported by their partners.

Therapeutic Flying: One distinctive aspect of AcroYoga is the practice of “therapeutic flying,” where one person takes on the role of the flyer, experiencing a sense of weightlessness and gentle movement, while the other person serves as the base, providing support and stability.


Trust and Connection: AcroYoga cultivates trust and communication between partners. The practice encourages clear communication, active listening, and a shared sense of responsibility.

Strength and Flexibility: Both the flyer and the base in AcroYoga benefit from increased strength, flexibility, and body awareness. The practice challenges participants to explore their physical capabilities in a cooperative setting.

Playfulness and Joy: The playful nature of AcroYoga brings a sense of joy and fun to the practice. Participants often experience a childlike playfulness as they explore movement and connection with others.

Roles in Acro Yoga:

Base: The person who provides a stable foundation, often lying on the ground or supporting the flyer with hands and feet.
Flyer: The person who is lifted and supported by the base, exploring poses and movements in the air.
Spotter: In group settings or when learning new skills, a spotter may assist to ensure safety and provide additional support.

Community and Workshops:

Acro Yoga often thrives in a community setting, with enthusiasts participating in classes, workshops, and events. The practice fosters a sense of belonging and community, where individuals support and uplift each other.

Accessibility and Inclusivity:

While Acro Yoga can involve advanced acrobatic movements, it is adaptable to various levels of experience. Many poses have progressions and variations, making the practice accessible to beginners and seasoned practitioners alike.

Mindful Communication:

Acro Yoga emphasizes the importance of clear communication and active listening. Practitioners learn to communicate their needs and boundaries, fostering a safe and supportive environment.

Acro Yoga is a joyful and collaborative practice that blends the physical elements of acrobatics and yoga with the therapeutic aspects of flying. It promotes trust, connection, and playfulness, offering participants a unique and transformative experience.
