Have you ever done AcroYoga?

Friday, October 5th, 2012

Hi Cavers,

Have you ever done AcroYoga?  I’ve had the pleasure of playing around with it a little with Shira, co-owner of  The Athletic Playground in Emeryville and some of our other friends.  I think it’s actually really fun and stretches you out in a way that feels so positive to your body that it’s hard to describe.  I was wondering if any of you have ever tried it and what you think of it if you have.  There are two main “types” of AcroYoga, one “therapeutic” which feels,… well, therapeutic, and the other one that emphasizes the Acrobatics and fancy moves which is fun and cool but a bit more show-offish.  Here are some videos that can give you an idea of what it’s about.

This is a really good example of therapeutic Acro.  You have no idea how good this feels are your spinal column unless you’ve tried it.  The “flyer” is the one benefiting from the “base”.

I really like this one not just because the practitioners are so good, but also because of I think the sound track and tempo are perfect for a good relaxing, therapeutic AcroYoga session.  Not that these two throw in their fair share of acrobatics in there as well!

Here is one of Crystal and Kathy from The Athletic Playground demonstrating one of their tricks:

Can you believe that there is also an AcroYoga move called a “Ninja Star”?  Well, you know I have to post a video of a “Ninja Star”, don’t you?  These are Zac and Crystal from at The Athletic Playground  as well:

And finally here is the 2011 AcroYoga festival, which gets pretty fancy.  Maybe even proves that  even hippies are competitive at heart.  Rofl.

So what did you think?  Would you try something like this?  Why or why not?
