Ottawa_Circus_School_AcroYoga_Sophie_ElliotWhat is Acroyoga?

Partner lifts with a yogic consciousness.

Yoga concepts of good body alignment, movement and breath are mixed with the strength training of acrobatics and the playful kindness of community building all with a dash of dance aesthetics. No matter what your previous experience, we will guide you to achieve fluid transitions through postures that might seem inaccessible but can be attained through practice, techniques and partner awareness.

Throughout the session, participants will be supported in order to move confidently into progressive postures, with safe spotting techniques.

So join the playful fitness movement for fun-filled evenings of partner postures, counterbalancing, and lifts!

Hope to see you there!
