AcroYoga & Courage: Trust me & fall into my arms
Courage is not the absence of fear but rather, the ability to move forward in the face of fear. How do we re-discover courage through the practice of AcroYoga? Find balance and learn to fall with a series of counterbalancing, human pyramid & uplifting partner movements. Finish with simple stretches and group massage. Come with uncertainties and leave with courage.

Workshop description
Learn the skills of “moving” and “connecting” with another person within the disciplines of AcroYoga. Sasa will lead you into a series of fundamental practices of taking flight, solid basing and spotting in this workshop. You will learn “play” like a child through movement exploration games and create own unique movement vocabulary. From there, you will explore partnering possibilities through a series of counterbalances, weight sharing and “monkey” games.

Together, we will discover what it means to be strong yet tender, energetic yet graceful. This is a practice of acrobatic + asana + dance with yogic awareness. 

What is AcroYoga?
AcroYoga is the practice of being in the moment and finding balance with the other - Eugene Poku, Co-founder of AcroYoga Montreal, Canada.
