It’s always amazing to watch hardcore yoga practitioners do their thing. Like, balancing upside down on one toe with their hands twisted behind their should blades. They can do that kind of stuff. So it’s not such a stretch for the yoga world to extend into the kind of circusy, kind of dancy acrobatics world. Many yogis have been getting into acrobatics, since it combines the balance, strength, and flexibility developed in yoga with the trust and communication that come with partner work. Plus, of course, it looks cool. Awesome teachers André Newman & Serena Tang will visit Baltimore Yoga Village this weekend for yet another of their acroyoga offerings. This two-day exploration of the technical and creative process of acroyoga will focus on the fundamentals of acrobatic yoga as well as a variety of dynamic partner postures and sequences. Students will learn the fundamentals of partner stacks, counterbalances, and therapeutic flying. We assume that means that the flying feels good, and not terrifying. No previous acroyoga experience is necessary, either. The class will progress at the pace of the group’s combined efforts; bringing a small group of dedicated students together to explore and be inspired by one another. All levels are welcome, no partner necessary. Just a readiness to soar.
Baltimore Yoga Village is located at the Historic Mill Centre at 3000 Chestnut Ave in Baltimore. The acro-yoga workshop takes place this Saturday and Sunday from 1pm-3:30pm. Reservations are required. Visit www.baltimoreyogavillage.com for details or to sign up.
