December Acro Workshop - for Beginners!

Oh yeah! Come play!

Register early!



balance strength breath flexibility collaboration laughs
Beginner Workshop

Sunday December 2nd 1-4 pm at The Good Karma Studio, Albany NY
$25 before Monday November 26th, $30 thereafter


Come explore yoga as a creative, collaborative process of movement, breath and presence.

In this three hour workshop we will explore this energizing practice. You will leave with tools to inform your yoga practice, and inspired to develop your AcroYoga practice further! The warm-up is yoga based, and enriched through teamwork. We will work through a variety of AcroYoga skills and strength building exercises in teams. We will have opportunities to find our own creative paths. These skills will build into a partner flow where we will connect with ourselves and our partners through breath, movement and intention.
Your bird pose will take flight! Rediscover your roots! Levitate your shoulderstand!
Connect your breath with others!


This workshop will help you push the edge of what you thought was possible! Spotting techniques will be integrated to help you expand your boundaries, to support others and practice safely while feeling safe, joyous, and supported, especially when upside down!
Yoga beginners as well as those with more experience will find something new to play with.
Partners are not necessary. Dress as you normally would for yoga, but do make sure that you won't lose your shirt when you go upside down!

 

Registration:
Max 20 students! Min 6.

Giant with Chee

I hiked Giant mountain with my friend Chee last weekend.  We had time for a bit of acroyoga at the summit.  By the way, this is just a few miles from Keene Valley!






Cathy told me that I need to add the disclaimer-
Disclaimer: We weren't as close to the edge of a drop-off as it appears
