Acroyoga for beginners

Akroyoga is a pair of yoga that combines elements of yoga, acrobatics and healing art. During the session, one of the partners acts as a support, and the second moves from one position to another almost in the air, relying only on the other person. The founders of this style of yoga are Mexican Jason Nemer and American Jenny Sauer-Klein. If the partners are experienced and well feel each other, from the side of their actions they look like something incredible, as if they were at the performance of acrobats in Cirque du Soleil.

The essence of akroyoga – to be in the “moment” and in balance with another person.

In akroyogi there are three roles: the base (base), the pilot and the insurer.

The basis Is the person who has the greatest number of points of contact with the ground or the floor. The main points of contact with the partner-pilot are feet of feet and hands. The basis is the embodiment of stability and stability.

Pilot – this is the person who actually flies, that is, makes in the air a series of poses, smoothly passing from one to another. He is the embodiment of freedom, dynamism and balance.

Insuring – this is a person who follows both partners. Its task is to ensure their safety and to pick up the pilot in case of danger.

Contraindications: problems with the musculoskeletal system (problems with joints) and high blood pressure.
