Beginners Acroyoga workshop
Sat 15 October 2016, 12:30 – 17:00 EDT
This beginner friendly workshop, taught by Level 2 Teacher Neilon, will work on the FUNdamentals of AcroYoga. You will learn the roles of spotter, flyer and base. Everyone will have a chance to play all roles.
Acroyoga is a beautiful practice that combines the dynamic wisdom of acrobatics, the awareness, breath and balance of yoga and the healing, loving nature of Thai massage. Working with one or more partners these three disciplines are fused into sequences of inversions, flows and balances.
It’s a community practice, which, at it’s simplest, means that you are working with other people. In this way we can practice developing trust, connection and openness which can then be taken into the community as a whole. In AcroYoga, the smallest community is 3 people covering the 3 main roles of base, flyer and spotter.
The base is essentially the one on the bottom supporting the weight of the flyer. The spotter’s primary role is to ensure the safety of the base and flyer and can act as coach and assistant to help the pair through tricky transitions. The flyer is the trusting one on top.
The teacher Neilon is a Level 2 Certified AcroYoga instructor and the first teacher working in Brighton.
As well as running regular open level and intermediate classes in Brighton he regularly teaches workshops, retreats, holidays and CPD units all over the UK and Europe.
Neilon has been teaching body work for 10 years and practicing yoga for over 30 years and is a Personal Trainer, Thai Yoga Massage therapist. These overlapping skills give Neilon a unique insight into human bodies and a passion for understanding what makes things work.
