Acroyoga Workshops for Beginners - Seattle Yoga Arts

Two Workshops with Jaime Waliczek

Choose from either beginner-level workshop, or take both (for a discounted rate)! Bring a partner or come alone! There’s something for everyone at these two fun events!

Therapeutic Acroyoga: An Introduction for Beginners

Date & Time: Friday, June 19, 2020 @6:00–9:00 pm

Learn about the healing art of acroyoga, experience the yum factor you get when practicing partner poses in traditional yoga and learn to fly in this sumptuous workshop. We’ll begin by centering and warming up the body, then practice giving our weight to the ground and to a partner in preparation for becoming airborne!

You do not need a partner to attend, but you’re welcome to bring one. Consent will be practiced throughout the workshop to keep all participants comfortable in each pose. Come experience the joy of flying and allowing your body to expand with the help of another wonderful human.

Expect to learn:

How to give your weight to the floor in order to expand your body
Weight sharing poses with a partner
 How to safely base, fly, and spot some acroyoga therapeutic poses

    • Base: lies on the floor, legs inverted; gives the healing stretches
    • Flyer: off the ground; receiving the benefits of the poses
    • Spotter: stands by the duo; keeps the flyer safe

Tuition: $60 stand alone, or $50 if registering for both acroyoga workshops

 

Acroyoga Fundamentals: For Curious Beginners!

Date & Time: Saturday, June 20, 2020 @1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Are you curious about acroyoga but haven’t had the chance to try it? This workshop will start from the basics and teach you how to safely start an acroyoga practice.

For each pose there is a base (lies on the floor, legs inverted), a flyer (up in the air), and a spotter who is keeping everyone safe. In this workshop you get to choose to be a base, a flyer, or both. Everyone will practice spotting. You can come alone or bring a partner you would like to work with. We will work in groups of 3-4 so that every pose has a spotter and each practitioner is completely safe throughout the practice. Join Jaime and build connections with other people in this wonderful practice of connection!

We will cover:

A centering and warm up practice with familiar yoga poses to get you ready for partnering
How to practice consent in acroyoga
How to spot safely in order to keep each participant safe at all times
How to give and receive the weight of a partner safely and effectively
Some basic acroyoga poses including front bird, throne and side star

Tuition: $60 stand alone, or $50 if registering for both acroyoga workshops
