Fear of flying?

If the idea of being held up in the air by a fellow student is intimidating or the thought of supporting another human being as they seek to find balance off the ground makes you queasy, you’re in good company. Before taking their first class, many students question if they’re strong enough, flexible enough, or otherwise fit enough for AcroYoga.

What outweighs the uncertainty however is the intrigue that this yoga style brings. There’s a ‘magic’ in the poses and a beauty in seeing the partnership of two AcroYogis in action.  And you can discover what it’s all about at this Saturday’s AcroYoga 101: FUNdamentals with Leyna Schaeffer. To help you look past the fears and consider the possibilities we’ve put together this collection of videos and articles.

Here’s a video from instructor Leyna Schaeffer giving a quick look at what happened at a recent AcroYoga 101 class.
