Skill Set: AcroYoga at CAMH
Saturday, August 15 | 1-3PM
CAMH and Nosie Yogi invite you to take your Yoga game to the next level at this Skill Set where you’ll learn the practice of AcroYoga, a hybrid yogic exercise that combines the training of partner acrobatics with the philosophy of yoga. AcroYoga works best in partnerships of three people:a flyer (person in the air), a base (person on the ground), and a spotter (a person who makes sure everyone is safe). In this class, participants will divide into groups of three to learn the fundamentals of AcroYoga and progressions to get people in the air. AcroYoga is about community, building communication, and using trust to accomplish amazing things. It also has its roots in Thai and therapeutic massage, which helps practitioners find balance in their work.
