Everything You Need to Know About AcroYoga

What is AcroYoga?

Have you ever enviously scrolled through Instagram posts of beautifully staged yoga poses in exotic locations with two people balanced atop each other, wishing that could be you? Maybe you’ve watched a few videos on Youtube? Perhaps you’ve gazed on as a couple of students play around with intricate looking acro poses after class and thought ‘what is that?! I could never do what they’re doing!’. Well here at Yogi Bare we are here to tell you that you can and you should! Whether you are a yogi pro looking to broaden your skills or a newbie feeling inspired, AcroYoga is for everybody. 

Acroyoga is a combination of three traditions; yoga, acrobatics and Thai massage. AcroYoga is very similar to partner yoga in that it involves two people (and a spotter!), but with the added fun and dimensions of acrobatics. It doesn’t stop there, AcroYoga also involves the healing qualities of Thai massage. This makes AcroYoga a very powerful, beneficial and playful way of practicing yoga. 

What are the psychological benefits of AcroYoga?

Whether you are the base, flyer or the spotter, you will learn to embrace trust, poise and connect with balance. The trust that is needed to perform AcroYoga poses can instantly create a bond that is hard to recreate anywhere else. The high you’ll also get after nailing an AcroYoga pose will keep you coming back for more week after week. Not to mention the confidence you will gain being surrounded by a supportive community and like-minded yogis!

What are the physical benefits of AcroYoga?

As well as mentally, you will also be able to physically see the benefits of your hard work. AcroYoga strengthens your core, improves flexibility and balance. Practicing AcroYoga moves will get you working up a sweat and a great way to increase your body strength. After a session of practicing AcroYoga you will walk away feeling energised and fitter than ever. It’s like running away to the circus without ever having to leave home, what more convincing do you need?! 

Can beginners do AcroYoga?

Yes, AcroYoga is for everybody! If you are new to AcroYoga it is always worth attending a class so you can get a feel for the basic poses and techniques. An experienced AcroYoga teacher will also ensure you are practicing safely so there are no accidents during your first attempt at the Front Bird or Throne Pose. It is also a great place to meet like-minded people especially if you are short of a partner or spotter. Chances are there are other newbies there too so you can learn together and support each other in your new venture. 

Once you’ve attended your first class and have a feel for the flow of AcroYoga you won’t be able to stop. After you’ve perfected the basics, it’s time to get creative! Soon you’ll be doing the Half Mood and Tri-Pod Headstand with the pros. 

Is AcroYoga difficult?

As with all yoga, AcroYoga comes in varying degrees of difficulty. Whilst beginners AcroYoga does challenge your strength, balancing and communication skills it is possible to become a pro with practice! The difficulty of the poses can vary from simple holds to extremely intricate and complex moves so there is definitely something for everyone. If you have practiced yoga before this will make it easier and allow you to progress faster at AcroYoga. This is particularly true if you know and practice the yoga poses on a mat before you try to execute them with a partner. 

What equipment do I need for AcroYoga?

One of the main benefits of AcroYoga is it’s relatively low cost. All you need is your favourite yoga partner, something comfortable to wear and a good yoga mat! For clothing we suggest something form fitting but stretchy, you don’t want to get tangled whilst you’re up there. Apart from that all you’ll need is a good yoga mat to act as a soft and grippy base. We recommend our Yogi Bare Paws X Enhanced Grip Innovation. This mat is a bit longer and wider than most yoga mats, plenty of room two! Our mat also has innovative grip technology so even if you break out in a sweat you won't slip from your High Flying Whale or Folded Leaf Pose.

Don’t forget the most important thing to bring to your first AcroYoga class, a positive attitude. Go in with the mindset of ‘yes, I can do this!’. Even those perfectly balanced yogis you saw on Instagram started somewhere. You reading this is the first step.
