Acroyoga brings together acrobatics and yoga. In Acroyoga, there are three roles for students: base, flyer and spotter. You can support your partner as they stretch or perform inversions, and though it may seem like it, you don’t need to be exceptionally strong to pull it off. With the instructor’s help and proper placement, supporting another person is easier than you might think. You can also be the one upside down, as a flyer. Don’t worry that you’re too heavy to be held up, just about everyone can do Acroyoga! You may also opt to be the spotter, making sure everyone stays safe. Switching up roles and learning trust, plus stretching? A definite night of fun!
