Class Structure: 1. HANDSTANDS We will be focussing on what it really takes to achieve great handstands without pulling any punches. We have spent decades guiding people with private lessons to achieving their goals in handstands from competing gymnasts, circus performers, yoga instructors, professional dancers, contortionists, stunt people and other professional trainers.   We will be focussing on exactly what it will take for everyone to achieve awesome handstands and improvements on their handstands, posture correction, background training required, alterations in their technique required, and the fast methods that actually work. But also if anyone can already do handstands we will be taking them further – this is a passion,. we have an amazing array of dazzling handstand variations to share with everyone motivated.

2. ACROBATIC YOGA, ACRO-DANCE & ACRO-BALANCE – Every week we will be taking people through a specially selected set of innovative moves specially developed for our students.

3. TUMBLING and FLIPS everyone can do – Develop handsprings, headsprings, backflips, sommersaults in a supportive amusing fashion that everyone can progress at their own pace.

4. Circus ACROBATICS and ADAGIO – Group work to achieve performance level moves.

5. FLEXIBILITY This section of th class will change your way of thinking about flexibility and will definitely improve the way you go about achieving it. We will be sharing with everyone the wisdom of particular physical yoga methods, the discipline and grace of particular Dance methods, the science of the high level methods and avoiding injury used by competing gymnasts, but also in particular the secrets used in the circus to get some immediate remarkable results that can be used by everyone.

 

Fundamentals
ACROPLAY or Partner Acrobatic Yoga involves partner assisted acrobatic movements usually with one partner lying on their back on the floor and the other partner elevated off the ground performing a range of balances, stretches, rotations and aerial movements.

History
This style of acrobatics is an evolving sport. It has been practiced in many guises and forms over the years and overlaps a number of diversified sports and schools – and that’s the fun of it.
We practice the purely physical side of Partner Acrobatic Yoga and the range of movements and balances that can be created with this simple low to the ground genre.
Most people with a reasonable level of fitness will enjoy the challenges of this practice.

Who would get the most benefit out of it ?
– Friends and Partners who would like to practice safe and fun acrobatic movements at   home
– Yoga practitioners who are looking to get something more from their practice
– Teachers of Acrobalance, Yoga or Gymnastics who would like to expand their practice
– People who are looking to keep very fit and strong in a new fun way
– Adagio practitioners to develop a trust and an extensive range of groundwork to work with either as part of their performances, or to use as an ideal low-level way to practice higher hand to hand skills
– Parents who want to have fun with their children
– Husbands and Wives or just friends who would like to expand what they can do together as a sport

Level 1 is for everyday people and yoga enthusiasts to take your postures, flexibility, balance, core strength and general abilities a big step forward regardless of initial level.

Level 2 is for those already a little more advanced or athletic, or just those a little more adventurous in what they want to achieve. Everyone can do it with practice and the correct instruction.

Level 3 is often for experts, eg Gymnasts, Acrobats, Advanced Yoga Practitioners and Teachers, Professionals and Performance level, however for those who really want to try movements from this level, they can still experience it with the assistance of the appropriate instructor and/or experienced partner.

We teach all levels in parallel so everyone can work at their own level and can be challenged appropriately at all times in their development.

Acrobalance for Yoga utilises a number of well known floor level balances and movements from the Acrobalance world, and continually extends movemets and adds innovative and fun ways to twist, tumble, balance, pitch and flip your partner.

NB: We do not utilise Massage or Healing ideas, we are purely focused on students attaining acrobatic skills.

Practicing for over 15 years, we are professional acrobats, gymnasts, and performers and fully trained and qualified Australian Instructors.
