Looks like all that thinking from Shuyi’s last Acroyoga session has materialized into something more. We’re super excited to announce our first ever Acroyoga Workshop! It’ll be held on 29 Apr 2017, a Saturday, and based on Acrovinyasa – a variant which unites elements from acroyoga and vinyasa flows. It’ll be conducted by Acrovinyasa certified instructors Sara Wee and Rachel Ng from The Yoga Mandala.
What’s Acroyoga and Acrovinyasa?
Acroyoga is a form of yoga which combines acrobatics and yoga. In some forms of acrobatics (especially, in our minds, those super bendy Chinese acrobatics), there are many elements of stacking – where a group of people climb atop each other in various poses to end up looking like a human pyramid. Combine that with yoga, and you get a group of people climbing atop each other in yoga poses to end up looking like a human pyramid.
Acrovinyasa is a variant of acroyoga which incorporates Vinyasa flows into its structure. It’s was pioneered and trademarked by Yoga Beyond in 2014, and is now one of the fastest growing standardised form of Acroyoga in the world.
Whichever it is, you’ll be climbing atop another practitioner (or two) to go into different yoga poses. The person at the bottom is called the base, while the person on top is called the flyer. Of course, for safety’s sake, there will also be a very important third person, the spotter, making sure to correct and catch and imbalances or falls. And they say three’s a crowd, huh?
What’s the Acroyoga Workshop like?
As mentioned before, it will be conducted by Sara Wee and Rachel Ng from The Yoga Mandala, so that’s our way of saying: you’ll be in good hands.
It’ll be segmented into three parts – starting with solo vinyasa, followed by partner inversions, and culminating in acro.
During the acro parts, participants will be grouped into 3s, and they will be rotating between being bases, flyers, and spotters.
With a focus on breathing in movement, strength, and finding balance, this progressive yoga system can bring your practice to new heights, and cultivates trust and community in a powerful way.

Any More Acro Yoga Puns?
No. We just want to tell you that this is really going to be an uplifting experience. Soar to new heights with this workshop, and get a real hands-on session. Don’t worry about not pushing yourself hard enough – we’re here to have everyone push each other a little harder, a little higher. Heighten your sense of community, and elevate your trust in your friends. And you’ll see that when you’re stacked against impossible odds, sometimes – in your most vulnerable positions – you’ll surprise yourself.
High fives all around!
