ACROVINYASA™ takes yoga from earth to air. Uniting elements of vinyasa, acroyoga and inversion training, this practice cultivates trust and community in a powerful way. The core of ACROVINYASA™ is focused on synchronizing breath in movement, building strength and finding balance. Inspired by traditional yoga asanas and L-based acrobatic flying, this progressive yoga system includes both solo and partner practice. The aerial part revolves around one partner (the base) supporting the other (the flyer) in flying through the air in a sequenced series of yoga postures. Bringing a refreshingly playful approach to an ancient tradition, ACROVINYASA™ feels more like a dance with gravity than physical excercise. Getting inverted with a partner is very empowering especially for people who may be fearful of supporting or being supported by others. 

 

The necessary component for students learning the practice for the first time is the role of a spotter, who makes sure both base and flyer stay safe and properly aligned. The base lies flat on their back supporting the flyer's weight with extended legs and arms. When students learn proper stacking (vertical bone alignment), they can start balancing more than just their own weight. Regular practice and proper technique allows even a smaller person to skilfully base a larger flyer. This practice derives techniques from traditional yoga streams with the intent to build meaningful human connection within a global community. Learning to trust, clearly communicate and give & receive are some of the deeper benefits. In short, ACROVINYASA™ offers a dynamic expansion beyond your solo practice. 

 

We have systematically organised this practice into two flows LEVEL 1 and LEVEL 2 consisting of 180 postures (90 yoga and 90 acro). We share the practice not only in classes and workshops around the world, but also with our global online community through our daily #ACROVINYASA Instagram Challenge. Follow us on Instagram @YogaBeyond and @ACROVINYASA and join in on the fun!

 

Our vision is to inspire elevated state of being within both individual and collective consciousness. Our aim is to mentor and certify passionate teachers who will continue spreading this practice in their local communities. We invision ongoing ACROVINYASA classes taught in yoga studios around the world, inspiring students and teachers to connect, trust and play, expanding their solo yoga practice beyond the mat and into the air.  Our ACROVINYASA™ Teacher Training presents a complete roadmap to prepare teachers in leading classes and workshops around the world. We invite you to join us on a journey of yoga evolution.

 

 

This flow covers 90 asanas (45 yoga & 45 acro) and introduces a wide variety of postures and transitions, originating from both the yoga and acrobatic traditions. Every air asana moves seamlessly from one to the next creating a continuous sequence. The yoga postures prepare the mind, body and spirit to take flight with ease, building strong foundation on the earth first, and creating an imprint in your muscle memory and cellular system. This translates into a greater understanding of how to work with another body as well as your own. Suitable for all levels of experience and ability. You begin from where you are and learn, that in partnership there is always room to grow and expand. Review Level 1 flow below followed by Level 2.

This flow covers 90 new asanas (45 yoga & 45 acro) and encompasses the full spectrum of Level 1 with an added level of challenge and technical difficulty. The yoga postures prepare the mind, body and spirit to take flight with ease, building strong foundation on the earth first, and creating an imprint in your muscle memory and cellular system. Taking familiar shapes into new transitions, some from feet to hands, this entire sequence offers an opportunity to improve and advance the skill level for the base, flyer as well as the spotter. A variety of new postures are introduced with the focus on inversion practice and more dynamic transitions. Suitable for practitioners who have mastered Level 1 sequence and are ready to expand. Get ready to flip your world upside down!

ACROVINYASA™ tested by 3x Olympic swimming gold medalist Stephanie Rice at YogaBeyond School.

 

Stephanie Rice is in da house!!! Say whaaaat?!?!!! We had the pleasure of welcoming the 3x Olympic gold medalist to our yoga school for a test drive of ACROVINYASA™. Steph is currently producing a web series about health and fitness for her new website www.stephanierice.com, and asked us to film an episode with her. We had such a blast with this swimming superstar! She rocked her vinyasa practice, nailed a handstand and had way too much fun flying for the very first time. Well done Steph!

Acro in its many forms is a practice that has been around possibly for as long as yoga itself. It has reached the worldwide community in recent years and we are excited to see it branch out into a variety of streams. We believe that there is always room for expansion and we have already witnessed it within the global teaching kula. With ACROVINYASA™, AcroYoga US, AcroYoga Montreal and AcroRevolution teacher trainings, as well as many others happily co-existing, sharing and evolving, it serves as great confirmation that the acro community is here to stay within its various modalities.
