What is Acro Yoga?
Originating in San Francisco, this form of yoga establishes yin and yang through the fusion of gentle movements found in traditional yoga, acrobatics, and Thai massage.
Acro Yoga is meant to be enjoyed in pairs, but there must be three people in a practice session. It is also referred to as the “yoga of connection” from it strengthening you and your partner by enabling you to form a connection with others, help each other, and support each other, in both mind and body.

The benefits of Acro Yoga
Its basic benefits of strengthening muscles and increasing flexibility are accompanied by connection and love felt through physical contact with each other.
Solar and Lunar
It is comprised of the elements of yang and yin, with its acrobatic “Solar” practices and therapeutic “Lunar” practices.
In Lunar practice sessions, you can experience the maximum effects of healing, such as loosening up your body through massages that utilize the whole body, relieving muscle tension, and releasing energy, while making physical contact.
In Solar practice sessions, you increase your energy, strengthen muscles, and improve your flexibility. You can also firmly feel your center of balance from being in unstable positions, correct imbalances, and understand how to properly utilize your body.
