Acroyoga.


Sunday 18th March

11am—1:30pm

£25

Join Gemma and Jake from Base Acro as they get you moving with acrobatic yoga – or acroyoga!

Acroyoga is a great way to get fit and healthy and challenge yourself mentally and physically and have fun.
Whilst considered a form of yoga, acroyoga differs from traditional yoga in that you work in small groups flowing through a series of poses that involves one, or sometimes a number of individuals being supported by another.
We will take you through a series of postures and flows progressively advancing in difficulty. By the end of the session students will understand the fundamentals of basing, flying and spotting, allowing them to establish their own personal practice outside of the class. For those more advanced students we offer progressive flows.
The session will start with a warm up and mobilization. The main part of the session will consist of learning static acroyoga poses as determined by the experience of the group. We will then work to link these poses in an acroyoga flow. The session will end with partner therapeutics and a cool down.
No experience necessary.
No partner necessary.
Come as you are.

Jake:

In a previous life Jake was a keen rugby player, however he suffered a serious back injury that left him unable to exercise. Adamant to make a full recovery he invested himself in the exploration of movement and his passion for connecting with himself and others through movement grew from there. Jake first started practising acroyoga after moving to Leeds for university 6 years ago. Now, as a fully qualified osteopath, his knowledge of how the body works makes him an exceptional acro teacher. Jake has a passion for helping individuals challenge themselves mentally and physically, whilst working with their natural physique and current skill level.

Gemma:

Gemma first started experimenting with yoga whilst still at school, utilising yogic techniques to manage stress. She went on to study Biomedical Science with a specific emphasis on anatomy. It was whilst at University that her interest in yoga developed into a daily practice and eventually she undertook a Diploma in Teaching Yoga, covering multiple styles of yoga but with a particular focus on the Sivananda discipline. Since moving to Leeds in late 2016 Gemma has been using her passion for both yoga and acroyoga to inspire confidence and encourage people to explore themselves and the world around them. As an acrobatic yoga instructor, handstands are a part of daily life; but when she’s not getting upside down on the mat, you’ll most likely find her up a climbing wall!
