  • Instructor: Satu Luoma
  • Language of instruction: Finnish
  • Acroyoga is a sport based on partner acrobatics which develops body control, strength, balance, flexibility - and the muscles you use to laugh! In acroyoga, static poses are combined so that the base (on the floor on their back) lifts with their arms and/or legs the flyer (in the air). Everybody succeeds in something already during the first class but challenges are never ending!

    During the basic course we get to know basic poses and their variations, as well as combinations of the basic poses, called flows. You don't need to have previous experience in acrobatics, and you don't need to be any kind of superman to attend. If you can walk you can do acro! If you have tried acroyoga a couple of times before, you'll still find challenges during this basic course.

    The practice will be done in groups of three, changing the roles and the groups. You don't need your own partner or group in order to attend the course! The drills are safe when they are done according to given instructions and when attendees take care of each other's safety.

    Tight and flexible clothes are the most suitable clothing for this sport. Training mats are provided. Please, leave all jewelry at home.
