Acro Yoga Workshop

Acro Yoga Workshop

This acrobatic yoga workshop, lead by Rachel and Ulysses, will provide an
opportunity for community, creativity and collaboration.  We honor the value of Ahimsa (non-harming), expressed through open and positive communication.  We seek to share an atmosphere of safety and support in which to explore the multifaceted practice of acrobatic or "Acro" yoga.  We celebrate shattering preconceived ideas of what the human body, mind and spirit is capable of co-creating through the time-honored yet constantly evolving fusion of acrobatic arts with yogic roots.  We strive to assist individuals as they break through personal limitations and embrace personal and community growth.

This workshop is appropriate for all levels.  Come alone or bring a friend or two.  Throughout the workshop we will work in groups of 4.  Periodically, groups will be switched to demonstrate and explore how different bodies lead to different group
results.  The workshop will end with an "acro chat" to break down and share the emotions, breakthroughs, and lessons learned.  

$40 per person / $25 for high school and college students

108 Sun Salutations

Sunday January 1, 2017; 1pm - 3:00pm

Why 108?

108 has been a significant and even a sacred number for a long time, and this number is explained in many different ways.

Just to name a few: 

  • There are 108 beads in a mala (an eastern rosary used both in Hinduism and Buddhism for counting mantras, chants or prayers).
  • There are 54 letters in the Sanskrit alphabet. Each has masculine and feminine, Shiva and Shakti. 54 times 2 is 108.
  • Some say there are 108 feelings, with 36 related to past, 36 related to present, and 36 related to future.
  • This number also connects the Sun, Moon, and Earth: The average distance of the Sun and the Moon to Earth is 108 times their respective diameters.

This powerful yoga practice will be led by multiple instructors and will be done is 3 sets of 36 Sun Salutations with short breaks after each set. Modifications will be offered to make this practice enjoyable for yogis of all levels of experience.
