Acro Yoga Sequence

for Beginners

Hello everyone!

If you are reading this, you are likely interested in Acro Yoga. Acro Yoga is a relatively new practice that combines the physical practice of yoga with the dynamics of acrobatics. While it may look intimidating at first, Acro Yoga is a great way to build strength, flexibility and balance. In this sequence, we will focus on some basic poses and transitions that will help you get started with Acro Yoga.

The first pose we will explore is the Downward-Facing Dog (Adho Mukha Svanasana). This pose is a great way to warm up the body and prepare for more challenging poses. To enter into the Downward-Facing Dog, start in Tabletop Position. Place your hands on the floor shoulder-width apart and extend your legs back behind you, pressing your heels into the floor. You should feel a stretch in your hamstrings and calves. Hold this pose for 5-10 breaths.

The next pose we will explore is the Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana). This is a challenging pose, but it is well worth the effort! To enter into the Handstand, start in Downward-Facing Dog. Step your right foot forward between your hands, and then lift your left leg up into the air. Place your left hand on the floor, and extend your right arm straight up into the air. Shift your weight onto your left hand and extend your right leg straight up into the air. Hold this pose for 5-10 breaths.

If you are feeling adventurous, you can try the Crow (Bakasana). This is a challenging pose that requires a lot of strength and balance. To enter into the Crow, start in Mountain Pose. Place your hands on the floor shoulder-width apart and bend your knees. Shift your weight forward and place your feet on the inside of your hands. Extend your arms and legs straight out in front of you. Engage your core and hold this pose for 5-10 breaths.

The final pose we will explore is the King Pigeon (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana). This is a deep hip opener that can be quite challenging. To enter into the King Pigeon, start in Downward-Facing Dog. Step your right foot forward between your hands and raise your left leg up into the air. Bend your left knee and place your left foot behind your right ankle. Place your hands on the floor in front of you and extend your spine. Hold this pose for 5-10 breaths.

These are just a few of the basic poses that you can explore in Acro Yoga. Be sure to consult a yoga teacher or an Acro Yoga instructor to learn more about this fun and challenging practice.
