This series explores partner yoga foundations, flying postures, counterbalances, inversions, and therapeutics. By the end of this series, students will be confident jamming and playing with both the Knoxville Acro Community and their friends. This series is for those who are new both yoga and acro, as well as for those who want to strengthen their knowledge of AcroYoga foundations.
New students are asked to commit the full series, as each session will build on the one from the week before, offering a space to progress more quickly.
