What is Acro Yoga?
Inspired by Cheerleading and Acrobatics – Acro Yoga is a multi-person practice of Yoga revolving around lifting one another up in the air!

Whilst it can be challenging, it is also really fulfilling to work with your friends, family members or partner to successfully achieve various Acro Yoga positions.
A combination of Yoga and Acrobatics, even just saying “Acro Yoga” can sound intimidating – but fret not!
Acro Yoga is something that even beginners can try out with the help of an experienced professional.
Derived from Cheerleading, there are not just 2 – but 3 important roles in Acro Yoga: the “Base”, the “Flyer” and the “Spotter”.
An unseen but essential role, the 3rd person’s “Spotter”’ responsibility is to make sure the “Flyer” lands safely in case of any slips whilst attempting an Acro Yoga position.
