The Acro Starter Pack
This series introduces 16 fundamental acro poses for you to start your L-basing acro practice with! We move progressively through what we consider some of the easiest poses to start with into more challenging skills that involve adding height, dynamic entries, removing points of contact and other challenges.
Acro Therapeutics is a practice using acrobatic basing to invert, stetch and traction a flyer. This series takes you through the foundational postures of acro therapeutics as well as some of our favorite variations and transitions. We've also some non-flying bodywork sequences for some grounded therapeutics.
Acro Stepping Transitions
This series covers moving from one static pose to another via stepping transitions where base a flyer work together to change shapes. Sean and Emily explain some of the most common transitions between static acro poses to help take your budding acro practice to the next level.
Intro to Hand to Hand
Hand to hand can refer to the skill of a flyer holding a handstand while the base balances them on their hands, it can also refer to an entire discipline of circus acrobatics that people spend years studying and training. Hand to hand is often one of the most admired skills when people begin practicing acro as it can seem like a posed on for the the most advanced practitioners, quite to the contrary the basics of hand to hand can be explore by many levels of practitioners and it all starts with the desire and the right road map. In this series we explore the drills, progressions and techniques to begin your hand to hand practice safely, efficiently and with a clear idea of how to progress based off of where you are in your acro practice.
Back bird is great variation to play with once you are feeling comfortable with front plank & bird. In this video we explore entrances , exits, alignment, range of motion and spotting.
Back Bird & Bow
This video offers a transition to backbend from the backboard position. This will focus more on a lower back bend and opening for the hip flexors.
Back Bird to Star
This transition gives us a new approach to enter into our star position and also serves as a transition that can be used in lots of different flows and washing machines. In this video we breakdown how to coordinate our bases level change and flyer shape change and movement to make this transition smooth and consistent.
Back Bird to Hand to Hand
Loading in from a back bird is often one of the first load-ins to hand to hand to become accessible. It offers an ability for the flyer to move linearly into their handstand with a clear dismount in case it doesn't wind up perfectly stacked.
