Whale to Throne
In this video we review how to transition from high flying whale to to throne . This is one of the first transitions we teach our acro students as it teaches lots of useful concepts such as how flyers transfer weight, bases learn how to use level changes to enable the flyer to move with ease and how to spot the skill when beginning to work with it.
Acroyoga Chair (Safe Exit Strategies)
Here we learn how to safely exit the chair pose in multiple directions. It's good to practice your "emergency" down ahead of the actual emergency. Please watch all the way through before attempting these exits.
In this video we explore throne or chair pose. This a great pose to find your stability and mobility as a base. In this video we explore entrances , exits, alignment, range of motion and spotting.
When I first started learning acro this was one of my favorites. It's fun, it's silly, and it's actually quite safe for beginners! As a base, you can really dial in the complexities of the feet, and my personal favorite benefit- it's basically giving you a sneaky flexibility boost. As the flyer, know that your feet are much much closer to the ground than your head (it can feel extra scary up there but in reality you're quite close to the floor!).
