All About Whips
In this series, Sean & Emily teach everything you need to get started in your whips practice. A whip is a dynamic L-basing skill where a flyer swings with momentum through positions. This series is designed for acro practitioners who feel very comfortable with static L-basing poses and transitions. In these lessons we explain terminology of whips, body positioning, progressions and self spotting to lead to safe, predictable and stunning whipping skills.
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.
In this video series, Sean and Emily go over 10 connected pops, flyer and base roles, as well as spotting.
Backwards Facing Back Whip
This video breaks down the whip that begins in reverse throne and swings to reverse bird; it is recommended that you have watched the videos on tempo and front swing first.
A really fun and relaxing position for the flyer to just hang out, like a hammock. We enter from the straddle bat position.
Reverse Bird to Foot to Hand Connected Pop
This pop represents a step up in challenge from our previous pops as it incorporates a blind stand and commitment to body position from the flyer, skillful pop and catch from the base and a delicate timing to bring it all together. In this video we breakdown our thoughts on building this into a consistent skill in your toolbox and spotting to assist us in learning and commiting to the movement.
