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.
Throne pose (sometimes called straddle throne) is one of the fundamental building blocks of acro. We'll dive into this pose from top to bottom - from the basics of regular throne to monos, reverse throne, and some transitions!
Straddle Throne Variations
Straddle Throne is a great position to work with because its one of the first L-basing poses where we can can start to explore flyer shape changes, jumping entrances and transitions to other poses.
Throne from Bird
Here's a slightly more advanced entry into throne: coming from bird. You may already have intuitively practiced this transition but in this tutorial we break down the precise steps that need to happen to make it work! Skill demonstration 1:37
Thinker (Mono Throne)
Here is a more advanced version of throne - a one-sided or "mono" pose! This will challenge the flyer's core strength as well as the base's ability to keep their leg in the center line of the body. Skill demonstration 1:23
