Tricky Acro Balances and Inversions

This series contains some fun and challenging balances for both base and flyer. These shapes can be made possible with patience and persistence. Of course, it does help for many of these poses if the flyer has some experience in how to invert themself, and the base can hold the flyer on one leg.

Handstands on Body Parts

Handstands are challenging wherever you do them, but the most challenging kind of handstands arguably are the ones we do on other human beings because balancing on limbs is way more unstable than the floor, blocks or canes! Here we present a progressive series of handstands on various body parts, ranging from an easy assisted lift to more challenging variations. Don't be discouraged if you aren't nailing these because they definitely take some practice!

Side Star to Whale Flow

We love teaching this flow for so many reasons, it works several different styles of transitions and is scalable to many levels. While beginners can work through this flow with spotting and step by step movements, as you hone your skills this flow can be one of constant movement with multiple options for incorporating tempo work and popping.

Free Reverse Star

Reverse free star can seem like a level up in challenge from regular free star but the principles that make this pose consistent have a great carry over to any other inversion! This pose works with a precise stack & alignment from the flyer while the base works to create balance through a steady foot to shoulder connection.
