Acroyoga is a yoga of exchange, trust and connection, in which asanas (yoga postures) and acrobatic movements are performed by 2 or 3 people or in groups. This mix between acrobatics and yoga is not new. In the 1930s, there were already yoga masters who made their students fly. But Acroyoga as we know it today was created by Acroyoga Montréal in 1999. In 2003, Acroyoga International, in San Francisco, added Thaï massage to the practice.
Unlike yoga, where the terms are in Sanskrit, in Acroyoga, the common language is English. So, it doesn’t matter where you are going to practice Acroyoga: as long as you communicate in English, you will be able to get along with the other practitioners. It is important to note that communication is a crucial element for the participant’s connection and security, because some postures can be very challenging.
