The acrobatic branch of AcroYoga empowers students to realize their infinite potential through the dynamic embodiment of acrobatic partnership. Linear progressions and an emphasis on the art of spotting make learning advanced acrobatics safe, accessible, and fun. Confidence and coordination are developed in strength training and inversions, which pave the way for ease and grace in partner acrobatics. Acrobatic flying transitions are trained in groups, where we specialize in the roles of base and flyer for optimum learning curve. After refining foundations, we can train more precise acrobatic work, such as foot-to-hand, hand-to-hand and standing acrobatics. No partner necessary! Students are recommended to have an established yoga practice that includes inversions and backbends or previous experience with AcroYoga.
All Om Factory AcroYoga classes include Acrobatics, except classes listed as Lunar.
The restorative branch of AcroYoga focuses on the healing, relaxing and rejuvenating practices of Thai massage and restorative flying. The Lunar Asana sequence teaches basic body mechanics and with a focus on self-love cultivation, in preparation for the dance of Thai massage. The techniques learned on the floor are then translated to the flying work, using the element of gravity to amplify the healing flow of prana (life force). Often, we will work in teams of three for safety and support, and everyone will have the opportunity to base and fly, heal and be healed. These programs offer invaluable tools for yoga teachers, massage therapists and holistic healthcare practitioners who wish to develop a soothing, compassionate touch when working with students or clients.

Learn the skills to be truly empowered. Basics classes will safely layer acrobatic technique with yogic sensibility. Emphasizing safety through partnership, students will rise into flight and achieve stability through trust and connection. The Basics classes provide students with a great foundation for advancement into Open and then Intermediate level AcroYoga classes. No partner necessary!
Basics Students are encouraged to take the AcroYoga 101 Workshop taught each month on a weekend day. No partner needed.
The Open level classes mix all levels, from beginner to advanced, to playfully support, encourage, and inspire each other as a group. Instructors begin the class creating unity and playful fellowship, then structure the skills for progressive learning. More experienced students mix with the beginners, accelerating their learning curve. Then, each student will find their appropriate learning level. Challenge options are offered for seasoned students; new students are permitted to explore the skills at their comfort level. No partner necessary! Students are recommended to have an established yoga practice that includes inversions and backbends or previous experience with AcroYoga.
Students brand-new to AcroYoga are recommended to begin with BASICS level classes, but are welcome to join in Open.
Intermediate level classes are geared for students experienced with the AcroYoga practice and have an AcroYoga class vocabulary. Are you familiar with a backbird or high flying whale? If not, you’ll want to start with Basics or Open level Acroyoga classes so you can make the most of your Acro experience.
Take your practice to a whole new level by emphasizing the process as much as the postures. Intermediate class teaches skills sequenced to flow elements together elegantly, refining acrobatic transitions, with the aim of a pinnacle flow for each series.
Acrobatic flying transitions are typically trained in groups where we specialize in the roles of base and flyer for optimum learning curve. These specialized acrobatic roles and our emphasis on spotting techniques will empower students to unlock their fullest potential in a safe and supportive environment. No need to bring a partner!
