For someone looking for something exciting and unusual, Acro Yoga is an activity worth investigating. It combines various types of yogic elements such as bandhas (internal locks) dristi (gaze) ujiay breath (sounded breath) and vinyasa flow (synchronization of movement with breath) with acrobatic concepts. In essence, Acro Yoga is more choreographed and more theatrical than other forms of yoga, as it has dance and performance elements.
Acro Yoga is also a very “social” form of yoga. There is a lot interpersonal contact, so it would not be for someone who has an aversion to close human touch. Being ‘in the moment’ and in balance with another person is the essence of Acro Yoga. To watch an Acro Yoga “performance” is entertaining, as it is artistic and trans-like, yet rapid at the same time. To practice it can be described as intense yet fun, challenging yet liberating.
