Acroyoga – Flying in Chiang Mai
One of the many things I love about Chiang Mai is the amount of yoga there is. Excellent yoga teachers from all over the world often stop here on their route around the globe. Over the weekend I attended an AcroYoga workshop. AcroYoga is a cross between acrobatics and yoga. The person on the ground is the base, there is usually a person spotting, and the person in the air is the flyer. As is probably evident from these pictures, flying is my favorite.
The first day of the workshop was acrobatic style flying. Unfortunately, I do not have many pictures from this day as everyone in the room was either a base, spotter, or flyer. Since AcroYoga tends to draw some attention, these pictures were taken by a random person looking in.
It takes balance, and coordination with the base, and trust.
The next day was more the therapeutic style of AcroYoga
Therapeutic AcroYoga is quite similar to Thai massage, but all of your weight is suspended. It feels so good.
Then, during break it was time for playing in the pool.
Mostly, AcroYoga is tons of fun.
