Acro-yoga is a physical practice which blends elements of yoga, acrobatics, performance and healing arts.
There are three primary roles in an Acro-yoga practice: base, flyer, and spotter.
1. Base – this is the individual who has the most points of contact with the ground. Often this person is lying on the ground with the entire back torso in full contact. This enables both the arms and legs to be “bone-stacked” for maximum stability and support of the Flyer.
3. Flyer – this is the individual who is elevated off the ground by the Base. The Flyer can move into a series of dynamic positions, and generally lets gravity do the work for them. A Flyer needs balance, confidence, and core strength.
4. Spotter – this individual has an objective view of the flyer and base, and whose focus is on safety.
