We’ve designed this program as 4 weeks of focused acroyoga training - each week with a specific focus. We’ll start with Baseline training, then move into Transitions, Range Of Motion (ROM), and finish with Asymmetrical/Mono Limb. Each week you’ll receive a training document which outlines Acro Warm Up, Acro Drills, Longholds, Challenges, and a Flow to piece it all together. This document will be accompanied by a video showing all of the postures and drills. We’ve designed this training to challenge you & level up your practice. A few things to touch on before we get started..
Warm-Up: we’ve included a short acro focused warm up in each week’s training. You know your body best, and if you know you need extra warm up before you get started with the drills please take the time to give your body what it needs!
Reps: the reps listed in each drill are a recommendation. These can be and will be modified by each partnership. We’re looking for these reps to be clean and controlled - we would much rather see 2 clean controlled reps than 6 out of control, sloppy reps.
Long Holds: we LOVE long holds for 3 reasons: they expose technical weaknesses that will only be shown through staying in a posture for 30-60 seconds, they build functional strength and stamina for your practice, and they’re fun :) Again, the times are recommendations and we encourage you to modify as you need.
Challenge Moves: these postures and movements are designed to challenge you. Remember the Rule of Three (explained below) when attempting these challenges. If you succeed, take a video and post it in the facebook group to inspire and help the others.
Flow: the end of each training includes a flow to piece everything together. Drilling the basics make the flows much more accessible and attainable in your practice. Be patient, cultivate strong communication with your partner, and post a video with your progress!
Spotters: we understand that many of you (including us) practice the majority of the time without spotters. There will be drills and flows which challenge you during this 4 weeks, so please save anything you don’t feel comfortable with until you have a spotter.
The Rule Of Three: this philosophy is a massive part of our personal practice. By implementing it without exception, we’ve seen a level up in our practice and a lack of injury. The rule of 3 goes like this: try something a maximum of 3 attempts. If you don’t find success in those 3 attempts, either pause and have a conversation with your partner about what you’re both going to change, or come to an easier drill/posture that you know you’re comfortable with, find success 3 times, then return to the original drill.
Above all else, we want you to have FUN. A lot of fun. And we want you to feel challenged and safely pushed out of your comfort zone. Once you have the training doc and videos, you have them for life, meaning you can come back to them over and over.
You’ll be added to a Facebook group with everyone else that is signed up for the training so you all can collaborate, train together, ask questions to other and us, and support one another.
Enjoy! And be safe :)
