Handstands are the foundational movement of acrobatics. In this class, we will work through the essential conditioning and drills to take your handstand practice to the next level. Class will begin with around thirty minutes of warm up and conditioning to develop the strength and flexibility necessary to find your handstand with ease. Once our bodies are prepped we will work through drills to refine alignment, entrances, and exits in the handstand as well as touch on techniques for pressing and shape changing.
Intro to AcroYoga:
Acro Yoga is a form of partner yoga that blends the practices of yoga, thai massage, and partner acrobatics. These three lineages form the foundation of a unique practice that cultivates trust, connection, and playfulness. Built upon the framework of cultivating skillful partnership, AcroYoga provides a vehicle to explore positive and supportive relationships with an emphasis on honest, clear and compassionate communication. In each class we will explore the roles of the base, flyer and spotter.
This is YOUR free time! Practice what you've learned in class or try something new. AcroYoga Jams are a freestyle playground. We will create space for you to ask questions and receive feedback in areas of the practice that most interest you. *Please note that this is an open workout and not a guided class.

THE ADVANCED ONE
Warrior Bridge is excited to reintroduce the Acro Warrior Teacher Training in a new modular format this Fall. Over the course of our 4-day modules, we will break down, practice, and refine skills from across the spectrum of acro practice. Each module will consist of technique refinement, conditioning, teaching practice, lectures, and group discussions to cultivate you into becoming a skillful acro teacher. We will offer you the tools necessary to create intelligent warm ups, cue clearly and confidently, and prepare well thought out progressions and modifications. Our training will focus on developing your personal movement practice through handstands, flexibility training, acrobatic conditioning, and other movement arts. The modules can be attended individually to develop your personal knowledge and understanding or as a complete program to receive an acro teacher certification. Trainees enrolled in the complete training will be given assignments in and out of the studio between modules to further develop the skills necessary to become successful teachers and community leaders.
Training will be co-led by Sean Langhaus & Emily Lesinski with additional sessions led by Mendel Romanenko, Bassam Kubba, Laura Lebron and graduates of past Acro Warrior Teacher Trainings.
