Facing the fear and learning to fly
Acro Yoga combines the ancient tradition of yoga with acrobatics, just the word acrobatics may make it seem a bit out of reach to the average person but what I have found is it is more about having fun and also having trust in your partner. The idea of sharing this practice with another person is a nice change to traditional solitary yoga practice on a mat. And it's not as complex as you think. Just trust in the moment and move together. You should also be prepared to fall a little and laugh about it.
"If we could make human touch a normal thing. Many troubles would cease to exist. AcroYoga serves as a opportunity to make fun activities as a gateway into our issues around human touch and redefine the way we feel about it." - Anonymous
