Are you ready for an all-day AcroYoga extravaganza?!  Our AcroYoga Flight school is perfect for the AcroYoga beginner, the curious, as well as the seasoned practitioner.  You can come to any* or all three classes:

Flight School:  Sat & Sun, Sept. 23rd-24th

AcroYoga Basic Training, Sat. 23rd; 10:30AM-12:30PM (Studio A, 723 North Lamar Blvd.) :  This class is perfect for beginners or seasoned practitioners who want more experience outside of their usual roles (i.e. flyers can practice basing, and bases can practice flying).  We will work in same size groups on partner conditioning exercises, calibrations, basic mounts, dismounts, and poses. $30 single class

AcroYoga: Solar Practices, Sat. 23rd; 2:30-5:30PM (Studio A): This class will build on the basics from the morning class to prepare us for beginning inversions, flows, and creative acrobatic mounts and dismounts.  Solar AcroYoga is light-hearted, exhilarating, and empowering. $40 single class (*see prerequisite below)

AcroYoga: Lunar Practices, Sun. 24th; 1-3pm (Studio B, 1529 University Ave.):  This class will be the perfect end to a day of hard work and fun! The lunar side of AcroYoga draws on the Thai Yoga Massage tradition and the healing arts.  We will practice Thai flying, where the flyer is passive and receptive while being guided into supported yoga postures.  We will finish with Thai massage sharing. $30 single class

A note from Stevi Self, AcroYoga Instructor: Jeff and I have been practicing AcroYoga together and sharing it with the Oxford yoga community for over 4 years. This practice combines the principles of yoga (such as mindfulness, focus, strength, and flexibility) with the added elements of trust, cooperation and communication through partner work. Through this practice we develop a sensitivity and receptivity that empowers us to trust ourselves and others without fear. Jeff and I strive to make the class environment playful, enjoyable, safe, and supportive. We welcome everyone–even if you think you could NEVER do AcroYoga.  We accept the challenge to prove you wrong!

I completed my certification with AcroYoga.org in Jan. 2016 in Goa, India, and I am excited to share what I’ve learned with you. Come fly with us!
