We are excited to bring out old friend Brian Lam to Gloucester for TWO fun trainings this Sunday, May 6. You can do either training, or really treat yourself and do both! You can come alone or bring friends, there will be plenty of great people to work with.
INTRO TO ACROBATICS 11:00AM-1:00PM
Using time-tested acrobatic training techniques, students will learn skills that enhance their personal inversion practice, before learning how to incorporate acrobatics in partner work. Students will learn how to combine basic flying positions with inversions to create dynamic flying flows. Brian will demonstrate techniques for bases, flyers and spotters that will keep the flying safe, supported, and fun. This workshop will begin with acrobatic training techniques, building into progressions and foundations for Partner Acrobatics. We will then move into creative expression and refinement with Acrobatic flying transitions. No previous AcroYoga experience is required, although a familiarity and comfort with a supported handstand is recommended.
THERAPEUTICS AND THAI MASSAGE 2:00PM-4:00PM
Therapeutic flying and Thai Massage are the practices that hone an AcroYogi’s ability to be sensitive and receptive. The flow of basing and flying, giving and receiving, honoring and accepting, inhaling and exhaling will take both yogis into a new place of union and bliss. We will use Flying and Thai Massage techniques to provide release to the entire body, the perfect complement to a strong yoga or acrobatics practice. This workshop will enhance the ability to connect deeper with one’s physical touch and being able to read another body, perfect for yoga teachers who want to improve their assisting skills. No previous AcroYoga experience is required, although a regular yoga practice is recommended.
Brian loves to bring a playful spirit to his classes and share from his heart with all communities he connects with. Brian is a certified AcroYoga teacher, having completed both Level 1 and Level 2 teacher training with founder Jason Nemer. Brian is also a certified Baptiste Power Yoga teacher, having completed Level 1 and 2 with Baron Baptiste. Brian is drawn to the practice of AcroYoga because it allows the playfulness in each of us to shine bright. The balance of acrobatics, Thai massage and yoga do wonders to heal not only our bodies, but our hearts and our minds as well. Brian loves to travel nationally and internationally to connect with new communities and share the gift of AcroYoga.
