AcroYoga with Chris Filkins
“Reps & Zen”
Friday November 18, 2016
Westside Acro is back this week with ‘Reps & Zen’ for some new pass the flyer choreos as well as deep training in shoulder stand transitions, more boomarang work, more on spins and maybe, if we have time, a bit of slacker love. Class is all levels but designed to be hard work for all. We build really difficult and challenging poses and transitions in a progressive way so that you can work at your own level to get better at your practice. Get your zen on by learning to breathe in difficult transitions. Build strength through reps until you get muscle failure and the bliss comes for you!
Bring your own sweet self, a mat if you got one, close fitting clothing that is not slippery or has stuff hanging off of it, water for your hydration, and a partner if you got em. But don’t worry if you don’t as we got lots! Everything we do is based on spotting which means we work in 3’s so you can come by yourself or with your partner or even with a whole crew. We support existing partnerships and will never ask anyone to split from their partners. By the same token we know each of us are enriched in our practices by working with different partners so every effort is made to create new and fun ways to work in larger groups. Oh and bring your smiles! We need all we can get!
We’ve moved to a new studio at Create Yoga in Santa Monica! This wonderful space has been very supportive and is full of lovely people. Selah, Marissa, & Jenn are wonderful to work with and very receptive to collaboration. The Westside Acro community pledges to maintain a safe, clean, & responsible shift when we use the studios at Create Yoga. Please do your part.
Be sure to arrive at 745 and please be quiet and respectful as the prior class will just be ending. We monkeys may be loud and rambunctious bunch but we are also respectful of our hosts.
Also please be sure to check in with Malaika when you arrive so we can get started asap. As you know we always have lots of content to explore and the faster we can all get checked in the better for everyone. Please use this link to check in prior and reserve your seat.
