AcroYoga in LA - Roots & Leaves

AcroYoga in LA – Roots & Leaves

AcroYoga with Chris Filkins

“Roots & Leaves”

Friday December 2, 2016

Back once again with a renegade master! This week Westside Acro returns with more hard work as we explore rooting down into the ground to foster stability and grow strength. Back to arms this week we will work both up and down and pulling and pressing. Look for a continuation of our recent work with London Spins, plus some new machine work involving holding weight in our arms behind the legs.

Look to be challenged and lifted and spirited away by the end of our time together. It’s going to be a really good time and I for one will be working hard to work off some of the weight I have gained bulking in the hinterlands. Hope you can come!!!

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.

Physical Address is :

2828 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, CA 90404
