AcroYoga with Chris Filkins
“Pass the Flyer Games”
Friday January 2, 2015
Westside Acro is back after a really fun jam last week! I hope everyone’s New Years has been amazing!
This week we are going to explore multi-person machines and transitions and play with lots of techniques and notions surrounding pass the flyer. If you don’t know pass the flyer involves more than one base and/or more than one flyer working towards freedom of exploration and movement through improv. This week we will get a bunch of stuff going up in the air and work towards greater strength and facility whether in the air or on your back.
Please come! Be prepared to work hard and play hard and do a lot of sweating. Please bring a mat and some water and a partner if you got em. If you don’t, don’t worry as we got partners to spare!
Class is $15 for 1.5 hours of instruction followed by 1.5 hours of jam.

About Westside Acro
We offer beginning and intermediate to advanced adagio focusing on L based acrobatics and low standing work also commonly known as Acro Sport or Partner Yoga on the west side of Los Angeles including the communities of Santa Monica, Venice, West LA, Brentwood, Culver City, Topanga. Our passion is circus style machines and poses. We do AcroYoga for the intermediate in classes held on Friday nights from 8-11. We hold the space for 3 hours and present the most challenging content in Southern California during that period. It’s like a workshop each week for the price of a class. We do AcroYoga for the beginner at noon Saturday at Veda Yoga Center in Culver City CA.
Cost is $18 for both the class and any jam which may follow.

Westside Acro is strenuously agnostic in choosing teachers to represent in our studios in Los Angeles. We serve as a home for Acro Revolution in Los Angeles. We bring in AcroYoga Montreal teachers and follow them just as we do the best teachers from AcroYoga.org. The goal is more monkeys and the best teachers.
