Yoga and Acrobatics

Indulge your adventurous side with AcroYoga, a playful form of yoga that mimics some concepts of acrobatics. Class begins with everyone in a circle exchanging names and introductions to break the ice. Then students work with partners, first mirroring each other's poses, then using their bodies to provide support in inversions like head and shoulder stands and in flying poses -- where one partner becomes the base while the other is the flier.

Co-founder and instructor Jenny Sauer-Klein wanted something fun and safe for a new generation of acrobats as well as for adventurous people. "A wide range of people do AcroYoga," says Sauer-Klein. "From ex-gymnasts to people who have never done yoga and want to play. They want to relate to other people. I think that's the common denominator."

Don't get discouraged if you think your bones will get in the way of doing AcroYoga. "Anyone who comes to this class can do this on some level," says Sauer-Klein. "It's not about being really strong or flexible; it's about coming with an openness to learn, to try."
