AcroYoga VS AYFit

logo2

AcroYoga blends the wisdom of Yoga, the dynamic power of Acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts.  It is a great practice for the mind, the body and the soul.  Depending on the teacher the classes vary from being more or less Acrobatic, Yogic or therapeutic.  In some places like the AcroYoga community in Boston the focus is on Acrobatics & skillful flowing tricks in others groups such as the community in Bali the classes are more spiritual & healing based.

AcroYoga has 2 main elements:

  • Acrobatic (Solar) Practice, this cultivates trust, empowerment and joy.
  • Healing Arts (Lunar ) Practice, this cultivate listening, loving and letting go.

Yoga BamBam has 2 weekly AcroYoga classes in Hong Kong. The classes at Yoga BamBam tend to be Elemental, a mix between Acrobatics, Yoga and Healing Arts.

AYfit  blends Fitness with AcroYoga it is a fast paced strengthening class designed to build smart muscles. Students train with partners & in groups with acrobatic body weight exercises. Instead of lifting dumb weights in the gym the students lift intelligent people in a group class. They use each others body weight to create endurance, agility & strength. Acrobatic training is taught in easy to follow reps & circuits at the appropriate level of each participant. The Peak pose near the end of the AYfit session is an AcroYoga  pose. This pose  is held for 30 seconds to 5 minutes depending on the pose. The students can increase the difficulty of their session by lifting heavier partners or same size partners or progressing to the next skill level.

AYfit is targeted at sports & fitness enthusiasts who want to spice up their training program. It was created by Jason Nemer the Co Founder of AcroYoga.  AYfit has many AcroYoga positions in it however the Yogic element of AcroYoga  has been taken out or heavily subdued. AYfit  caters towards CrossFit participants, people who don’t do Yoga or your average guy in the gym. However AYfit is a perfect complement to AcroYoga, Yoga & Aerial arts as it is a full body balanced intelligent workout.

The high energy classes are filled with laughter and challenging exercises.  The playfully physical classes are 45 – 60 minutes long & end with stretches that are suspiciously very similar to Yoga poses without the New Age jargon.

AYfit &  AcroYoga are available at Yoga BamBam & in Hong Kong for Corporate Team Building events.
