Looking for a yoga class you and a friend can enjoy together?  If you REALLY trust your friend…this might be for you!

Kimberly Chou reports today on www.seattlepi.com about a somewhat surprising yoga offer – a practice that combines yoga, acrobatics and Thai massage.

Postures involve two or more people, with one grounded partner (“the base”) supporting the other (“the flier”) in the air, and a spotter for more challenging positions. In one posture, the base lies on his back with his feet together up in the air; the flier balances his hips on top of the base’s feet as his hands reach back for his ankles, pulling up into dhanurasana, or “bow.”

Some Seattle studios that have these classes:

  • Samadhi Yoga, 1205 E. Pike St.; 206-329-4070
  • Acro Yoga Seattle (private instruction); 206-371-2870
  • Om Yoga, 15230 N.E. 24th St., Redmond; 425-587-1547
  • To learn more about Acro Yoga, find classes in your region or perhaps a retreat, a good source is AcroYoga at http://www.acroyoga.org/.
