DYNAMIC ENTRY: in this class, the keyword will be dynamism!! Amazing and interesting entries you can use in performance or just to have fun looking for new balances. In some cases, the dynamic entry will follow a short flow with different challenges
POP and ICARIAN GAMES: when you feel the adrenaline coming up over your hair when you realize that something fantastic has happened, that’s an icarian game. This technique resembles the pops (minor brothers of the icarian games) except that after the launch, there is no contact between the base and the flyer. They are usually spectacular to see too.
We will teach several pops and Icarians and also a washing machine that includes an icarian, a pop and a whip … the attention you may become addicted to it !!!
WHIPS are dynamic movements of advanced l-base practice! They are very beautiful to look at, stimulating to learn and exciting to perform! A whip is a very precise and fast rotary movement, but we will also teach you how to do it in a slow, fluid and safe way.
We assure you that when you are able to do it slowly without using your hands, you have the technique to enjoy the speed !! In order to master a whip, the partners have to create and exploit the momentum! A whip is a magical result of being highly synchronized!
In this workshop, we will provide you with different exercises and progressions to learn the specific base and flyer technique. Whips require advanced spotting skills, so learning how to be a Ninja spotter will be one of the points we will focus on in this class.
WASHING MACHINES: we will teach some very special washing machines that emphasize the fluidity and particular transitions. Attention! It will not lack precarious balances and rapid steps to make these hours exciting and tricky!
The Program could change according to the level of the participants and the energies of the group! This is just to be sure that this event will be as fun and balanced as possible.
These workshops are designed for 2 levels of practice:
Beginners level and Intermediate/advanced level.
To take part in the Intermediate group you need to have these
Side star -Ninja Star – Foot to Hand (even with a spotter)
For those who are advanced in their practice, it will be our pleasure to add pepper to make the practice enough exciting and challenging!
For those who do not yet have the pre-req but want to start experimenting with pops and whips, we will form a beginners group and give exercises calibrated for their level in order to make everyone’s participation fun and satisfying.
These workshops are not for who have never tried acro yoga.
