Q: Do I need a partner?
A: Nope! AcroYoga is a great way to meet others to play. We work in groups of 3 or 4 so you will be grouped up with others in class.
Q: Do I have to work with other people if I bring my own partner?
A: AcroYoga is best taught and learned in community! We love friends and loved ones to join in the fun to start an AcroYoga practice. In the class setting we teach in groups of 3-4 to ensure safety and empower each individual to learn how to base, fly and spot. Though you may choose to only base or fly in class, spotting is not optional. Couples interested in working solely together may be interested in private sessions with Jen or Austin instead of the class setting. In short, yes you may work with a chosen partner but you will also work with another individual or pair so that there is always a spotter for your safety and growth as a practitioner.
Q: Can I come to an All-Levels class or Level I if I've never done AcroYoga before?
A: Absolutely! We teach to brand-new beginners each week. As a group we will explore foundational skills together. There are no pre-requisites to attend.
Q: Can I come to a Level 1.5 or Level II class if I've never been to an All-Levels/Level I class?
A. The short answer is NO. For your safety and the safely of others in the class, we expect every student to have the same foundational level of skills in basing, flying AND spotting. We would like to know your practice from workshops or classes you have attended with us before you attend a Level 1.5 and then Level II class. We have prerequisite skills you must have in your practice before you move up a level. Please talk to Jen at a class or jam to find out if you are ready! If you are visiting from out of town with a strong AcroYoga practice, please email or message us before you attend.
Q: Do I need to sign up in advance for classes and jams?
A: No, we do not have an online registration for our classes and jams at Kompound Training or class at Movement. Please arrive to any class or workshop before the start time!
Q: Is a jam a free class?
A: No. A free jam in the park or a $5 jam in a gym are not free or cheap classes. AcroYoga is best learned by doing- a jam is an opportunity to work on what you have been learning in classes and workshops with others in the community. The teachers present are there to ensure safety, answer questions and play.
Q: Where are the classes and how much do they cost?
A: See the "Schedules" page for monthly classes, workshops and jams as well as class descriptions, prices, and locations.
