There is a wonderfully packed schedule of yoga classes at Arise festival, and this year Sunshine will be teaching an Introduction to AcroSage, with the creator of the technique, Benjamin Marantz, featuring beats by Moon Frog.
AcroSage is an acrobatic massage sequence that simulates soul rebirth. Elements in this massage work include reflexology, sound healing and traction alignment. It is similar to an interactive and dynamic partnered AcroYoga and unique in that one person plays an active and supportive role while the other surrenders and receives. In this class, we will be exploring 5 simple, yet profoundly therapeutic holding positions to guide “the flyer” and “the base” through a safe and empowering experience. This restorative “AcroYoga-like” class is designed to slow down the mind, release blocks and nurture the soul. Other side effects include spontaneous laughter, a feeling of lightness and emotional liberation.
