The Art and Science of AcroYoga...
"AcroYoga is a movement practice that combines the balance and connection of yoga, the fitness and intensity of acrobatics, and the holistic healing power of physical therapy.
"People come to it for all kinds of reasons—they may have chronic pain and are looking for a long-term solution to manage it; they may want to lose weight, gain muscle, or increase their mobility; or maybe they want to deepen their relationships through the practice. Some do AcroYoga just to have fun!
"In Move, Connect, Play, Jason Nemer, founder of AcroYoga International, shares the core principles of AcroYoga for athletic performance and for life, as well as 10 key areas of training to build your practice: strength, flexibility, technique, balance, breath, inversions, relationships, the mind, emotional intelligence, and sustainability. He also offers specific exercises and routines for safely and effectively training in each area.
"This is a book that millions of AcroYogis around the world have long been waiting for, and one that is an essential read for high-performing athletes, business professionals, weekend health warriors, spiritual seekers, and everyday people alike."
