Silly question Joe but do we have dates for AcroCamp 2015?!

Joe Yonek Nothing silly about that....

It's July 30, 31, August 1 & 2, 2015

Make your plans now.... 

22 Skills.... do you have them? Thanks to Aaron Lind & Co

Many thanks to Aaron Lind and Co!

Great Vid and work, do you have these 22 skills?
If you don't. Find an experience teacher. 
(With lots of flight & teaching time, 500 hrs? or more. Ask them...)
Can't say enough about skill building, or Spotting.
Read the preamble, twice ...

Flight Test (An Experiment)

Happy Summer! 

~O~

Hope every one is getting all the Acro they need! Life is short, play, live, play!

If not, and your in Madison, Wi check out our Classes, Practice, and Jam links.  New classes posted yesterday.

If you are in the Midwest area this weekend, Joe is hosting the 3rd annual  Midwest AcroCamp!

~o~

So for the next few months we are going experiment with a newish thing at: Mayfly & AcroYogaMadison.org

Called 'Flight Test'!

Below is copy that talks about it. We are excited to formally try this over the next few months.

But a question before we sign off... "Have you huged your Spotter today?"

Fly safe, Fly often, don't go bump your head or noggin. 

~O~

Flight test assess skill and experience level in spotting, basing, flying, & nomenclature. 
~~~
What is MayFly & AcroYogaMadison.org?
And why do we ask you to take a flight test before attending our weekly practice group?
We are a practice group. We meet weekly to practice intermediate and advanced AcroYoga, other movement, and therapeutic practices. In order to allow our weekly time slot to be a practice time, we have made the basic training a separate offering; Basic Class: Level 1. It’s not that we don’t want new folk to attend- we love having new folks join us, but we need them to have a foundation, and skill vocabulary to start practicing & participating without taking away from our own desire to jam.
~~~
Ok, so you’d like to try the Flight Test? 
The test is listed below.
The test covers: All three skills, and assana names.
Duration: 10-15 mins. 
Flight Test:  base/fly/spot & naming
  • Folded leaf:  Reverse Batacanasana, Super Yogi
  • Bird: free bird, bird droppings (push ups)
  • Box press, Throne press
  • High flying whale
You may be ready to take the flight test if you have had…(?)
~More then 20 hours flight time in an open Acro Jam elsewhere in the last 12 months.
~In the last 12 months taken a formal fundamentals Acro Workshop(s)/Class(s) totalling 6 hours or more. (Any Lineage) 

At completion I may ask you to take the level 1 class before attending our weekly practice time(s).

Contact 
Richard if your interested in setting up a test.
To register for an up coming class: 
Basic Class: Level 1.
