Soon we are heading towards the homeland of our favorite “Acro”, which turns Yoga into extremity of joy. Did you know that the word we use daily comes from the ancient Greek ἄκρος, meaning: highest, furthest, the limit of something? From ancient Greek it entered modern Latin, obtaining extra nuance: first, pointed, sharp, tip, peak.
So, if you’ve ever wondered what hints the prefix in words as: acrobatics, acrophobia, acrolect (the most prestigious variety of a language), acromegaly, acronym & so on, now you know.
Still, if you are not an Acro freak and you are just starting to fall in love with this most vigorous Yoga practice, you may be curious to know that it dates as far back as the beginning of the 20th century. There is a footage from 1938, featuring the Father of the modern Yoga — Tirumalai Krishnamacharya – holding a child, who’s executing asanas. Ever since this partner based acrobatic practice is constantly changing and nowadays it’s officially described as a combination of Yoga, acrobatics & Tai massage.
During our voyage we shall have Acro Yoga classes & jams daily.
