Therapeutic Flying

I came to Barcelona almost 3 years ago and from that time I also got to know AcroYoga. There is three segments that consists of the AcroYoga practice: acrobatics, therapeutic flying and healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community. When I arrived to Barcelona I didn’t know anybody. Within a week I was already in the Catalonian mountains practicing AcroYoga with great teachers and students that are my closest friends in Barcelona until now. At the beginning the acrobatic part can be a bit of a challenge especially if you don’t practice yoga on a daily basis. That is why today I would like to focus on the Therapeutic Flying. Last week I went to my homeland – Poland. During that trip I met new people. We went caping together to the forest, when they saw me practicing yoga they got a bit curious but didn’t feel like joining. After a while I propose one to try to fly with me. At the beginning I felt a lot of resistance in his body and mind. Folded leaf pose looked rather like a ‘cat that doesn’t want to touch water’. But just after few min the body started to get softer and calmer. And my new friend begun to trust me. I tried some of the variations of Super Yogi and Folded leaf and after about 15 min I put Christopher back on the ground. The peaceful, grateful smile I saw on his face was so worth it. After this he called immediately his girlfriend and asked if I can do this MAGICAL massage to her. And till the end of the day they wouldn’t stop commenting on how amazing they felt afterwards. Therapeutic Flying isn’t only a great bodywork practice where one can benefit from a weightless, inverted and restorative treatment but it also helps induce and create a deep and comforting connection with one’s inner child. It is a great way to make new friends, help each other to relax and let go of any tensions. It is marvellous if you have back or neck pain, or stiffness in the shoulders. This year we can deepen our practice of Flying Therapeutics in Barcelona Yoga Conference with Lorenzo Becchi ! Let’s go to learn, play and share ! See you there !
