AcroYoga Base Test
Authored by: Jessica Schultz
Poses 3a and 3b teach the base to stay steady when the flyer lifts off.
BASE Stay on your back, stacking your feet over your hips.
FLYER Cross your forearms and stack them onto the base’s feet. You can make eye contact with your base to establish trust.
BASE: If your legs are too long compared with your flyer’s height, bend knees as necessary.
FLYER Press your folded arms into your base’s feet and lift your legs off the ground.
BASE Straighten your legs into a 90-degree or L shape, stacking your feet over your hips for stability.
BASE: If your legs are tight and you can’t straighten them, try placing a folded blanket under your pelvis. Keep your knees slightly bent, with your heels directly over your hips.
