Acro yoga: what the heck is it? with Sylana Gatane

Who can do it? How do you start playing with it, and what kinky things can you use it for? These are the exciting questions we will ask and answer, in this beginner-friendly introductory class!

We'll start by demonstrating what acro yoga looks like, and how rope bondage can be happily incorporated into an acro yoga practice. But why stop there? It's a big beautiful kinky world -- there's more you can do with partner acrobatics than just adding rope.

Kinky or vanilla, acro yoga is fantastic fun! But acrobatic movement arts – like so many BDSM activities -- carry certain risks. So we'll talk about how to learn acro yoga safely, if it tickles your inner RAWR, and give you the tools to pursue RACA (Risk Aware Consensual Acro). And we'll also explore the areas where acro etiquette follows or diverges from standard BDSM social expectations, so you'll be comfortable going to an acro event and jumping right into the fun.

If you'd like to try it yourself, the last portion of the class will be volunteer-friendly: try flying or basing some simple poses with one of us. S ee how it feels to rise above it all on someone else's feet -- or be the powerhouse holding it all together! Finally we'll make sure you have the tools and resources to pursue it further, if acro yoga – kinky or otherwise-- seems like a thing that makes you go HMMM.

And once you glimpse the possibilities acro yoga can offer, for exploring lovely joyful things... well, if there's enough community interest in follow-up educational opportunities... who knows what kinky acro classes might be scheduled next?! ;)


Sylana Gatane is an ardent acro yoga fiend, with a fetish for kinkifying perfectly nice respectable movement arts. She's also an enthusiastic rope bottom who often seems to delight in making things harder for herself than they need to be – and these passions coalesce perfectly in the practice of acro shibari. Sylana serves as organizer for a private acro shibari practice group (whose members will assist with class presentation), and moderates the 'DC Acro Kinksters' group on Fetlife. She also organizes vanilla acro yoga events in Montgomery County, and loves seeing people light up when they discover the joyful practice (and pervertability!) of acro yoga.
