So-called 'Acro yoga' has been around for a while now, but this week sees London welcome the American Acro Yoga team and a chance to see first-hand what all the fuss is about.
If images of leaping around, gizelle-like, on a trapeze spring to mind, take heart: there's more to Acro Yoga than you might think. And, reassuringly, you don't need super-human agility and endurance to give it a go.
It aims to blend the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness of Thai massage and the dynamic power of acrobatics.
The result is a thoroughly modern blend of yoga that seeks to foster trust, connection and playfulness.
And it's not all about pure agility - the technique draws on an unusual mix of pilates, vinyasa and acrobatics.
If this all sounds a tad out of your comfort zone, take heart that it's meant to be fun - I'm assured it involves a lot of giggling.
Still need convincing? Sarah, an Acro fan, says: 'I had a really fantastic experience and because I was having so much fun flying and flying upside down it made me feel like a child again.
'The feeling after the session I could only describe as 'like a rubber ball bouncing within a rubber ball.'
Any adventurous yogis out there? If so, the following info may be of interest:
Two Acro Yoga sessions are scheduled for June 1 at the Vitality Centre at Alexander House - www.vitality-centre.co.uk
If you go along, do report back on how it was for you.
