The hippie twist and easy twist are two of the nicest twists in Acro Yoga. They are part of therapeutic flying; the Thai Yoga massage side of Acro Yoga. Acro Yoga is mostly know for all the spectaculair moves you can do, but there is a soft, therapeutic side to it as well. To be precize: Acro Yoga is a combination of acrobatics, Thai Yoga massage and yoga. Mostly we devide it in solar (acrobatical) and lunar (theraputical). The hippie twist and easy twist are nice ways to take care of your partners body by stretching them deeper than she or he can him/herself. You can do them on their own or as a warming-up or cooling down after a yoga session.
This video wil guide you step by step through both twists. It is wise to start with a spotter up until you find the balance to do both of them on your own.
Enjoy! Be safe.
