How to do Prasarita Twist in Acro Yoga (video tutorial)

One of the most beautiful twists in Acro Yoga is Prasarita Twist. But how to do this twist correctly? I can remember starting with it. I had done it, once, during a workshop, but it was at the end and things went pretty fast. Whenever I tried to do it, I would just drop people or they had to be rescued by spotters. Slowly I got the hand of it, but success would be on and off. Simply because I was missing details.

Well at least; that’s what I found out when I went to the Dutch Acro Yoga festival – PaasCro –  and my fantastic teacher – and by now good  friend – Esther Hertog showed me how to do it correctly. I discovered I missed one detail, but in Acro Yoga details make the difference.

Prasarita Twist tutorial

In this Prasarita Twist tutorial I will guide you through all the steps you have to take as a base to do this twist. As a flyer you mainly want to be passive. Just wait for your base to give you the cue to let go of your foot.

Have fun, be safe!
