AwkroYoga - Advanced Awkwardness
By Za Ra & Matt Schnuth
LET'S GET RIDICULOUS...If it's not allowed to be pretty, could it be... genius?
AwkroYoga™ has given millions the permission to make ugly shapes and laugh until they snotty cry while doing it.
This year, we are back to teach "Advanced Awkwardness", furthering the bad, the weird and the uncomfortable that we birthed at last year's fest. Forget what you know about Acro. Create Awkro.
Basing AND/OR flying star, foot to shin, back plank, any L-basing flow.
DEFINITELY not for beginners. Advanced Awkwardness requires a foundation in AcroYoga so that we can learn the rules before we break them.
