AcroYoga Comes to Princeton on August 5th


Princeton, New Jersey, August 1st, 2017 – The non-profit Princeton Integral Yoga Community Center (IYCC) ended the month of July as Lululemon Princeton’s Studio-of-the-Month with a large gathering on the Palmer Square Green on Sunday July 30th, where nearly 50 people gathered, including seasoned practitioners as well as many brand new to yoga, ranging from the age of 18 months to 70+ years old.

The gathering, co-sponsored by Lululemon Princeton and Princeton IYCC, was organized to introduce the Princeton community to the practice of AcroYoga, a blended wisdom of Thai massage, yoga and partner acrobatics.

On August 5th, the Princeton IYCC holds a special 2.5 hour workshop led by Leyna Love Muktadevi Schaeffer, with an in-depth introduction to AcroYoga, including the fundamentals and basic techniques of flying, basing and spotting, as well as inversion training, tightness drills, partner warm ups, and more. AcroYoga is a fun supportive practice which helps to build trust, communication skills and move beyond fears. No experience or partner necessary, but workshop participants are welcome to bring a partner or friends.

The IYCC is open seven days a week, 6:30am to 9:00pm on most days, with a multitude of yoga classes to accommodate all ages, body types, conditions and temperaments. Several classes cater to those needing respite from hectic work schedules with meditation or mindful exercise before work, during lunchtime or after a long day. Students and office, school, retail workers are able to participate in classes without any need to change into yoga garb. Visitors have options of Aerial Yoga, Chair Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, Gentle Yoga and more. Classes are free for everyone on Community Yoga Day which are second Saturdays of every month.
