I found this place after I was introduced to Acro Yoga at another studio but had the same instructor at both places. Scott is an excellent instructor who makes learning Acro Yoga fun and obtainable. He does a good job of starting with the basics and then accommodating more experienced users by giving challenges and building on the level of difficulty. He monitors, assists, and gives attention to everyone in the class. He makes everyone feel welcome and is very helpful with his recommendation and suggestions of other courses. As a single mom of a child, it is hard to find places to go with my child. When I mentioned the issue, I was encouraged to bring my child to class. Not only did I have a blast, but my son did too. He said that it was WAY cooler than he expected and that is pretty high praise from a 9 year old. I also have really enjoyed how he has partnered and co-taught with other instructors. Hearing how both the “flyer” and the “base” work through and do their part is very helpful for me when I am getting into the positions for the first time. I look forward to exploring more classes at this studio.
