For a mind-body class that better fits your social needs, there’s AcroYoga. The one-hour, chatter-friendly fitness session combines yoga, Thai massage, and acrobatic techniques.
After a group introduction, get to know your neighbor through a series of joint poses that require legs, arms, and, yes, bum, to rest upon the participant beside you. Can’t control the awkward laughter? No worries — giggling is encouraged.
Trust a partner to support you through aerial stunts (one lift resulted in a surprisingly therapeutic spinal release), back bends, splits, and a few curious spins. Once you’ve had your turn, flip positions to return the favor.
Now that’s the community spirit.
