Always wanted to try acro yoga in San Francisco, but aren’t sure where the best acro yoga jams in San Francisco are?
Here’s where to do acro yoga in San Francisco, possibly the most vibrant acro yoga community in the world. Most of these classes and jams focus on L-basing acro yoga where the base lies on their back and the flyer is on the feet of the base. There’s also a little standing acro yoga with influences from cheer and Chinese acrobatics. The author has personally done all of these and can recommend them all!
