Happy Dolphin - an acroyoga washing machine

Discovered in 2014 with flyer Jamie Lee, and tuned up with many others since then.
Possible variation, without bow, go straight from bird on hands to seated pike, by opening legs in a quick straddle, supported by bases knees and toes.

Play with it, use spotters (or surround yourself with magic soft sand:) ... enjoy & share any variation you discover!

Oldie but goodie... back in the days, already some funky "acroyoga" with Krishnamacharya and his daughter. I can't help but wonder if at some time in India they were doing it with adults sometimes, even if "just for adjusting" as i saw it done in an ashtanga shala a few years ago... In this video i love about the gentle & firm care of the base, he's not just tossing the kid around, but really giving the yogic experience... and i love the dismount, gotta try it with kids & adults! 

i am excited to go back to India this Spring with 2 immersions in 2 different regions of the north, 2 different types of immersions.. so they can be taken as combo:

25-29 March: Rishikesh Lunar, back to our favorite ashram, on the high Ganges shores:
15-19 April: Dharamsala Elemental, the Dalai Lama will be our neighbor in this land or pristine mountains & rivers:
