Weekend Immersion:
Icarian Games

With Aviva Rose-Williams

Like a dynamic cousin of AcroYoga, Icarian games is the discipline of juggling other humans with your feet. This workshop will explore the discipline of Icarian games for people of all skill levels—whether you’ve never balanced anyone on your feet before or are a seasoned pro. Learn to do basic “whips” and “pops”, flips and turns, and throw or be thrown by your partner in the air with confidence.


Friday | 6:00 – 9:00 pm
Saturday | 10:00 am – 1:00 pm & 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Sunday | 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The workshop could be open to people of all skill levels. Anyone who wants to base should be able to lie on their back with their legs at a 90 degree angle. Due to the placement of landing and falling those wishing to fly should not be pregnant, and bases should not be more than 3 months pregnant.
