Acro: Couch Acro

Difficulty: Easy

Safety Warning: Adults, spot your acrobats! If possible, clear anything hard or breakable out of the immediate vicinity to avoid injury or breakage. These tricks are designed for a small space but do be aware of your immediate surroundings.

Tilly and Will show you some couch acro! Not everyone has lots of space at home, so Tilly shows you a move that is perfect to do in your living room with minimal space.

This move is a sort of partner handstand, using a base (the person supporting) who sits on the sofa and supports the flyer’s legs on their shoulders. Couch acro may look easy, but it’s important to make sure you’re aligned just right. You can also practice going into the move and out of the move in a controlled way!
