Trying to figure out a transition from back bird to sidestar while still holding hands in a park jam proved challenging until an instructor friend told me to look up ‘log roll’.

The term ‘log roll’ can mean two different things in acroyoga. The first one most people think of is when in foot to hand the base rolls on the ground like a log without the flyer falling off.

The one I was thinking of was far less challenging. It’s a simple sidestar washing machine similar to ninja star, but not as frequently taught. Check it out!
