What Does Super Soldier Pose Mean?

Super Solider Pose is a posture found in AcroYoga, a style in which traditional Hatha or Vinyasa Flow are combined with acrobatics. A key feature of AcroYoga is that it is practiced by two people together.

Super Soldier Pose is a challenging, advanced level supine base pose, in which one person provides the base (in contact with the ground) and the other person is a flyer (lifted off the ground by the base). It is a variation of Standing Super Soldier Pose, which is practiced by one person alone, with one foot on the ground.

Yogapedia Explains Super Soldier Pose

To practice Super Solider Pose, follow these steps with a partner:

  1. Begin by transitioning through 'Low Foot to Hand' Pose (L-base with feet supporting flyer's hands, base's elbows to the ground and palms up. Flyer stands on base's palms with heels pointing towards base's face).
  2. Base: lower legs to the ground. Flyer: fold forward and switch right foot with right hand, going hand-to-hand with base on the right side, with two fingers supporting one another's wrists.
  3. Flyer: bring left shoulder behind left thigh and reach left arm up. Lift right leg up towards the sky, bend the knee and open the hip.
  4. Flyer: catch right foot with left hand.

This pose can be held for as long as both practitioners feel stable, and should be repeated on both sides. This is a particularly challenging pose, and requires a great deal of core strength and flexibility from the flyer. As such, it is very important to warm up the body prior to practicing Super Solder Pose.
