AcroYoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics and the loving kindness of the healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness and community.
AcroYoga is a community based practice. We ignite our collective potential as we support each other to reach new heights. It invites you to experience the full spectrum of your being through opportunities to give and receive, support and to be supported and be strong and sensitive. It is a systematic approach designed to be accessible to every practitioner and encourages personal transformation in an atmosphere of acceptance, celebration and safety.
This 3-day immersion introduces the full range practice of AcroYoga. The mindfulness of yoga creates a steady foundation from which to explore the dynamism of acrobatics and the loving-kindness of Thai massage. The interplay of all three disciplines will empower everyone to embody the practice with grace, ease, and joy.
