If you are committed to playful greatness, then we have created an Adventure for you:
Have you been dreaming of being a super graceful flyer,
or becoming the steadiest base that ever walked the earth?
Are you longing to overcome your fears and build a stronger sense of confidence?
You already know that you’re capable of more than you think,
so this is your opportunity to reach even higher!
We love coaching you on your AcroYoga goals, and why not reach
some life goals in the meantime as well?
Two weekends filled with everything AcroYoga, weekly classes
(given with passion), challenges and inspiring assignments will
be your invitation to step into a greater version of you.
You will build strength, elegance and flexibility.
You’ll develop more confidence and body awareness.
Try out funky new poses, transitions and washing machines,
learn by falling down and laughing yourself up again: “failing forward”.
Be prepared to laugh, sweat and have loads of fun.
Get ready to meet your new AcroYoga friends.
And, last but not least: you’ll be part of a creative, endorphin inducing,
oxytocin overdosing, loving kindness-loaded tribe.
So let’s fly high! The sky is the beginning…

we also help you to dive deeper into your practice.

Also, you will learn the best basing and flying skills,
while communicating your needs and boundaries.
- FRIDAY EVENING - opening weekend - 30 September
We'll start the opening weekend with a Thai Massage evening,
which will be all about connection, relaxation and loving touch.

with playful exercises and a deliciously long Thai Massage exchange.
Start the weekend relaxed and energized
and connect with (new) friends.
- SATURDAY - opening weekend - 1 October
This opening Saturday will be fully dedicated to learning -or growing- your therapeutic flying skills.
As a base, you’ll learn to be stable, trustworthy and present.

You will first develop your technical flying skills,
and then develop qualities like:
presence in touch, loving kindness, and fully tuning into your partner’s needs.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY - closing weekend - 25-26 November
This closing weekend will be all about acrobatics and play.
We'll inspire you with beautiful, creative AcroYoga flows at your level of experience.
