About The Event
Have you been dreaming of flying washing machines like a graceful bird?
Being a rock solid base? Overcoming your fear of heights and building deeper trust?
The things you believed to be far away as the moon will soon be at your fingertips.
We’ll help you to reach a lot (and maybe all!) of your personal and physical goals.
With weekly – passionately given – classes, structured challenges
and inspiring assignments for partner play and solo practice.
We’ll focus on fundamentals like tightness and lightness (core strength & balance)
and softness (oh-so feathery feet and hand grip).
We’ll teach you how to massage and stretch each other in refreshing gravity-defying ways.
We’ll challenge you to try funky new transitions and washing machines in a playful way:
so be prepared to laugh and sweat.
You’ll build strength, elegance, and flexibility.
Develop more self-esteem and body awareness.
Master new techniques.
You’ll probably find an AcroYoga partner (or two).
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…
