Time & Location
Sep 21, 2019, 1:00 PM – Dec 21, 2019, 5:00 PM

About The Event
We have created a three-month AcroYoga Adventure for those committed to playful greatness ;)
In this course we'll get off the floor and up in the air. So not just challenging L-basing flows, but higher level standing acrobatics as well.
The things you believed to be far away as the moon will soon be at your fingertips. We’ll help you 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, washing machines, whips and pops in a playful way: so be prepared to laugh and sweat. Fun guaranteed.
You’ll build strength, elegance, and flexibility. Develop more self-esteem and body awareness. Master new techniques. You’ll probably find an acro 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 (not) the limit.
—THIS COURSE INCLUDES A SPECIAL PROGRAM! —
Every other week, Roald and Marieke will teach a full 4-hour long class
filled with high level partner acrobatics. The main focus of these classes
will be on the Solar aspect of AcroYoga.
We will close every class with a Lunar session (flying or massage).
The other Saturdays, Roald will teach a 3-hour class (partly assisted by Marijke),
of which half of the time will be focused on solidifying the things you learned in the previous week(s).
Also, you'll be working on personal sticking points and challenges to help you find your next level in acrobatics.
The other half of the class is dedicated to dive deeper into the Lunar aspect of AcroYoga: Therapeutic Flying treatments, The art of holistic touch, mindful communication and Advanced Thai Massage techniques.
This special program will help you to not just become a kick ass acrobat, but also develop your practitioner skills.
The program will consist of 12 classes with:
√Partner yoga, strength conditioning, fun & games
√Handstand practice, advanced L-basing and standing acrobatics
√Lunar Space: Therapeutic Flying treatments
√Thai Yoga Massage
√Deepening your massage skills and the art of holistic touch
—Furthermore, we will offer—
√Inspiring assignments for solo and partner home practice
√Structured & fun challenges
√Online Feedback, tips & tricks
√Simple yet powerful daily / weekly practices
We have designed this program as an immersion into AcroYoga for three full months.
An opportunity for you to make this a wonderful & nourishing part of your life.
This course will be guided by Roald & Marieke.
—SKILLS REQUIRED FOR PARTICIPATION -
We can only admit you to the course if you have mastered the prerequisite skills
mentioned below at the start of the course, for the following reason:
we want to start with AcroYogis that are at the same level, so everybody can fly high!
If you need more time for this, our intermediate course (level 2) is probably more suitable for you:
take a look at the prereqs on the event page!
If you have any questions regarding this subject, please let us know as soon as possible.
Without a spotter, as a Base, Flyer OR both.
If you can ONLY base or fly below prereqs, that's totally ok and common. This WILL define your role, especially for more advanced standing and L-basing flows.
Tripod Headstand presses (Press into tuck, straddle and pike)
Handstand against wall 45 seconds
Free handstand with bail out
Low Foot to hand, High Foot to hand (L-basing)

—WHAT YOU WILL LEARN—
We will tailor this course to YOUR needs and wishes as a group, so this will be an adventure for all of us :)
But to give you an idea:
Funky washing machines
Whips & pops at varying levels of difficulty
Tripod Headstand Progressions
And much more, to be discovered…
—THIS IS FOR YOU IF—
√You are able to perform the prerequisites as a flyer and / or base
(If you choose to only base or fly during the course, only those prereqs apply)

√You want to deepen your Therapeutic Flying and Thai Massage skills, be a better communicator, learn the ability to tune into your partner with words as well as loving touch
