About The Event

We have created a three-month AcroYoga Adventure for those committed to playful greatness ;).

Have you been dreaming of flying washing machines like a graceful bird? Being a steady base? Or 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 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.


12 classes from 19.00 to 22.00, consisting of:

√Partner yoga, strength conditioning, fun & games

√Handstand practice and (all kinds of crazy) Acrobatics

√Healing Space: Therapeutic Flying

√Thai Yoga Massage: deepening your massage skills

—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 AcroYoga a wonderful & nourishing part of your life.


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 beginners course (level 1) is probably more suitable for you:

there are no prereqs required!
