About The Event
Have you been dreaming of flying washing machines like a graceful bird?
Being a rocksteady 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…

- WE DIDN'T CALL THIS ABOVE AND BEYONG FOR NOTHING -
Originally, this program was designed as an immersion for three full months, starting in October 2020.
Well, that didn't quite shake out the way we planned...
BUT! When one door closes, other doors open.
This gives us the opportunity to offer you something even more awesome!
- INSTEAD OF ONLY 12 EVENING CLASSES, WE OFFER -
√11 three-hour classes in June, July and September 2021
√BONUS: Two full weekends of AcroYoga in September
Out in nature when possible, and otherwise in our own yoga shala
-One weekend equals more than 3 Adventure evenings-
You can choose to:
-use these weekends to catch up with any missed classes (because of summer holidays), or
-consider them as a bonus: our gift to you for jumping in with us!
So if you want to make AcroYoga a wonderful & nourishing part of your life, come and take this opportunity!
Become part of the AcroYoga community, which doesn't just live in Utrecht,

- CORONA TIMES ANNOUNCEMENT -
We intend to start this course on June 16th.
In case we have to wait a bit longer for government measures to ease,
we'll let you know as soon as we can.
- CANCELLATION POLICY -
Because we charge 50% of the total amount until 14 days before the event starts
and full price after this time, it's not possible to receive a refund.
With all the current developments, we assume that we'll be able to offer the full course plus bonus weekends to you.
In the unlikely case that isn't possible, we will offer you alternative options to make sure you get everything that you paid for (and more).
If you opt to get a refund in this case, we charge €25,- admin costs.
In the lovely LOU Oudenoord, near the center of Utrecht.
A cozy yoga shala with plants and lots of windows that allow sunlight.
Yoga mats, blankets, and tea are provided and free parking is available.
But if the weather Gods are in our favour, we'll be teaching in nature,
maybe even using the water to our advantage.
