Registration Closed: Above & Beyond Summer 2021 - level 2 Intermediate Monkey Play
Time & Location
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 weekly partner play and daily 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 up 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.

Originally, this program was designed as an immersion for three full months, starting in October 2020.

This gives us the opportunity to offer you something even more awesome!

We intend to start this course on June 15th.
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.
At the lovely LOU Oudenoord, close to the center of Utrecht.
A cozy yoga shala with plants and lots of windows that allow sunlight.
Yoga mats, blankets, tea, and free parking are provided.
But if the weather Gods are in our favour, we'll be teaching in nature,
maybe even using the water to our advantage.
