This open level Acroyoga workshop combines a number of disciplines ranging from gymnastics, acrobatics to yoga and relaxation techniques inspired by Thai massage. In everything we do, our aim is to be fully present, especially when we are looking to find harmony both internally and with others around us. Acroyoga offers something different for every practitioner depending on their goal; be it building strength, finding balance, enhancing self-awareness both on a physical and on an emotional level, as well as building trust or boosting creativity. Acroyoga is all of these things and we would like to invite you to join us in this session and discover what matters to you the most!

All levels are welcome, no experience required, if you have done acro already, that’s great too. The class will cater for everyone.

The workshop will be divided in three main parts:

  • Warm up with games, followed by some strength and conditioning exercises and fun tumblings.
  • Afterwards, we will experiment with basic Acroyoga poses and flows, from L-base to standing and from standing to L-base. Don’t worry the exercises will be accessible for everybody!
  • Finally we will have a gentle Thai massage sequence guided by Elena.
