Prague 0916 p2 About Glynis:

This fire ball of a person is full of enthusiasm and energy that it make me wonder if she’s actually human.  She has extensive practical teaching experience of body movement.  She will have completed her AcroYoga Montreal teacher training over the summer and I’m super excited to be co-teaching with her. 

About Jaqui:

I unearthed a shiny acrobatic gem last year at the Berlin convention when I met her.  She is one of the original certified AcroYoga teachers in the world and has helped spread the practice over the past decade across her native UK and beyond.  Don’t be fooled by her petite frame – she can base just like a muscleman!  Full of energy, flexible, creative, humble, warm and funny she will give you new insights into your practice and take your acro skills up a notch or two.
