AcroYoga Lunar Day 0416

We will begin the day with AcroYoga Lunar asana to tune to our own bodies. There after we will delve into elements of Thai massage in a supine, prone and or seated sequence. We will explore the flow of energy in the body, where it maybe blocked, and how to use the breath, gravity, body weight, touch and vibrations to release, unblock and create free flow.

We will introduce the art of suspended therapeutics, involving a base and flyer. The base grounds and suspends the flyer with their hands and feet to create the potential to release tension and muscular holding patterns. The passive nature of the flyer enables the base to sculpt the flyer into a variety of shapes that stretches and opens the flyers upper body.

Open to all and especially those who have studied or are studying Thai massage or other forms of body work. Please note you will be asked to work in pairs or encouraged to work in small groups.

Our May Bank Holiday, so what happened?

Post May Bank Holiday Retreat 2014,..

I have the pleasure of sharing with you some of the highlights of our recent May Bank Holiday get away held on the 2-5th May 2014.

This retreat was held at the fabulous Inner Guidance Retreat Centre, in Lavenham Suffolk, with our hosts Jo and Dominic.

The following are written comments from the participants.

“If you want to get away from it all then Inner Guidance is the place to be. The energy is very healing and nurturing. I felt the hosts Dom & Jo have worked very hard to offer & share a space like this to the world, no wonder they are fully booked until next year! Their expertise in utilising the space and providing such nutritious & interesting meals were great so healing in the physical body. Thank you to them for providing such a wonderful venue.” Lavinia Wong ☺️

Retreat Centre

“Full to the brim with laughter, lightness of being, learning, skills, drills and spins. Jaqui’s style is conscious, caring and inspirational. Her experience ensures all levels are catered for and the mix of games, down time and upside down time are truly responsive to the group. I would recommend Jaquis retreats to anyone – if you plan to know your stuff and play in safe hands. Wan is the magic number.” Cat Duval

“Whether you are new to AcroYoga or already an Acro-addict, this is an exceptional retreat. The venue is beautiful with a large, light studio set in gorgeous grounds allowing an opportunity to spread your wings and fly outside on sunny days. The food is lovingly prepared and presented and the hosts provide a relaxed and convivial atmosphere. Jaqui is an incredible teacher who will wow you with your own potential, challenge your practice and beat your triceps into submission!” Janni Scott-Walton
