This will be an all day bodywork extravaganza. We will introduce you to the art of healing touch and work with ‘Metta’ loving kindness. It will be a real treat for our achey and tired bodies. You will practice the principles of mutual support, giving and receiving. We will introduce you to a blend of Thai massage sequences and therapeutic flying flows blended with massage. This one day offering is aimed as an introduction to the yummy side of AcroYoga. No experience or no partner necessary do come with an open mind & a willingness to have fun!

Embodying the physical form Sunday, September 26th, 10-1pm & 2.30-5.30pm

A day to tap into your source of strength, flexibility and creative will. We will explore the qualities of embodying the acrobatic, beginning with conditioning & strength exercises followed by a strong vinyasa practice before working on various inversions to turn your world upside down (headstand, forearm balance and handstands). You will be working progressively in pairs and in small groups towards partner balancing, group pyramids and trios involving a base, flyer and spotter with a focus toward basic flying transitions. No partner necessary by a willingness to explore your fearless inner child required.

About Jaqui and Tobias

Both are fearless acrobatic junkies with teaching experience across Europe and recently across North America. Their teaching style is compassionate ‘boot camp’ yoga. They are able to blend clear instruction with humour and playfulness. Using a ‘kick ass’ music playlist they are both creative spontaneous and receptive to the different needs of students. Both are passionate practitioners and community builders.

Participants can attend Saturday as a one off event. However, to attend the Sunday offering we require you to either attend all day Saturday or have some experience of AcroYoga and or have an intermediate yoga asana practice and are comfortable with inversions (assisted headstands/handstands against a wall).

International Acrobatics Convention 2010

Acro: What the…..!!!!

After attending and teaching at the 3rd International Acrobatics Convention in France, I was left aghast at the shear level, skill and expertise of both the teachers and participants who attended. It was a fabulous opportunity to learn from the amazing and abundantly experienced teachers, not only running the workshops but participating at the Convention also. I was left often shell shocked by the potential of what human bodies can do with focus, direction and lots and lots of training. It just makes me realise how much of a journey I have ahead of me on my acrobatic path. Needless to say the pictures supporting the blog are here to inspire rather than to shock.

Yeay to more Acro!!!

A little taster as to what can be possible with alot of training

AcroYoga tourists in Norway

A Norwegian Adventure

Always the potential to be a tourist attraction

What a beautiful country is Norway! After spending ten days with a most generous host Thomas Horgen, a budding AcroYoga enthusiast and professional climber, both Tobias and I could not have been in better hands. What did we get up to? In between weekend workshops in Oslo and Trondheim, we managed to head up into the mountains to practice our yoga, rock climb in the big outdoors, taught teenage children AcroYoga, swam but in my case paddle in freezing clear river water and all under the canopy of glorious sunshine!!

It felt like holiday! Absolutely fabulous or ‘fantastiske’ in Norwegian. It was a great opportunity to be out in the glorious county a lovely change from metropolitan urbanite living, ‘Man I am so blessed!!’
