20. – 22. April 2018

The encouraging, technical and creative AcroYoga explorers — Saar and Ruslan — are coming back to Hamburg for a full weekend

[> follow this link for price options & booking]

In a nutshell

2,5 days of intensive AcroYoga based on perspectives of Understanding, Feeling, Flowing, Moving, Partnering and Dance. Learn how to improve your understanding of the principles of balance in static poses vs motion: alone & together. Discover how to apply those principles on different aspects of AcroYoga and Movement: trust & grounding in the unknown. Understand how to use trust and grounding within different range of speed: slow and controlled vs fast and furious. Unfold possibilities of adaptation vs resistance, through creativity: explore how to change your own strategy & to switch roles. Learn how to create a flow — and develop your own one.

This Intensive is meant for people with Level 2 to Level 4 AcroYoga practice, see details below. In some cases we will work with „A, B, C – approach“ (A-easy, B-normal, C-difficult). Practice necessary skills on a regular base, alone and together with others! The whole weekend is a building-up progression, focusing on the understanding of bio-mechanics of your body and the body of your partner, through techniques, drills, acrobatics & movement.

Immerse with us into a creative process!
