Acro Yoga is a fun filled yet serious practice with the potential to reconnect us to our inner child. The participatory, interactive and self-affirming energy of the Acroyoga practice unites like-minded people from different walks of life. It has many practical and therapeutic applications both in the Acroyoga community and the world at large.
The mastery of the technique in our own Acro Yoga practice is the foundation we draw on for teaching AcroYoga. How to communicate verbally and physically to our students the inner & outer experience are the skills we will explore in this Acroyoga Teacher Training Intensive.
