barefootyoga.me – AcroVenture Retreat 2017
September 9 @ 6:00 pm - September 15 @ 10:00 am
In our Retreats we are teaching basic and advanced techniques with 8 hours of daily practice including Acrobatics, Yoga, Contact Improvisation, Thai Massage & Meditation. Together we are going to explore the offerings of a professional movement based mentoring customised to the practitioner’s individual level and needs. This journey of self-discovery will not only help you to deepen your practice but will also unfold an essential aspect of your most inner self.
▶ About the Practice ◀
This retreat is offering you a wide range of playful elements, including important principals of Acrobatics (L-basing, Partner-Acro, Dutch & Israeli Flows, Washing Machines), Monkey Business, Open Play, Contact Improv, Axis Syllabus and much more. The heart of this week will be about cultivating trust, strength and flexibility, within ourselves and as a community of dedicated movers.
▶ Your Holliday Package ◀
Alongside the intensive practice (it’s up to you how many classes your going join) you will find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. You have the chance to refresh yourself in one of the two pools, explore the surrounding nature, take an afternoon stroll to the beach or a quick ride into town, which could be Rovinj or Pula (two of the most beautiful towns in whole Croatia).
▶ Daily routine ◀
Following a variety of morning movement improvements, you will learn how to build up the day with an important skill set. In this time of the day each one of you will find their own level and achievements. The integration and focus on handstands, L-basing (Laying Acroabtics) and S-basing (Standing Acrobatics) will be an important aspects of our daily routine. In the afternoon we dedicate our time to the playfull side of moving. Elements with lesser form like Contact Improvisation and Adagio (Dance Acrobatics) will be your main game untill we follow up with a feasty dinner and a final connective bodywork practice before we go to bed.
