barefootyoga.me – African Vibes 2019
March 23 - March 29
In our Retreats we are teaching basic and advanced techniques with up to 8 hours of daily practice including Acrobatics, Functional Movement, Yoga, Contact Improvisation & Bodywork. 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, Washing Machines, Whips, Pops & Flows), Functional Movement, Open Play, Contact Improvisation, Axis Syllabus, Martial Arts, Bodywork, Yin Yoga and much more. The heart of this week will be about cultivating trust, strength and flexibility, within ourselves and as a group.
Doesn’t matter if you are a pro, you have little or none experience in AcroYoga or Acrobatics. We will be teaching two levels simuntaniously to make sure that everyone is getting their dose of Acro. Beginner/Intermediate participants will learn a wholistic fundation in AcroYoga & Partner Acrobatics. Intermediate/Advanced participants will be focusing on L-basing Tempos (whips, pops & dynamic entries/exits, as well the art of hand2hand).
Your Holliday Package:
Alongside the intensive practice there will be many opportunities to immerse yourself in nature and the outdoors in this magical location. There are multiple hammocks in the garden, a swimming pool, volleyball court, leafy trees to doze underneath, a yoga shala on the rooftop, and a beautiful fireplace, perfect for evening jams.
