✅ SKILL LEVEL
This mini-Festival is addressed to intermediate and advanced acro levels, NOT FOR ACRO BEGINNERS. Due to the variety of types of movements we decided to set separate prereqs.

✅ THE TEACHER TEAM
? FER & FIFI (cia. )
? LUIGI & FRANCESCA (Sicily Acro)
Driven by their passion for practicing and sharing, Francesca and Luigi are a couple of instructors who come from the sunny Sicily, an island in the south part of Italy. They met 9 years ago and fell in love also thanks to acro-yoga. Luigi is a Thai and Chinese massage (tuinà) therapist and thanks to his passion for ancient arts he also became a taiji Chuan teacher with more than 10 years of experience and a Meditation teacher.
Francesca comes from the dance world and she is a psychologist who loves the special way acroyoga make people connect and support each other with an open mind attitude, work on personal strengh and bounderins, experiment the “beeing in the present moment”. They are “Partner Acrobatic” and “Acro Love” certfied teachers.
In their practice, they love to create fluid and elegant flows but also enjoy the energy of speed and tempo through whips, whip-pops, and Icarian games. They focus their training and teaching on small details and love to break down complicated moves with ease creating progressions to make sure success even more complex tricks. They believe that practicing acro yoga is a lucky opportunity to grow as human beings, to best express every one own potential and to contribute creating a community of people focused on sharing, supporting and enjoy life. In their way of teaching, there is always a bit of irony between them to remind that smiling is the spice of life.
They often perform, teach regular classes, organize workshops and retreats all over the world. They are co-founders of the “AcroFusion Teacher Training”, an acro yoga program to become a teacher. The event they like most is the “Sicily Acro Convention”, a cool acrobatic convention they organize in the summer, bringing together many national and international teachers and participants in a marvellous Natural Reserve!
They strongly believe that creating a joyfull atmosfere during the classes help people to bring out their inner sun (the warm, playful, entusiastic part of them) and to be part of a healthy community where a beautiful laugh never fails!

? PRI & JEN (prijenacro.com)
When they started practicing together, Pri and Jen directly felt a strong connection and a shared vision focused on the investigation of new and fluid dynamic movements. Both Acro Revolution certified teachers, they love all kinds of whipping movements with their momentum that creates fluidity as well as the feeling of freedom and the height Icarian Games offers them. They are always looking for new combinations and new synergetic movements. They are Whips, Whip-pops, and Icarians fanatics. Particularly concerned about inclusion, in their teaching journey they aim to see each one of their students flourish, providing skills and progressions to suit everyone’s needs. Coming from two different countries and living together in a third one, they speak several languages and their workshops can be taught in English, Spanish, Italian, French and Catalan.
Since she was a child, Jennifer has been in love with movement. She’s explored all types of activities such as dancing, climbing, yoga, and so on, before settling her heart on acro. Pri has more than 9 years of experience in acroyoga and partner acrobatics. Pri is also co-founder of the Acro-Gravity project founded in 2017. Since the beginning, he focused on fluidity and dynamic transitions in L-basing partner acro.
All this time they have organized intensive and advanced acroyoga and L-basing acrobatic workshops, as well as taken part in retreats, festivals, and meetings. They also are the promotor of the IAM International Acro Mini-Festival and of All That Move, a movement driven event. They have been teaching, among other, in the Dutch Acrobatic Festival, Acroyoga Summer Festival, WAP Festival, FAB (Barcelona Acroyoga Festival) , BAC (Barcelona Acrobatic Convention), SAFE festival Slovenia, Time-Out Festival Germany, and many more. Their latest workshops are part of a successful tour that is taking them all over Europe, and even to the States to share their passion and knowledge on fluid dynamic transitions.
