ACRO INTENSIVE WITH LADYBASE AND APRIL SNOW
NOVEMBER 10 – 16, 2019

We are doing it again! After our amazing week in Tulum last year, we are excited to announce our second annual intensive in Mexico! Come for a week of skill building in acro, inversions, creative flows, and more.

Location:
Same teachers, different location! We have found a new exciting location. We will be hosting our intensive in the quaint city of San Pancho Mexico at the Circo De Los Ninos. It is a non-profit circus school put together by the co-founder of Cirque Du Soleil and Creative Director, Gilles Ste-Croix and his wife Monique Voyer. They have created this space for locals to have an opportunity to experience human empowerment through the circus. Their mission is to “Encourage the holistic development of youth and young adults by improving their artistic, creative, motor and communication skills, as well as strengthening their confidence in taking risks in a secure and safe environment”.
We have the privilege to share this space for a full week of training in this curated space.

Exciting Content:
With the access to gymnastics mats we will incorporate more tumbling into the curriculum, as well as a dance studio to help develop your acro grace.
Whips, Pops, H2H, Dance Lifts, and some Standing Acro will be included.
Prepare to dive deep into all new creative flows and washing machines. We will spend time on proper alignment, helping you with your fancy footwork, and strengthening your transitions.
Everyday we will be exploring various inversions. Anticipate learning skills such as how to press to handstand, proper inversion alignment, and personalized tips and tricks to help develop your physical practice. Included will be progressions for beginner inverters. You can also expect some thai massage, strengthening activities, and various stretching exercises throughout the week.

Schedule:
We are starting on the morning of the 10th at 9am, please make sure to arrive the day before to get settled and ready to start the next morning.
Schedule subject to change:
9AM- 2:30PM Acro/Inversion/tumbling

What it includes:
A seven day full spectrum Acro and movement training.

More about San Pancho:
This year we are trying something different since everyone has many different specificities. You can find Airbnb as cheap as $15 USD a night to whatever your budget may include. There’s loads of delicious restaurants to eat from in the area including vegetarian. If you are on a budget, the local grocery area has beyond affordable foods which you can prepare at home. We both love visiting San Pancho for a few reasons. For one, the night life is phenomenal. They close off the main road (which is the major thoroughfare through the town) for live music and performances. Secondly, they have a large beautiful beach to hang out during your down time. And lastly, the city has a great vibe, is super easy to get around by foot, and you will have lots of time to explore the area during the breaks.

First 6 spaces at $600 USD

__MÉLANIE LADYBASE__

As a child growing up in a small town, Melanie had always craved for dance and circus arts. With a constant desire to move her body, she used dance and play to express herself throughout the years. She later moved to Vancouver where she fell in love with Yoga, leading her to her true love, Acroyoga. While practicing Acro she experienced the power it can have; how it can break down walls, foster expression and create communities. Guided by good friends and inspired by great teachers, Melanie would later become a moving force in the AcroYoga world. Eventually, her passion turned into a profession as she traveled internationally. Learning, practicing and teaching Acroyoga became her essence of living. Ladybase believes Acro discovered the talent in her. Melanie is renowned for her engaging and creative training techniques. Her knowledge and appreciation of Biomechanics, and background in Transpersonal Counselling-Psych adds to her teaching ability. Her communication skills, gentle nature and charisma make her teaching very special.
