OUR TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

AcroSpirit’s approach to the practice and teachings of Acroyoga goes deep into the technical skills, but also beyond the physical practice too!

We see Acroyoga as a beautiful pathway to greater connection, communication, teamwork, trust, empathy, support, friendship and play. 

We focus our teaching on understanding key techniques, building embodiment and proper habits, plus learning how to effectively communicate and teach this to others.


We strongly stand for unity, inclusiveness and empowering each other to rise together beyond our individual limits.

Through Acroyoga we become more than a community, we become a family.

At our events we implement the AcroSpirit Code of Conduct for the safety and clarity of all participants and teachers.

THE COURSE

This course has been designed to provide you with all of the technical and theoretical knowledge and skills needed to take your acroyoga practice beyond the intermediate level.
 

The content we will cover is the most essential and technically valuable in growing you towards an advanced acroyoga practice. We will focus on progressions, drills and understanding skills, so you will be able to continue to practice and develop after the training.

 

In the theoretical classes we will bring more focus to teaching and coaching techniques and practices, whilst looking deeper into professional development, advanced training tips, community leading and injury prevention/management.

WE FOCUS ON:

 

  • Teaching progressive skills, drills, and techniques to safely learn advanced skills.

  • Promoting the best high-level safety and spotting practices.

  • Teaching and practicing supportive and positive communication.

  • Developing industry best practices for acroyoga teaching and coaching skills

PLEASE NOTE:

This is NOT a full and complete Acroyoga Teacher Training. We do put some significant focus and sessions towards teaching practice and refining teaching skills during the training, however a large focus is also on developing your own practice and acro skills.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Most days will begin with pre-hab exercises and warm-ups to prepare the body, combined with handstand drills to improve your understanding and ability in this critical skill.

After a hearty breakfast, we will explore an acroyoga theory topic in depth, which will involve group questions, discussion, and often practical exercises to implement and put the theory in to practice.

After theory we will have an acro workshop, focussed on one set of skills or techniques, building up progressions and drills and working in depth on the main focus skills.

After a relaxed lunch break, we will dive into another theory topic, followed by a different acro workshop (most days the two acro workshops will focus on different parts of the body and different skill sets to not cause overuse in one bodypart).

After the last acro workshop we will give some time for therapeutic practices like thai yoga massage, flying acro therapeutics or time for personal stretching and cool down, all to help the body recover and rest.

Each days content, and the overall week is designed with your experience, enjoymment and longevity in mind, we include several break and rest periods to allow more time for the body to recover and manage with the programs intensity.
