2 AcroYoga Lunar Workshops in Helsinki, October 28th, 2017


Finally! I am proud to host two AcroYoga Workshops which will exclusively focus on the therapuetic (lunar) aspects of the practice. The Lunar practice of AcroYoga uniquely combines the techniques of thai-massage with partnered acrobatics. You will learn how gravity can assist us in bringing space and relaxation to the body and nourishment to the mind. We nuture the skills of listening to our partner which brings depth not only to therapuetic work, but also the acrobatic (solar) practice of AcroYoga.

I am equally proud and excited to be co-teaching these workshops with Max Kopeikin, my fellow AcroYoga teacher from San Francisco, California. This will be his first time in Finland!

*** Our morning workshop (10 A.M. to 1 P.M.) is the basics of the lunar practice. This workshop is open to everyone, but will most benefit those who have some AcroYoga experience and know the basics of basing, flying and spotting. You do not need a partner.

*** Our afternoon workshop is an intermediate workshop, open to all who have attended the morning basic workshop or who have practiced the basics of lunar flying:
Basic therapeutic flying forward
Basic therapeutic flying backward

Place: ILMA Joogastudio, Vanha Talvitie 11A (4.krs), Helsinki
Time: Saturday October 28th, 2017
Basics of lunar flying: 10 A.M. to 1 P.M.
Intermediate lunar flying: 2 to 5 P.M.
Price: 39€/30€ for one workshop
60€/50€ for both workshops
