ACROLife WORKSHOPS & PLAY GROUND @ Byron Spirit Festival 2018

Plato stated “You can get to know a person better thru an hour of play than in a year of conversation”, this is because,  thru play, we drop our inhibitions and connect on an equal playing field.
We establish trust and safety with each other early on and lay a foundation for strong and supportive relationships.
This year,  we will be teaching ACRO Intro and Progressions Workshops at  The Byron Spirit Festival, , and as a follow up, in the market space, we are inviting you to integrate and share your skills in Acroyoga Playground.Check out the amazing shots from 2017.

For those new to the practice, Acroyoga is a blend of three interconnecting practices:

acrobatics to train strength, endurance and alignment     I      yoga for flexibility of mind and body      I   therapeutic flying and thai massage to manage our recovery and integration

Jason Nemer and Jenny Sauer-Klein co-founded the practice of Acroyoga in 2003, which has since touched the lives of hundreds of thousands of people world-wide.

AcroYoga International supports AcroYoga as a practice that is available for every body, age, and ability.

Acroyoga acknowledges that thru play,we are building healthy and vibrant individuals, relationships and communities.

Essential for our social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development, play also cultivates our imagination, creativity and problem-solving abilities, helping us to see problems in a new light and come up with creative solutions.

This playground is free entry, and open throughout the festival, offering opportunities to enjoy the acrobatic and therapeutic aspects of the practice, depending on your needs.

Zoe Braithwaite of YogaJoy will be care taking this playground, along with other experienced acroyoga practitioners including Abigail Portwin, Russ Demuth, Chase Erbacher and Justin Wolf Heart.

A certified Acroyoga International teacher for 6 years, Zoe teaches regular acroyoga and acro fit classes on the Central Coast and at events, workshops and retreats.
Zoe has taught regular workshops and retreats in the Byron Shire for the last 5 years.
Splendour in the Grass, Circus Arts, Evolve Yoga Festival, Byron Yoga Retreat Centre, Songlines and Byron Spirit Festival have been home to many of these wonderful experiences.
