AcroYoga Montreal Philosophy:

It is the sharing of self that touches the student’s heart and fosters understanding and a desire for growth within both student and teacher. Knowing our place in the world only happens when we know our world. At AcroYoga Montreal there is no separation of AcroYoga, yoga, and reality. To live apart from this world is not the goal but to transform ourselves and our societies rooted in a deep understanding of the social, political and economic systems & institutions we engage in on a daily basis.

PRIVILEGE, OPPRESSION + acroyoga

with Jessie Goldberg & Eugene Poku

How do we integrate our practice with our social consciousness? Knowing our place in the world only happens when we know our world. At AcroYoga Montreal, there is no separation of AcroYoga, yoga, and reality. To live apart from this world is not the goal; rather, we strive to transform ourselves and our societies rooted in a deep understanding of the social, political, and economic systems & institutions we engage with on a daily basis. Everyone is welcome to participate in the discussion, regardless of level of AcroYoga practice.

MEET THE TEACHERs

After 30 years as professional dancers, Eugene & Jessie went on together to become co-founders & co-directors of Ashtanga Yoga Montreal (2004-16) and co-founders of AcroYoga Montreal (since 2000).

 

Eugene Poku is a long time yoga / AcroYoga Teacher who both respects tradition and utilizes intuition—something he applies to his teaching as well as to his personal practice and throughout his life. Eugene’s compassionate yet direct style of teaching is inspired from his 40-plus years of experience and skill in dance, acro-inspired movement, and martial arts.

 

Jessie Goldberg is a yoga/AcroYoga practitioner, instructor, householder, and mother of 3 charming offspring. Her teaching style is down-to-earth, inclusive, and embraces human reciprocity and cultivation of personal movement vocabulary.

 

A teaching team since 1982, this senior married couple connects the dots between mind, body, breath relationships, and life.
