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.
This is a multi-level workshop, however all participants should have a body of experience in yoga, AcroYoga, dance, martial arts, or another similar discipline. We will refresh fundamentals, but this intensive is not recommend for absolute beginners.
