Dear acro monkeys! I am excited to announce our 14-16 June acro yoga retreat! We are going to the Teteven mountains in the beautiful town Малък Извор away from civilization. Our host is Petar Kolchev and we will stay in his guest house – Къщата на Билките-Екзотична и Духовна Земя. The place is 1 hour away from Sofia with car. We will arrive in Friday during the day and we leave in Sunday afternoon. If you prefer, you could join in Saturday morning.

ACRO YOGA: The main activity will be acro yoga workshops and jams outdoors on the green meadows near the guest house. The workshops will be led by our friends, the amazing Glen Acro Saunders AND Jessalyn Leean Oxford. They are coming specifically to teach us. Expect to learn lots of new skills, including L-basing, standing acrobatics and pops. The workshops are suitable for both beginners and more experienced acro yogi.

About Glen and Jessalyn: Glen and Jessalyn enjoy delighting audiences and finding creative ways to drop jaws by performing and teaching partner acrobatics all around the world. They met in early 2016 at Pitch Catch Circus School and made it a mission to continue training together. They have since traveled internationally teaching, training, and performing from the U.S to Canada, Israel, Thailand, Japan, Europe, and many places in between. Glen and Jessalyn have a combined 16 years of acrobatics experience, and they specialize in the partner acrobatic disciplines of hand to hand, Icarian, and AcroYoga.
