Are you ready to take the time to dive deep into the practice of Acroyoga? Do you already have a regular practice and looking for an intensive setting to level up? Curious about Acroyoga but haven’t yet committed to the practice?
This Teacher Training is designed to take you from beginner to intermediate and from intermediate to advanced in your practice. We offer a focused progressive approach of training acrobatics, and emphasize the importance of communication in order to build success in partnerships. Our focus is for every student to gain the strength, confidence, and understanding of each progression leading to the final pose or transition. We measure success through the excitement of our students, which comes from curiosity and the improved understanding of each step we lead them through.
Expect a focused and fun environment throughout the training. Our goal is to push you towards the edge of your comfort zone in order to aid your growth, both as an acrobat and a human.
In our teaching modules, we’ll cover creation of a class arc, techniques for teaching with a partner and teaching alone, how to effectively demo, and general safety as a teacher. We will share with you everything we’ve learned over 2 years of teaching weekly classes, domestic and international weekend workshops, and immersions.
Along with these skills, you’ll leave with an understanding of how to read a room, manage expectations, build community, and the difference of teaching acrobatics versus teaching connection/play.
