Join us on a transformative journey expanding your embodiment, acrobatic, movement and facilitator skills!

Progressive skill development will allow us to create a strong foundation and refine your practice and teachings.

We will support you with various tools to explore your unique teaching style, your voice and authenticity as a teacher in a safe, fun & mindful way.

After 14 days with us you will feel a great difference in holding space for others and a richer understanding of the wide spectrum of the AcroYoga practice.

Gabriella Acro
Encouraging each student to feel safe, included and ready to explore playfulness and trust! We are stronger together, empowered and held by a community of supportive people.
Gabriella is a certified AcroYoga International teacher and she has studied acrobatics and circus arts at the Swedish Circus school, Cirkus Cirkor. She teaches Thai-Yoga-Massage, inviting students into a Lunar dance of healing touch. She has studied Thai-Yoga-Massage with the Sunshine Network in Thailand. In 2009 she co-founded the AcroYoga Stockholm community with Tobias Strollo and she teaches and travels worldwide.

MiTo FlyingMonkey
Mito is a German movement junky, who loves to geek out on tricks, progression, biomechanics, healing arts and the meaning of life. But the important stuff in life doesn’t happen in the mind, so more importantly he loves to play, explore, co-create and dive into a dance of movement. Since 2014 it is also part of his passion to share his insights and experience in Acroyoga, handstands and Thai-Yoga-Massage. He teaches workshops throughout Europe and on many festivals and conventions around the world, as well as several retreats every year. His strengths are precise instructions, on-the-spot cues and subtle progressions. He will only be happy after a workshop if people are left with a smile, a good feeling in their body and a lot of inspiration..
