INEZ ALMEIDA is an acroyoga teacher, actress, dancer and Thai massage therapist. She has been drawn to movement since she can remember and it took her to explore many different forms and styles.
Movement is energy moving, unblocking, freeing itself, expressing life through the body.
Her movement journey started at the age of 9 in the Ballet Conservatory of Lisbon where she studied for several years.
Inez has a Bachelor in physical acting from the Theatre University of Amsterdam, she is a certified teacher in both Acroyoga international (http://www.acroyoga.org) and Montreal style (https://acroyoga.com), and holds also a certificate in healing Thai yoga massage. She has been working as a freelance traveling extensively in several continents with her artistic work, and has been teaching Acroyoga intensively throughout the past few years in many communities in Europe.
Her love for movement and its healing powers have brought her to explore different ways to access that sacred place where transformation can occur. She believes in sharing with an open heart, creating space for connection, trust and intimacy, allowing love to flow freely.
ERIC SIMETH was touched by the exploration of movement of the body and the sensation of simple aliveness that arises from it since childhood. He started gymnastics in Geneva – his home city in Switzerland – at the age of 6 and carried on later with yoga, dance, acroyoga, acrobatics and Thai massage. Thanks to those experiences and teachings he has been cultivating a way of life and tools that support the health and balance of the body-mind complex as well as means to relate to each other through artistic co-creation, verbal and nonverbal communication, and healing touch.
Eric is a certified acroyoga.org teacher and yoga teacher. He has been traveling throughout Europe to share and promote the practices and teachings that are dear to him. He likes to put the emphasis on co-creating a space for safe learning and physical as well as emotional growth.
