A premier Acro Event in a premier destination in Egypt
– All levels accepted –
“We connect people from all walks of life through the practice of Acroyoga – a fusion of partner acrobatics and yoga. They are a big proponent of making movement fun and accessible to everyone.” (Acroyoga360).
“We plant seeds in Egypt because we believe in the future. Our community values are: membership and support, respect and inclusion, friendly connection, fun and safety”. (AcroEgypt).
Join the tribe for this new edition! Over the course of Acrocamp we will cover many forms of basing and flying, including L-Basing sequences and flows, gymnastics, yoga, standing acrobatics and dance sequences, trio & group poses and sequences, whips and pops, and Icarian games. There will also be opportunities for students to make special requests so that everyone is able to get what they are looking for. Outside of scheduled class times, there will be time to jam with each other and exchange ideas and skills…unless you rather enjoy the private access to the lagoon…or spend time chilling in the garden with a fresh drink ! Eitherway, you will leave Acrocamp feeling inspired to take what you have learned to your friends, companions or social circles… Also, we will provide you with some professional photography & video to keep the special memories.

THE ACROCAMP TEAM
– SuperDave (CA) – Acroyoga360
David Ung Aka Super Dave is a full time yoga and world-class acroyoga teacher based in Vaughan, Ontario. At the age of 13 he started martial arts which fueled his passion and commitment to movement practices. He continued to develop this passion through exploring various sports into adulthood. During his undergraduate studies he majored in Human Biology and Psychology at the University of Toronto – the highlight of these years was studying human potential with Dr. John Vervaeke and Dr. Jordan Peterson. Shortly after graduation he went on a spiritual quest of sorts, studying and researching spirituality in all forms, including Vipassana meditation, Taoism, Christianity, and the teachings of Abraham Hicks. He rekindled his love for movement upon discovering Yoga in 2007. In 2012 he decided he wanted to share his passion for movement and mindfulness as a yoga teacher and graduated from Yoga Tree teacher training under Jason Lu. One of the pleasant surprises during his training was being introduced to partner yoga by his colleague during lunch time. The seed was planted for what would turn into a full blown obsession for acroyoga. He has completed both the Acroyoga International and Acroyoga Montreal teacher training and also holds his own yearly training in Vaughan as the founder of Acroyoga360. When he’s not “yoga-ing or acro-ing” these days he loves experimenting with practices that pushes him outside his comfort zone like polyphasic sleep, juice fast, breath work, cold showers, travelling and engaging in conversations about human potential and extraterrestrials.

– Nicolas Gallois (FR) – AcroEgypt
Phys Ed., Acroyoga and Yoga teacher based in Egypt. Keen on body movement and continuous learning, Niko has been exposed to a wide range of competitive sports throughout his path as a physical education teacher. Overtime he considered alternative fun and sustainable practices, and took a journey in yoga (hatha, raja, power, yin). This led him to train and certify as hatha yoga RYT-200h teacher under the guidance of the unconventional Randall O’Leary in Thaïland. After attending an international Acroyoga workshopt, he quickly recognized the powerful benefits of this practice on one’s physical and mental health, and naturally became sincere about it. This passion led him to meet and train with amazing communities around the world… Inspirational international teachers literally lifted him up to develop Acroyoga in Egypt, although not being Egyptian. Niko offers various classes for acroyogis from all ways of life. From beginner level to athletes, his classes are adapted to the crowd’s abilities, in a safe and wildly fun environment. Niko has allegedly been reported dancing on shaaby music twice, but the investigation is ongoing. His greatest reward will be to welcome you into the Egyptian Community !
– Hoda Wahby (EG) – AcroEgypt
Talented fashion stylist and top swimmer in her country, by definition Hoda is the beachgirl living in the city. Since her teenage, she also had a crush on Vinyasa Yoga as a great complement to the mind and body. It is known that travelling can deeply shape a person, and luckily Hoda did a lot of that! Henry Miller once wrote “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things”… Years later, she was exposed to AcroYoga. This new experience left the Maadi girl intrigued yet she wasn’t really hooked until she could see it through a traveler eye: Foundation Course & Flight School in Egypt, Solar Immersion in Greece, PartnerAcro convention in Italy… And everything made suddenly sense…Aquatics meet Acrobatics! Between two fashion shoots, you now can find her playing some monkey business in the city or at the beach… Sea, surf, sun – what else can you possibly need? … Some Acro of course! Some rumors say that she is half-mermaid, but no valid proof has been brought up yet. Hoda will give you some helpful input so you can enjoy the most your acroflights, and show you ways to use water for recovery.
