ACROYOGA FOR THE COMMON GOOD.

DARE TO LOSE CONTROL AND

TURN YOUR WORLD UPSIDE DOWN.

COURSE INFORMATION

This innovative course is aimed at those people who are looking to experience new sensations, positive experiences and fun. In addition, this course offers the opportunity to live values as necessary as respect for oneself and others, diversity, cooperation or self-care in one's own skin. Words and talks are superfluous, it is time for the real language...time to listen, to look, to feel, to play...

 

We invite you to turn your world upside down and put it back in place from another perspective, with a new look, the look of the child you once were. When you do, you will feel much better and will want to share this experience with the people you care about.

 

In this course you will learn basic acroyoga techniques and postures. This  discipline was born in 2003 in San Francisco, USA, from Jason Nemer and Jenny Saner Klein. In the words of its founders: "Acroyoga is about integrating the wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness of the therapeutic arts and the dynamism of acrobatics into a practice that allows people to feel a greater connection with their individual well-being and the well-being of others''.

 

This connection with oneself and with one's environment that the founders of this discipline speak of is precisely what we, the teachers, long for in the educational field, both in the teacher-student relationship and in the student-student and/or teacher-teacher relationship. In this aspect acroyoga is surprisingly useful in carrying out this mission. This course is aimed at all teachers who wish to know how to improve the environment in their centres, especially those in which conflicts are continually generated, those who wish to deal with unresolved issues between the teaching staff and, in general, those who wish to opt for an alternative way of creating impact and leave behind passive master classes.

METHODOLOGY

The methodology will be theoretical and practical, research and experimental, as we will study in detail the benefits of acroyoga in situations of conflict in the classroom, as an anti-stress method for teachers and how the relationship between body-mind influences the practice of acroyoga. And all this, through our body.

 

The practice of acroyoga is carried out in groups of a minimum of three people, being supervised at all times by the trainers. Each person will rotate in the three roles (flyer, base and spotter). This practice is 100% safe and can be carried out by all people regardless of age or physical condition. No previous experience is required, nor you need to come with a partner.

MAIN OBJECTIVES

- Cultivate confidence, joy and strength.

- To develop the capacity for active listening, humility and relaxation.

- To become aware of the present moment and balance ourselves in our life by connecting with ourselves and our environment.

- Knowing how to apply this practice in conflict resolution.

- To transmit the teachings of acroyoga to teachers in order to increase well-being in the educational field.

 

  • Specific objectives:

- To learn about the discipline of acroyoga (lunar, solar and Thai massage).

- To understand the physical and mental benefits of acroyoga.

- To experience basic postures of the lunar and solar phases.

- To know and practice the techniques of Thai massage to restore our body and that of others.

- Perform yoga sequences as a couple to start acroyoga sessions.

- Increase our own body awareness.

- Listen to our body's needs and learn to respect them.
