Description

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

Jeff Mandell will be co-teaching this class with Johanna Wise from Kripalu! Read her bio below!

AcroYoga is a mix of acrobatic concepts and therapeutic Thai massage, with a yogic consciousness and the creative process. Working in partnerships of two, three, or more, the practice builds confidence in yourself, as you foster trust with old and new friends. Anyone and any body can learn.

This class is open to teens and adults (13 and up) and perfect for beginner [acro]yogis but ALL skill levels are welcome!

This workshop will focus on:

*Foundational Alignment

*Partner balances and inversions

*Strengthening the body through partner exercises

*Guided partner stretching and massage (in the air)

Come alone or with a partner (or with a group of three others for an even greater discount!).

NO experience needed!

Note: If you plan on paying in cash at the door and not online through eventbrite please let us know in advance so that we can manually add you to our attendee list. Thank you <3

JOHANNA WISE'S BIO:

Johanna Wise is devoted to generating peace, bliss, health and healing through the practices of yoga, acroyoga, Massage & Bodywork.

Johanna is a certified AcroYoga teacher, a 500-hr Kripalu Yoga Teacher, and licensed massage therapist/ massage instructor. Johanna serves as Lead Healing Arts Therapist/ yoga teacher/ program presenter at Kripalu, teaches at several studios, and has a private practice. Johanna is passionate about sharing the profound ways in which yoga and bodywork reconnect us to our bodies and ourselves.

When Johanna discovered acroyoga, she fell in love. Acroyoga brought together elements of all of the most influential practices that had long been part of Johanna's life - gymnastics, dance, yoga, massage, and intimacy & relational work/ conscious communication. Like gymnastics, acroyoga engages the practitioner in creative, playful movement, and offers an experience of "flying" through the air. Acroyoga also brings in the spirituality of yoga, and the deep healing and connection of massage. Acoryoga is at its core, a practice of collaboration and co-creation, and in this way brings in conscious communication.

Johanna's favorite part of teaching acroyoga is seeing her students surprise themselves with courage and strength they didn't know they had.
