After such a great session last month, AcroYoga is returning to Bulimba for a special 3 hour foundational workshop!
AcroYoga delves into acrobatic principles and infuses it with a yogic consciousness. It is partner work, play and connection, enhanced by fine tuning the way in which you communicate. AcroYoga is a fun, exciting and inspiring practice and is for everyone. One does not need to be a professional acrobat or mover to partake in this fusion of movement modalities. The essence of AcroYoga is being in the moment in balance with another.
If you've thinking of trying AcroYoga but don't know where to start, or if you have been previously introduced to it and want to discover more about the foundations so you can progress and broaden your practice... then this workshop is for you!
This 3 hour workshop will give you the skills and confidence to begin your AcroYoga practice. Explore the techniques and principles to lift your flyer with ease or fly in the air like a bird. Develop trust and ways to offer support and communicate your needs and feel the byproducts of fun and laughter emerge from this practice.
This workshop is held at our Bulimba studio by experienced AcroYogi Nirvana Pilkington.

About your facilitator:
It all started with twirling and popping people on my nimble hands and feet as a young child. Siblings, friends, children, adults were all a means to explore my physical strength and balance. It wasn’t until I stepped through the doors of Vulcana Women’s circus, 8 and a half years ago did I see that this could be more than household play. Soon, I began practising acrobalance and handstands and found a partner to train with. Over the next couple of years, I continued to play and perform with different partners and with Vulcana.
In 2011, I entered my first yoga teacher training and launched into acro with Renae. From watching YouTube clips of this thing called AcroYoga, these acrobatic flows became part of our movement practice. We combined forces with Tanya, an AcroYoga teacher in Brisbane to develop our skills. A fusion of acrobalance and Anti-Gravity yoga was established and Renae and I taught classes in West End. In 2013, the Montreal Teacher Training enhanced my growing knowledge of AcroYoga (Level 1 & 2, 200hrs). This intensive training inspired further exploration of the art form, both personally and professionally.
Regular classes and workshops have since been run in Kangaroo Point, Brisbane and a Stradbroke Island Immersion twice a year. I have been host to a number of acroyoga and acrobatic teachers enhancing the skills of our community. After travelling in the USA with Audrey in 2015, where we met, learnt and shared with various acro communities (acroyoga, circus, partner acrobatics, cheerleading), I have returned with a strong desire to share this knowledge with new and experienced students.
