Spring Yoga Retreat

AcroYoga combines acrobatic concepts with a yogic consciousness.  It offers a unique path to connect with others, to build trust, and to communicate in new ways.  The more acrobatic inspired movements can challenge and take us to energetic highs, while therapeutic poses ground and centre.  The practice is diverse, and continues to grow, offering ever new means of expressing ourselves, being creative and having fun.
