HANUMAN POWER! Inversions Workshop for Metta Monkeys

Friday, Dec. 7, 19:30 – 21:30
Inversions and spotting give us the chance to deepen our trust in ourselves and others. In this workshop we will learn progressive training techniques, inspired by AcroYoga partner acrobatics, that help us build strength, refine alignment, bring awareness to the whole body and senses, and also are a lot of fun! We will devote ourselves to the head- and handstand: yoga asanas that give us a refreshing new perspective and invite us to grow beyond our self-made boundaries and expand the vision of our personal power. Working with partners creates a safe environment and gives us a valuable opportunity to learn to be fully there for others. We ignite our collective potential as we support each other to reach new heights. Just like Hanuman, the Monkey-God of Indian Mythology, we can experience how joyfully serving others with metta (loving compassion), can give us the key to unlocking our own full potential.
Level: this workshop is designed to be accessible to every practitioner, from beginner to advanced, and encourages personal transformation in an atmosphere of acceptance, celebration and safety. Come alone or bring a friend!

Let the Soul Soar AcroYoga Workshop with Winni and Sophia Ruhs

AcroYoga blends the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the loving kindness of Thai massage, and the dynamic power of Acrobatics. These three ancient lineages form this practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness. AcroYoga is a community based practice and invites you to experience the full spectrum of your being through opportunities to give and receive, support and to be supported, and to be strong and sensitive. This workshop series is open for ALL LEVELS, whether absolute beginners or experienced (Acro)yogis. Sophia and Winni Ruhs will create a safe space where each individual feels honored, supported, and enciuraged to reach for his or her highest potential! Come alone or bring a friend with!


SACRED TOUCH: therapeutic flying and Thai massage
Saturday 10:30 a.m to 6 p.m. With 2 hours lunch break from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
Come explore the healing and lunar aspects of AcroYoga with us as we dive deep into the healing traditions of Thai massage and flying therapeutics. By connecting with our breath, our heart, and our inner well of abundance we are able to joyfully connect with others. Thai massage, or “Nuad”, means “healing touch” and is a type of passive yoga and harmonizing massage. Therapeutic flying is an inverted aerial massage that brings the healing techniques of Thai massage into the air. Gravity’s pull allows us to bring our flyer into deep twists and stretches, supported on our hands and feet. As the spine is allowed to elongate, tension especially in the shoulders and back is released. Flying invites us to trust, let go, surrender and receive. Basing connects us with the earth element and gives us a deep feeling of rooting. Our nurturing qualities are awakened and by being fully present we are able to share from the heart, spreading healing energy and joy to others and ourselves. Enjoy the divine dance of giving and receiving, inhale and exhale that brings us to a place of bliss, joy and harmony!


YOGA IN THE AIR: Moving meditations with flying and inversions

Sunday 10:30 a.m to 6 p.m. With 2 hours lunch break from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Through different yoga and partner exercises we will learn to bring awareness into every cell of the body. By strengthening our core, we ignite the transformational fire of our solar plexus chakra where old patterns can be released to make room for new, uplifting ones! The support of our partners gives us the courage to try new movements and expand our potential, learning to fly and do things we might not have thought possible. We cultivate the ability to coach each other and learn to embrace positivity and teamwork. In this blanket of trust we become empowered and joyfully empower others. The wisdom of yoga inspires us to mindfulness, service and love. Inversions will be the topic of the day: by building strength, finding proper alignment, and keeping everything safe through using precise spotting techniques, we enjoy the dance between acrobatic strength and yogic elegance! We will enter new realms of movement by bringing familiar yoga poses in the air and weaving them into fluid flying transitions. A Thai massage sequence seals the day and awakens the loving, kind and receiving qualities in us all, bringing us to a place of peaceful harmony.
