So, what is AcroYoga?
AcroYoga elevates the connection between you and others through movement, connection, and play. Acro in Greek means high, or elevated. Yoga in Sanskrit commonly translates to notions of union, or joining. The experience of taking flight with AcroYoga instantly dissolves fears and invites practitioners to tap into new and infinite possibilities of communication, trust, and union. By combining acrobatics, yoga, and healing arts, the practice of AcroYoga has built a community of active teachers and practitioners all over the world.
AcroYoga International was founded by Jason Nemer and Jenny Sauer-Klein in 2003. They were the first to codify the AcroYoga practice in 2006. Their work culminated into not only manuals, but also cultivated formalized educational paths that have promoted the highest levels of safety, expression, and straight up fun.
It blends three main elements:
- Solar Acrobatic Practices cultivate trust, empowerment and joy
- Lunar Therapeutic Practices that cultivate listening, compassion and letting go
- Yogic Practices that cultivate breath awareness, life balance and connection
Jason Nemer & Jenny Sauer-Klein were the first to codify and create the educational path to certify teachers in the practice of AcroYoga. Together, they trained and made practice manuals for the public, trained teachers and still travel the world sharing the practice. By literally writing the book of AcroYoga, they unified the language between acrobats and yogis in different communities around the world.
