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. There are 7 main elements that make up the practice: circle ceremony, asana, partner flow, Thai massage, therapeutic flying, inversions & spotting, and partner acrobatics.
Our highest aim is to bring individuals into a state of union with themselves, with each other, and with the divine. From this place of mutual support the true self can be realized, celebrated and shared for the benefit of all.

I first discovered AcroYoga, browsing around the internet.
I remember seeing the pictures and the videos and feeling so excited and grateful that somebody had but these three lineages together and had created such a beautiful practice. I began to play with my friends, trying to do acrobatics imitating the pictures I had printed out. Until I found my first base (Andresito) in Mexico and there is when I really began to fly.
We learned to do everything only by watching AcroYoga Videos. It wasn’t until my dear sister Kathy whom I played a lot with went to study at the Circus School in San Francisco that the connection was made. When she got there she recognized Jason from the pictures we used to play with.
They met, played, and talked. Kathy told me all about it. After that I e-mailed Jason directly, without knowing him, and asked him if he would come to Mexico to do a weekend workshop.
Off course I was drawing it out there, never really considering he would say yes. To my surprise not only did he say yes, but he also confessed that he was actually born in Mexico City. He came, the workshop was a great success, our brotherly mexican bond was created and 5 months later I was doing my teacher training.
Since then I’ve had the blessing of sharing around the world this beautiful practice that makes the world shine brighter!
