AcroYoga with Marc

AcroYoga blends the joyful power of acrobatics, the wisdom of Hatha Yoga and the loving-kindness of Thai-Yoga massage. This practice 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.

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

So come enjoy pure acroyoga goodness with Marc! Depending on who’s in the room & our mood, we help each other into inversions and handstands, we fly each other in acro postures, transitions, washing machines, pops… All this fun is balanced by giving each other therapeutic flying & recovery massage.

About the Teacher – Marc Bauchet

I transitioned from martial arts to yoga at the end of 2001 with daily practice, evolving through various styles over the years (Bikram, Iyengar, Ashtanga, Contact Yoga). To follow my passion for taking yoga and massage in the air, i became certified in teaching AcroYoga and Tulayoga. In the continuity of my love for connected movement I also dived in Contact Improvisation and Argentine tango, which are now weaved into my teaching. AcroYoga allows me to connect the healing modalities I studied (Thai massage, Tulayoga, Rolfing) and the fiery fun of partner acrobatics.
