Acroyoga Teacher Training

Nov 16-27 2022
80 hours - 4 teachers

Get certified to share what you love! Over 12 days polish your acro skills while you learn to teach acroyoga.

Bryce Hodgkinson, Elliot Fudge, Hayley Silberg, and Miles Kroeker all discovered acroyoga through different movement modalities and bring complementary perspectives on how to develop confident and capable acro teachers. We want to empower people to grow safe, creative, inclusive acroyoga communities. We have crafted this intensive program which offers students biomechanical tools and practical facilitation skills to share acro with the world.

 

Each module covers close to 2 full days and includes skill fundamentals, teaching practice, and theory discussions. This teacher training will culminate in a practical and written assessment, and ultimately, instill in each participant the efficacy to share acro in their own safe, unique and vibrant style. Unless your natural style isn't vibrant.

 

Location

Most days are at Move to Move, located at 1010-2600 Portland St SE, Calgary, AB T2G 4M6.

The final day is a small festival taught entirely by the new teachers.
