Acroyoga at School

Acroyoga at School

Sometimes things just work in synchronicity. My students had been learning about well-being and many different types of fitness, and a friend of mine asked if a visiting acroyoga teacher could teach at my school. I was already booked to attend his workshop the next day, so wanted to see if he would be good at not only teaching adults, but also kids. Olí, Oliver Chamorro Moreno, was amazing! I knew my students would love him. I got the okay from my boss for Olí to come be a guest teacher, and it was a go.

We started by introducing ourselves with a movement that our classmates needed to repeat.

A sweet time at the closing circle was hearing the students describe how acroyoga uses many different ways of well-being. They realized it was not only physical, but a lot about trust, listening, and making connection.

Thank you Oli and David
