Have you always wanted to get into Acro Yoga but aren’t sure where to start? Have you done a few classes and are ready to step up your game? Then this Acro Yoga foundations progressive series is for you! In this 5 week series we’ll start with the basics and get into the nitty gritty details that will equip you with the skills needed to go deeper into your practice. By the end of our classes together you’ll be basing, flying, and spotting poses and flows you didn’t even know were possible! No need to bring a partner, and all levels are welcome!

Your Guides:

Alicia Graham: Alicia is a Partner Acrobatics teacher, facilitator, and dancer, who frequently combines the three to share experiences of transformation, connection, and authenticity. She is passionate about human connection and completely believes that our capacity for connection is directly proportional to our ability to change the world for the better.

Alicia is certified to teach Partner Acrobatics, Dancing Freedom, and Hatha Yoga. She also works with empathy and non-violent communication in her community life, mediation, and personal relationships. For more information send her an e-mail at alicia@unify.org.

Paul Gelinas: One of my goals in the acro community is to communicate the powerful metaphor of acro yoga to all participants. A playful practice can often surprise us and destroy preconceived ideas of what we tell ourselves is possible. Amongst other things, I use acro as an access point to empowerment and connection. I use playfulness and humour to help participants develop the confidence and skills needed to progress safely and creatively.

I am a co-founder of Vancouver Acro Festival, an active member of the community, and I lead regular acro classes in Vancouver. I have completed a 500 hour yoga teacher training, a 300 hour Yoga Therapeutics training, and have been certified as a personal trainer for nearly 10 years.

When not teaching, I can be found pursuing my endless interest in movement arts, competitively playing sports (though pretending to not be competitive), tending to my garden, exploring BC’s natural landscape, or studying the countless things I'm curious about.
