In our Retreats we are teaching basic and advanced techniques with up to 8 hours of daily practice including Acrobatics, Functional Movement, Yoga, Contact Improvisation & Bodywork. Together we are going to explore the offerings of a professional movement based mentoring customised to the practitioner’s individual level and needs.

About the Practice:
This retreat is offering you a wide range of playful elements, including important principals of Acrobatics (L-basing, Washing Machines, Whips, Pops & Flows), Functional Movement, Open Play, Contact Improvisation, Axis Syllabus, Martial Arts, Bodywork, Yin Yoga and much more. The heart of this week will be about cultivating trust, strength and flexibility, within ourselves and as a group.

Our Goal:
Doesn’t matter if you are a pro, you have little or none experience in AcroYoga or Acrobatics. We will be teaching two levels simuntaniously to make sure that everyone is getting their dose of Acro. Beginner/Intermediate participants will learn a wholistic fundation in AcroYoga & Partner Acrobatics. Intermedaite/Advanced participants will be focusing on L-basing Tempos (whips, pops & dynamic entries/exits, as well the art of hand2hand).

Your Holliday Package:
Alongside the intensive practice you will find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. You have the chance to refresh yourself in the Lake Bohinj, take a walk around the lake, explore the surrounding nature of Triglavski National Park and visit the stunning Sevica waterfalls. If you love water this is the place to be! Local sport agencies are offering you different activities like cave explorations, SUP or rafting.


Daily routine:

Following an playful warmup in functional movement & yoga, you will learn how to build up the day with an important skill set in Acrobatics. In this time of the day each one of you will find their own level and achievements. The integration and focus on inversions, handstands and L-basing flows will be an important foundation to start with. In the afternoon we dedicate our time to the playful side of moving. There will be optional classes, contact improvisation and individual movement based coachings waiting for you. Take this time as an oppertunity to work on specific tricks and refine them with your barefootyoga teachers. After a full day of moving & exploring we will round the day up with a feasty dinner and a final connective bodywork practice or yin yoga.

The Venue:
Surrounded by mountains and crystal clear water we will find shelter in the midst of a Slovenian natural park. Your riverside rooms within our shared appartments includes access to a private kitchen and a bathroom. The gentle humming of the river is so omnipresent that it’ll be easy to pour our full energy into the adventure of movement exploration. Follow the river for about 3 minutes to reach Lake Bohinj and enjoy the fresh water up close. Every night when the sky is clear and the moon comes out, it is an breathtaking experience to gaze at the moon reflected on the lake.

Dining with us:
We strive to provide you local and seasonal food from eco-villages and organic markets around the area. Three times a day we will tickle your palate with vegetarian delights from our barefootyoga.me kitchen.
