barefootyoga.me – Quantum Soul Retreat 2021

Quantum Soul Retreat (19th July – 25th July 2021)
This training offers you a wide range of playful elements, including principles of acrobatics (L-basing, washing machines, whips, pops and flows), functional movement, open play, contact improvisation, martial arts, bodywork, yin yoga and community building. The core of this week will be about cultivating trust, strength and flexibility, within ourselves and as a group of dedicated movers.

Our teaching style:
Our classes are held in an uplifting, fun and refreshing way. By splitting the main workshops into two levels we can ensure that beginners as much as intermediate practitioners are being met on their level of experience.

Your holiday package:
Alongside an extensive schedule filled with 5 workshops a day, you will find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. We strive to only chose the best locations to make sure our participants get enough time in a nurturing environment.

Mornings: Following a warm-up of functional movement and yoga, we will work on building up a fundamental skill set in acroyoga. The integration and focus on inversions, handstands and L-basing flows will be an essential part of your morning practice.

Afternoons: In the afternoon, we will dedicate our time to a more playful side of moving. Depending on the group there will be classes in contact improvisation, martial arts, partner games and free training with coaches waiting for you.

Evenings: After a full day of movement exploration, we will round off the day with a nourishing meal and a connective evening therapeutics class.

The certified eco farm (who produces milk and cheese) offers the perfect environment to tune in and recharge.

Dining with us:
We strive to provide local and seasonal food from the eco-farm itself and farms around the area as much as possible. Three times a day we will tickle your palate with vegan and vegetarian delights made by our famous barefootyoga kitchen crew.

Your Quantum Soul team 2021:

Gabriel Schüers

Originally from Austria, Gabe loves to spend his time traveling, learning about other cultures and eating foreign food. With a heart full of humor and arms so long he once managed to hug 5 people at once, he is facilitating a wide variety of trainings in Europe and South East Asia. Gabe is well known for his unique and precise way of teaching.

Lorena Schneider

What fascinates her about Acroyoga is its capacity to connect people from all walks and teach them to communicate needs and boundaries through movement within a safe and fun space. Ever since she stumbled across a crowd in the park stacking people on top of each other, she has found herself in a community driven by teamwork, inclusiveness, and mutual support. At the end of the day, the biggest reward for her is to see your beautiful faces when you realize you just achieved something you thought was impossible.

Lorena brings awarenes to communication and expression into her classes and co-teaches a variety of handstand and partner acro to the barefootyoga.me community - we are happy to have her joining us!

Camilla Pelligrini

Camilla is an enthusiastic teacher whose journey in movement begun with yoga. After a few years of deep immersion in this practice, her path unraveled into many other disciplines such as acrobatics, dance and massage therapy. In her acro practice she likes to balance fluidity and precision, and loves to interchange roles. She is constantly amazed by the power of creativity and exploration in movement, and her biggest motivation as a teacher is the chance to share all the gifts she received in this journey.

Camilla will be teaching Acrobatics to our community. Always ready for a joke and italian swag she will be rocking the stage and co-teaching most of the acro classes.
Mito FlyingMonkey

Born and raised in Germany, Mito now lives a nomadic lifestyle exploring and teaching movement, acrobatics, Yoga and bodywork. Movement and its diverse effects and qualities have blessed Mito with lots of precious moments, insights and connections. From (re)discovering the joy of play and exploration, to health, power and freedom, to teamwork and social skills, and even to profound spirituality. Now it is also part of his passion to share these experiences.
Teaching Acro at this event, Mito intends to facilitate a holistic, transformative experience of embodiment, where open and sincere experiencing of movement, the self and others can happen in a natural, intuitive and joyful way. A place where the inner child can thrive and shine.

David Worrow

The knowledge and experience I have acquired in the different disciplines I practice (be it visual arts, movement arts, massage therapies, languages…) relate in strange ways and nourish one another. Eventually I found the common thread of all these: education; transmitting what I know to others, which ties all of them together. My objective is to merge the rigorous and efficient Cambridge language teaching methods with the fun and communicative Acro teaching techniques, and add a creative edge from my arts education. Out of all of these, Acro has been by far the one which has most taught me about myself and others.

David loves to learn from his peers as much as he loves to teach. His classes are technically refined, well progressed, fun and most important adressed to any age, background, or gender. David makes no difference, he includes everybody as they are.
Elena Ayala

Originally from Andalucía (the sunny part of Spain), Elena has always had the urge to travel the world and see what is beyond the horizon. As a result, she developed a deep love for Mediterranean food, inspired by the different tastes she has experienced on her travels. Elena believes in organic and local products but she is also passionate about growing her own vegetables and fruits. When she is not in the kitchen, she is also a circus acrobat, mover and lover of life. During her free time, she spends most of her time being upside down, exploring dance, contact improvisation and partner acrobatics which she aims to combine into a stunning circus performance.
Elena delight your taste buds with three delicious meals a day.
