Spring Upside Down Retreat 2019
barefootyoga.me Retreats for Heart n’ Soul ॐ
In our retreats we are teaching basic and advanced techniques with up to 8 hours of daily practice, including Acrobatics, Yoga, Contact Improvisation, Thai Massage & Meditation. Together we are going to explore the offerings of a professional movement based mentoring customized to the practitioner’s individual level and needs. This journey of self-discovery will not only help you to deepen your practice but will also unfold an essential aspect of your innermost self.
About the Practice:
This retreat is offering you a wide range of playful elements, including important principles 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.
Your Holiday Package:
Alongside the intensive practice (its up to you how many classes you’re going to join), you will find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. Refresh yourself plashing in one of the two pools, explore the surrounding nature, take an afternoon stroll to the beach or a quick ride into town, which could be Rovinj or Pula (two of the most beautiful towns in all of Croatia).
Doesn’t matter if you are a pro or have little to no experience in AcroYoga or Acrobatics. We will be teaching two levels simultaneously to make sure that everyone is getting their dose of matching input. Beginner/Intermediate participants will learn a solid, holistic foundation in AcroYoga & Partner Acrobatics. Intermediate/Advanced participants will be focusing on L-basing Tempos (whips, pops & dynamic entries/exits, as well the art of hand2hand and handbalancing).
Following a playful warm-up of functional movement & yoga, we will work on building up a substantial 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 essential 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 personal movement coaching waiting for you. Take this time as an opportunity 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 connective bodywork practice or yin yoga.

Amid endless hectares of olive groves we will reside in 200-year-old and newly renovated farmhouses. The smell of lavender, rosemary and other mediterran herbs is so omnipresent that it’ll be easy to pour our full energy into the adventure of movement exploration. We have 2 pools and the ocean is only 2,5 km away from the location. Jeah! 🙂
