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, 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. This journey of self-discovery will not only help you to deepen your practice but will also unfold an essential aspect of your most inner self.
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.
Your Holliday Package:
Alongside the intensive practice (its up to you how many classes you’re joining) you will find many opportunities to spend your time outdoors. You have the chance to refresh yourself 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 whole Croatia).
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. Intermediate/Advanced participants will be focusing on L-basing Tempos (whips, pops & dynamic entries/exits, as well the art of hand2hand).
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.

In the midst of endless hectares of olive groves we will find shelter in 3 200-year-old and newly renovated farmhouses. The smell of lavender, rosemary and other 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 2,5km away from the location. Jeah! 🙂
