Marco and Jessica
Marco Galvan & Jessica Pietribaisi are two AcroYoga teachers from Italy. Passionate about movement parkour, acroyoga, icarian and hand2hand, they are teaching regular classes and workshops around Europe. The deepening of these disciplines, accompanied by an innate curiosity for movement have provided them with an attentive and functional look at the acrobatic universe. Together they are experimenting with this expressive movement art and are looking forward to share their joy with you on this retreat.
Marco & Jessica will be teaching a broad mixture of Icarians, Pops, Hand2hand and other italian flavoured movement skills.
Juri is a playful AcroYoga teacher, Circus Performer, Musician and Artist of many Disciplines based in Berlin. 10 years ago after studying Architecture and Sculpture (fine art) he discovered his passion for AcroYoga and Partner Acrobatics. Since then he’s researching, teaching and performing a mixture of Acroyoga combined with the pleasure of the game from physical theater which he studied at physical theater schools in France.
Juri will be teaching Acrobatics and share his playful style with you during this retreat.
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.eu community – we are happy to have her joining us!
