Besides their activity as an Acro duo, Marysia is an aerialist and instructor of aerial acrobatics for children and adults. Julian is a circus artist, with wheel Acrobatics and Juggling. Back in 2019 they’ve won Poland’s Got Talent, which motivated them to keep on creating show acts, travel the world and share what they love. Both passionate about movement, education and art, they bring the perfect combination to the mat.
We are delighted to have these two badass and fun human beings on our retreat. They will be teaching the dynamic Acro part and share some genius moves with you.
Mito is a German movement enthusiast, who loves to geek out on tricks, progression, biomechanics, health and spirituality. But most of the vital stuff in life doesn’t just happen in the mind, so more importantly he loves to play, explore, co-create and dive into the flow of movement. Since 2014 it is also part of his passion to share his insights and experience in Acroyoga, handstands and Thai-Yoga-Massage. He teaches workshops throughout Europe and on festivals around the world. His strengths are precise instructions, on-the-spot cues and subtle progressions.
Leading this event and sharing his passion for movement and touch, Mito intends to facilitate a holistic and transformative experience of embodiment movement, where community can happen in a natural and joyful way.
Yogini by heart, world traveler by curiosity, dancer by passion. She has been teaching Yoga in Munich since 2013. As a former Capoeira player and dancer, she loves the flow in Yoga. She’s exchanged her business life for a life of a seeker – constantly moving towards a more harmonious life which shall feel good from the inside, instead of only looking good from the outside.
Vero will be teaching Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes in the mornings. In her classes she cares about breath and precise alignment, as well as smooth movement and fun during the practice.
Matteo is a certified AcroYoga Montreal Teacher. Since his early childhood he was spending as much time as possible in nature, exploring different types of movement, especially in the mountains. He discovers AcroYoga during an highline meeting and it was love at the first sight. Since that moment in 2015 he keeps on travelling through Europe (Italy and Spain in particular). Matteo loves to share food, tell (bad) jokes and introduce some of the funniest games alive. His main focus are the adaptability of the practice to the different types of body shapes and the safety for all the practioners.
Big smiles, funny moments and creativity inputs are the recipe of his workshops, all conducted in english with a little bit of italian accent and, of course, a lot of gestures 🙂 “Peace, love and balance”.
