About the event
Fridays AcroYoga Class/Jam from 6-9 pm (until Spring 2024 ;)
---- Fridays AcroClass from 6-7:30 pm ----
Have you ever seen people balancing on each other upside-down and thought "I want to do that!". Now's your chance to try this playful practice in a fun, safe environment.
Come alone or bring your friends! No experience required.
Flexibility is NOT required, and neither is previous acroyoga or yoga experience. Simply arrive open to connection and ready to play!
Here are the skills that you will learn:
- the three main roles of AcroYoga: basing, flying & spotting
- partner and group warm-ups
- safe spotting techniques
- exercises for strength & flexibility
- tips for effective communication (especially when upside-down!)
- therapeutics & Thai massage techniques to wind down
You'll be challenged in the best ways, but you can always opt out of any exercises! Communication and consent are a huge part of acro!
The classes will equip you with the foundations to play with solid technique and safety in mind so you can join our weekly jams with confidence!
---- Fridays AcroJams from 7:30 - 9 pm ----
What's a JAM?
Acroyoga jams are unstructured get-togethers to practice, train and work on previous skills, experiment on new ones, and play! If you're coming solo, there are always people to play with, lend advice and spot! It's a great time to grow this budding community.
----- What to bring 🧳 -----
- fitted clothes, no pockets (loose and flowy items can get tangled!)
- besides hair ties, leave the accessories and jewelry at home
At Axé Capoeira, 133 5th street Courtenay, BC, Canada

----- Your teachers 🍎 -----
🧘♀️Daiana has been practicing AcroYoga for over 13 years and got her certification with AcroYoga International in 2014. This practice woke up her inner child that explores connection with others from a trust, playful and joyful way. She has been sharing her passion all over the globe and at Comox Valley where she rooted herself since 2018.
Aside from Acroyoga, Daiana is a Yoga instructor, masseuse and a momma of a 21 months old busy boy :)))
🤸♂️Victor is a connected movement practitioner and therapeutics teacher fascinated by human connection through creativity, communication, play and touch. He was introduced to AcroYoga in 2016, and is influenced by his teacher training with VancityAcro in 2018, Movement Flow with Slava Goloubov in 2020 and teachers from AcroYoga Montréal and AcroYoga International.
To balance these solar practices, he's been deep diving into "Nuad Bo-Rarn", the Northern Style of ancient Thai massage. He's been fortunate to have taught workshops and retreats around the world including Sayulita, Tokyo, and Bali, but now calls Comox Valley home.
