My friend Eleanor and I have a great treat for you! Free dessert to bring home after for sweet endings!

This workshop is a wonderful way for you explore Acroyoga and bodywork safely.! What happens when Thai meets Fly? That’s right, not all acrobatics need to be sports, it can be quite therapeutic. This format is designed for you to learn more about your anatomy, and how to help it heal with the sports that we do in our life.

We will begin with a short yoga practice, then move onto acro therapeutic foundation training, to progress to Thai bodywork possibilities. Whether you have done acroyoga or not, we will guide you through anatomy variation considerations, and allow you to move energetically together to break a sweat, but to also nourish your joints, muscles and your mind.

This class is great when combined with the vinyasa class at YogaVibe that starts at 6pm or the acrojam. Or consider coming just for this. Beginner friendly workshop. No partner needed. Bring a friend or be prepared to meet new ones.

$20 includes dessert to bring home and wonderful experienced knowledge. Can’t beat!

About Eleanor:

Eleanor is a mover. She has been teaching yoga since 2006, and practicing yoga since the age of six! As a child and teen she was a competitive swimmer. After college she began mountaineering and fell in love with acrobatics and dancing. Recently, primal movement training has transformed how she moves.

A seeker of self understanding, Eleanor studied Early Developmental Psychology and after college spent considerable time in a Buddhist Monastery. She continues striving to deepen a personal practice and mindfulness. Her dedication to serve took her to Central America for three years, and India for two years, where she worked with children and created projects helping local communities. After 5 years learning, growing, and serving she returned to Baltimore and continued academic studies in Psychology, and Nutrition.

In 2010, she began working as a senior instructor and mentor during Yoga Teacher Trainings (YTT). And in 2011, although still based in Baltimore, she began traveling part time teaching workshops and modules for advanced YTTs. In 2014, she opened a second office on the West Coast offering structural treatment in two locations and expanding her clinical practice. Commuting between coasts so often was the inspiration for a fully nomadic lifestyle, and in late 2014 she got a (large) storage locker and a (medium) sized suitcase….. and has been a nomad since!

Still full time on the road, she co creates beauty with her partner Derek. Their mutual love of good food, movement, and play is nourishment to fuel the travel!
