TEACHER

more to come...

Loli & Gabe are two movement enthusiasts that bring a juicy combination onto the mats. Their approach to Acro is gentle, playful yet sophisticated. During their trainings they put a lot of focus on sustainability, communication, and trust. Their mission is to offer a holistic and safe movement practice that empowers and connects people from all around the globe.

Gabriel Schüers founder of barefootyoga.me & ishine photography is an Acrobatics & Yoga instructor, as well as Massage Therapist with more than 15 years of experience. Gabe is well known for his unique and precise way of teaching. His passion for bodywork gives him the opportunity to welcome and embrace people from all walks of life and encourage them to find freedom through movement and touch.

Lorena Schneider, known as Loli, is a Switzerland based partner-acrobatics.com teacher sharing her passion for movement, quality of communication and fun. Loli loves to spend her time upside down, exploring new ways of moving or geeking out about fine nuances in Acro. As a linguist she is passionate about language and culture which influence us in our daily life as well as on the mat practicing together.

Kasper Moritz Nielsen and Marie-Therese Pallis are an acroyoga couple with a passion for technical details and exploring the limits of stability. Their approach to teaching uses both carefully planned progressions as well as games and challenges, to break down the material to manageable sizes. Through presenting core concepts, they invite the students to develop their own understanding through reflection. They love to give the acro a scent of leading and following through nonverbal communication, or playing around with imposed limitations to discover challenging balances and transitions.

Catch them if you don’t only want a new washingmachine, but also want to know the principals of how it works, and how to use those, to make your acro run smoother in general

Juri Kussmaul & Elena Ayala
Juri is a certified AcroYoga teacher, circus performer, musician and artist of many disciplines. Originally from Kyrgyzstan, 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 (Phillippe Gaulier) and Italy (Matteo Destro).
Well known for his circus duo Barada Street and his playful Acroyoga classes he's travelling the world and sharing his passions.

Elena studied circus performance at CAO in Granada. She's a playful acrobatic teacher and circus performer.  

Elena and Juri met in 2020 at the Partner Acrobatic Teachers Training in Spain. In this time they got to know each other and realized that they have a common philosophy of practicing and teaching partner acrobatics. Since this time they are working on a flamenco acrobatic show to share their passion with the world

„Every human has the inherent necessity to learn, imitate, connect and understand. As Children we learn with fun and pleasure. Becoming an adult we lose this connection of playing and learning for different reasons. Life gets more serious and our „inner critic“ is growing so that we get blocked in our body and mind to express and enjoy ourselves. In the game we're children again who trust in their impulses, enthusiasm and playfulness. We see and embrace this quality in practicing Acroyoga and look forward to playing with you in a trustful atmosphere.“

In yoga I live in the moment and am in the flow. I feel the connection to myself and my body, to myself as a small part of the big picture. My yoga is creative and dynamic and primarily aims to be fun. At the same time, it can also encourage a change of perspective and go a layer deeper. Because as a psychologist and Vinyasa Yoga teacher with training in Somatic Awareness, the focus is on the playful connection and health of body and mind.

Anja Commer
acroyoga & movement

Anja Commer aka. AnYeah Fitness has been teaching movement sessions since 2016. In the AcroYoga community she feels at home and enjoys the open and heartful communication with each other. For Anja the best experience in AcroYoga is to be able to grow way upon your personal potential because together you are stronger. She feels carried and is able to let herself go - especially in a big, warm cuddle net. She wants to be able to fly and base every acroposition and to be able to do it on the left side as well as on the right side.

She offers training which consists of functional movement patterns which are performed without any equipment. Fun is the key factor in her training and so the physical limit gets expanded, the participant is getting more flexible, gains endurance and of course stronger. After each movement session there follows the regeneration and for this process Anja leads you through active stretches and shows you myofascial self massage with help of fascia equipment.
