I'll just say I am stoked to encourage others who have the passion and desire to share what they love! If you have any questions about this TT and if its the one for you please feel free to reach out!
  • One of the most beautiful aspects of AcroYoga is its ability to connect us to a sense of community. In a day and age where this experience is severely lacking for the majority of us, many people find solace in practices that strengthen our bonds to others on common ground. AcroYoga is unique in that not only do we form a community that shares inspiration and ideals, but we are able to forge bonds across widely-varied lifestyles, backgrounds, ideas, you name it - and come together in the purity of play. Play - another aspect of humanity that is severely underdeveloped these days. AcroYoga hits on both of these vital components at once. And this might be why you feel drawn to this practice - even if it’s never been articulate in that way before. It’s this inherent, underlying yearning we all share - to taste freedom, meaningful connection, and exploration. Acro provides us a safe space to do all of this together. www.vancityacro.com
  • MEET YOUR TEACHERS: Slava Goloubov has been practicing AcroYoga for 5 years, in addition to countless other disciplines including Hand-to-Hand and Circus Arts, Martial Arts, Yoga, and more. Slava has devoted himself wholeheartedly to pursuing the path of movement exploration. He teaches full-time around the city of Vancouver out of local gyms, studios, & his own private studio. Slava has taught thousands of students internationally in his classes, private training sessions, retreats, & teacher trainings. Aside from co-owning and operating VanCityAcro as a business and university, Slava runs his own self-titled brand, keeping him in movement full-time. When he is not teaching his students, he is investing in his own personal development and skill acquisition to be sure to bring the most cutting-edge information, techniques, & innovations back to his classes. Devon French As it’s Co-Founder, Devon French has been with VanCityAcro since its inception 5 years ago. Devon is also a certified personal trainer, & Hatha Yoga teacher, though he has always made AcroYoga a priority above his countless other disciplines of study and delivery. Much like Slava, Devon has trained in myriad movement modalities, including ballet, circus, martial arts, & dance. This integrative approach is one of the reasons that Slava and Devon work so well together. Devon’s role as a father to his son Dash also informs his understanding of the value of community, and of creating a “safe space” for individuals to gather, grow, and explore themselves and their connections. Devon’s warmth and approachability, coupled with his years of experience, makes him a highly sought-after teacher by many in the local Vancouver community. THE ORIGINS Devon and Slava met at Prana College while completing their Yoga Teacher Training (YTT.) They stumbled upon AcroYoga in their time together there. At the time, it was hardly known and practiced even less locally. The two friends spent countless hours laughing, playing, (falling!) – and little did they know what was to come of all of that time. The rest, is history, as they say. Reflecting upon the evolution of VanCityAcro professionally, and ourselves personally, over the last five years has been deeply insightful. So much time has passed, and yet it feels like the blink of an eye. Because this practice has been very much “play” rather than “work”, even though that’s exactly what it has demanded – practice, and what many would consider hard work – we have had nothing but fun the whole way. This has shown us what is possible when you enjoy the journey – when the process is just as important as the progress. www.vancityacro.com
  • And of course, we would be remiss if we didn't give an ode to one of the cornerstones of AcroYoga, Yoga itself. Developing ourselves as individuals is just as vital as our partner play. When we refine our skills on the ground and on our own, we bring a more complete portion of the equation to anyone we partner with. We will train foundational conditioning, strength, flexibility, and mobility drills to temper our AcroYoga-specific regimen. This will be a perfect compliment to the practice and of course, will transfer to your general movement capacities. These will be takeaways for you to immerse yourself in during the program and integrate after into your own home practice. www.vancityacro.com
  • We are all teachers, every day. Someone asks for directions or you help someone else out in the kitchen. Some of our participants enter into the program with the clear vision of becoming AcroYoga teachers as their vocation. Others enter into this intense period of study and practice simply to further their own personal practice. All reasons are, of course, perfectly welcome. Whichever is yours, learning the skills to be a teacher will transfer to all areas of your life, whatever you decide to do with this particular training focus. Becoming better teachers allows us to also become better partners, parents, friends, co-workers - whatever roles we find ourselves in. Understanding clear communication and finding useful tools for connection will be relevant to any relationships and environments. We call it “Teacher Training” but you could just as well coin it “personal development” or a number of other appropriate titles. www.vancityacro.com
  • These 12 days will demand your determination and persistent application. Our pre-requisites are the bare minimum and we will expect you to exceed them so that we can progress to our group's greatest potential. If we each show up fully present and ready to dive deep, we can really leverage our time together and cover the most ground possible. We have designed a well-rounded curriculum for this training that will cover the following: - Flexibility via training splits, etc. - Inversions via hand-balancing, etc. - Conditioning via solo/partner core exercises, etc. - Washing machines - Static poses Along with plenty of teaching time so that you really get real-time experience curating the container for groups of people and all of the dynamics at play in such situations. Not only will you become stronger practitioners through this program, but you will become strong leaders. www.vancityacro.com
  • We can't say it enough: working together truly takes us where we couldn't go alone. It is in our nature - our DNA - to exist in community, to work together. Many of us have never truly known "community" in the traditional sense since the advent of modern society. That is why practices that give us a taste of connection and community are so vital, now more than ever. AcroYoga has been one such profound and potent practice for us personally. We can give each other just the nudge we need to spread our wings and fly. Sometimes we can see each other's potential better than we can see our own. That's the beauty of camaraderie - we can lift each other up and grow stronger together, and independently, for it. We can't think of a richer way to spend our days than helping to facilitate such practices. It's so rewarding to see more people step into a space of empowerment and deepened connection. So much opens up and we find a quality of life we before didn't even know was possible. Are you interested to facilitate such experiences for others? Join us along the journey to learn what it takes to hold the space for such powerful revelations and transformations. www.vancityacro.com

  • This fun video shows what can be created in a space of trust and playfulness. Flow happens when the foundation of a partnership is built strongly with a dedication to learning the basics so well that you could do them in your sleep. One of our main focus points during the training will be creating flow together. We do this by really working hard on the basics to become very familiar with the shapes and transitions that would be in a flow like this one. Big thank you to Coral Crawford of the Island Circus Space for the countless hours spent playing and creating :)
  • Student from the inaugural VCA Teacher Training Tara Koenig shares a bit about her experience over our 10 days together. Tara shares the lessons she learned about vulnerability and courage, mental fortitude, and community. And we can agree, the world needs more cuddle puddles ;)
  • Physical disciplines are just that, the development of discipline. But they aren't just physical. As we make our bodies strong, so do we make our minds. This is not a choice - we lose our capacity or will to do this, and we fall behind. Thusly, the pace of our physical development is matched by the willpower, mental flexibility, & creative capacities we cultivate by engaging these practices that demand new levels of innovation, integrity, & introspection. Prepare to leave our time together a more well-rounded human, not just mover- and to see the impacts of this unfold for much time to come.
