Information om lärare bara på engelska !

Boris Acro

Boris is a certified Yoga and AcroYoga teacher. He believes that sense of humor is a tool for inner development. With background in Kung Fu, Circus, Gymnastics and Dance his classes are entertaining and with a fresh feeling. All what we percieve as challenges turns into games when we feel protected in a safe environment. Transformation happens in each moment and he honors that process in each class giving the right amount of challenge balanced with playfulness. Everyone is welcome to join the journey.

Together with his soulmate and co-teacher Nina he runs the project AcroBhakti that invites to serious playfulness and full presence with a warmhearted pedagogy.

Chetana Thornton

AcroYoga & Thai Massage (England/Finland)


Chetana is a bhakti yogi, devoted to inviting in the Yoga & healing therapeutic aspects of Acroyoga into embodying unity consciousness. Chetana currently teaches AcroYoga internationally; in winter from Amritapuri Amma's ashram. Chetana came to Acroyoga through exploring & teaching yoga & partneryoga, Yoga therapy, Thai Yoga massage & contact dance. Synthesizing these unifying practices together, grounded in the sadhana of ancient yogic wisdom, she offers a space through which we can mutually support one another, on our return to innocence through play.

Emily Baxter

AcroYoga & Slackline (Canada)


Emily was born in Canada but has been traveling the globe sharing movement and mind body practices for several years. From Yoga junkie to acro junkie, slacklining was a natural progression, in 2012 Emily joined the ‘YogaSlackers’ family, practising and teaching yoga poses and smooth slow flows on a very lightly tensioned line.

Her pursuit of the physical is driven by the deeper transformation of fears and self, that happen as one's practices go deeper. Emily’s passion for movement and body awareness coupled with her strong background in anatomy manifests in her teachings as clear, precise, thoughtful instruction.

Emily runs her own Yin Yoga as well as Partner Acrobatics Teacher Trainings. She continues to play, laugh, study, travel and teach wherever else she may find herself.

Jeppe Skovgaard

AcroYoga & Parkour (Denmark)


Jeppe loves to challenge the many dogmas about how to move and behave, be it in the yoga studio or the city landscape. Jeppe has been teaching parkour on all levels for the past 5 years and is besides that a dedicated slackline teacher and barefoot runner. In 2011 his world was turned upside down after meeting acroyoga in San Francisco and he is now fully energized around building, teaching and strengthening the community in Copenhagen, where he also lives and studies.

Lilli Breininger

AcroYoga (Germany/Denmark)


Lilli is a passionate AcroYogi and Vinyasa Yoga teacher, a former gymnast as well as practicing Thai massage therapist. After doing gymnastics in her childhood she discovered a whole new universe of being upside down. Her motivation is thriven by the joyful collaboration of people which comes with the practice of AcroYoga empowers people of all ages to support each other.

With a long history of bodywork, meditation and yoga behind her, she is into exploring the interconnectedness between heart, body and mind.

Nina Bella

Yoga & AcroYoga (Sweden)


Nina moves naturally between traditional satyanada yoga, modern free flowing vinyasa and explorative dance yoga. Her center of gravity is deeply rooted in the interconnectedness of AcroYoga merging yoga, acrobatics and healing arts into oneness. With creativity, movement and spirituality as her guiding stars she turns the world upside down and inside out. Even before she met her first yoga teacher the seed of yoga was planted. At an early age books, music and teachers of dance and theatre made a deep impact as they evoke the experience of our body, mind, soul connection in action. Yogic elements were brought into the space of art and improvisation. Deep relaxation, breath awareness and sun salutations were all present. And most of all a culture of acceptance, inclusivity and joy of movement.

Together with her soulmate and co-teacher Boris she runs the project AcroBhakti that invites to serious playfulness and full presence with a warmhearted pedagogy.

Oscar Johansson

Do I need to have experience to participate in this festival ?
NO. You can come as a completely beginner. There will be workshops for all levels. Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced. Everybody welcome.

Do I need to come with a partner to the workshops ?
NO. We work with all the people creating groups with different numbers. Very normal to work in groups of 3. If you have a friend which you really want to work with, well.. even better!

Do I need to pay for the food when I am in the festival ?
NO. The food is included in the price of the ticket. So you just come and enjoy. The food is vegetetarian and mostly with organic products (+80%). There will be abundant food because we know that AcroYogis consume more energy than the standard.

I am vegan. Do I need to be worried about my food for the festival ?
NO. The milk & egg products are not mixed with the food. They are presented as side dishes... so you can have your vegan meal :)

I don't speak Swedish... can I enjoy the festival anyway ?
YES. The workshops are going to be leaded by international teachers. The main language will be English. And because of geographical reasons, the second option will be a mix of Swedish/Norwegian/Danish/Finish...

Can I participate with physical limitations ?
Basically, the participation is entirely at your own responsibility. Advanced acrobatics workshops or an intense morning yoga class are only partial aspects of AcroYoga. Equally important are thai yoga massage, therapeutic flying, singing and gathering. These offers may be for the vast majority of people. No one is excluded because of his physical health and can still have a good time in the festival.
