About Acro Gauntlet:
gaunt·let (noun): to go through an intimidating experience in order to reach a goal.
Let us guide you through the Acro Gauntlet Retreat- 4 days of hard work, sweat, and tears (of laughter). Over this weekend we will build strength, endurance, and technique. There will be variations and offerings for intermediate to advanced acro yogis. This intensive is for you if you are interested in perfecting technique, learning new variations, moving with more strength and integrity, and becoming a well rounded practitioner. Prerequisite skills to attend this retreat are as follows: Bird, Throne, Star, Cartwheel, Shoulderstand, Side Star, 30 Second Handstand at the wall.
Here is what people are saying about these three teachers from previous Acro Gauntlet Intensives:
“Encouraged by Katie, shown the way by Brandon and cheered on the whole time by Millissa – the Acro Gauntlet was a team effort to make all of the students feel like acro bosses. There was a strong sense of oneness and mutual understanding with the teachers that affected our group relationships and made us excel in our communication and problem solving. By the end I felt we were all one well oiled machine working together and the sense of personal success or failure was replaced with a feeling of gratification for everyones effort whether they were nailing it or learning something entirely new.”
“You so nicely balance each other out with your teaching techniques, you not only have so much love and respect for each other (which shows and is so important when teaching) but the trust and shared values that you bring to our community is awesome.”
“All three displayed very strong teaching skills. I can’t over emphasize all of the positives. An extremely well taught intensive!”
