AcroYoga Teacher Training

with AcroBhakti: Boris & Nina Snäll

Teaching is one of the best ways to deepen our own understanding and potential. To share our resources with others kindles our capacity. To become an acroyoga teacher is often a natural process starting with the love for the practice and the enthusiasm to share it with others.

 

 

Immerse yourself in the craft of teaching acroyoga

The AcroBhakti Teacher Training program is a fully packed toolbox designed for you who wish to immerse yourself in the craft of teaching acroyoga in a safe, fun and authentic way. 100 hours to expand both your embodiment repertoire and your teaching skills. The AcroBhakti Teacher Training gives a thorough foundation on how to lead acroyoga classes either as a solo teacher and or together with a co-teacher. And also tools and inspiration on how to lead longer workshops, retreats and festival. Beyond all this there is a great emphasis on finding your own personal intention on what acroyoga is for you and how you wish to share it with the world.

 

Find your alchemy

Focus is on both the embodiment & teaching of acroyoga related material. Most of all lots of lots of flying! Through theory & practice we approach the philosophy & principles of acroyoga pedagogy. We promote an autonomous and intention based teaching style aiming to bring out more of your inner teacher. To be an acroyoga teacher is not about being the greatest yogi, acrobat or bodyworker. It is about finding the alchemy between these expressions. Each teacher will have a unique way of composing this practice and the AcroBhakti Teacher Training is here to generously soak you in tools for body mind and soul. To teach with integrity you definitely need to develop various physical and pedagogical skills. And on a subtle plane let your sixth sense unfold for this interpersonal practice to reach its most synergic expression. This is an ongoing process that does not start or end with any teacher training program. Our intention is to offer an empowering boost to your path.

 

Reinforce the pedagogic, therapeutic & artistic

Team AcroBhakti has a creative approach to the trinity of acroyoga. With serious playfulness we interconnect yoga, acrobatics and massage respecting the different traditions in an undogmatic way. This will of course also reflect in this training and the focus will be on the whole panorama of pedagogic, therapeutic and artistic aspects and the interplay between these fields as they reinforce each other.

“Excel in the art of how to learn, how to share and how to practice.
From that space you will know how to teach.”

Diploma

Upon finished course you will receive a diploma. This diploma certifies that you have finished 100 hs of teacher training with team AcroBhakti in the practice of acroyoga. Our recommendation for enrolling in any kind of teacher training is that you base it on interest in the course itself and not aiming for a paper. There is a big illusion around being ’certified’ in different areas of yoga and acroyoga. Truth is that what is valid is your knowledge, integrity and quality as a teacher, this comes with dedicated practice and connection with your inner teacher. Other teachers can only give you a boost on your path. So please choose the course that is aligned with the focus you wish to take, wether it is for personal development, to start your teacher path or to get new inspiration as an experienced teacher.

Boris Snäll


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 perceive 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 Nina he runs the project AcroBhakti – moving yoga culture. They present the Nordic AcroYoga Festival in Sweden.
 

Nina Snäll


Nina moves naturally between traditional 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. 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.
