Acroyoga Comes to Diosa!
AcroYoga is a physical practice that blends the wisdom of partner yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. Through practice, individuals learn to use touch, movement, body awareness and flow to connect and communicate. Individuals may play the role of flyer, base, or spotter depending on their capabilities in strength and flexibility. Individuals may choose or be assigned to another in class to form a partnership based on their capabilities and compatibilities, or individuals can come and work with pre-determined partners. Either way, acroyoga will teach you how to engage physically with another person in a way that is comfortable and non-threatening as well as communicate both verbally and non-verbally to achieve a pose. Students wishing to participate in acroyoga should have some background in yoga or acrobatics and a level of comfort with Thai massage.
Matthew Moncreaff is a Black Belt Karate teacher, having won several medals in International Karate championships. He is also co-author of awareness survival stories and a certified yoga and Thai Yoga Massage practitioner and teacher. Matthew’s enthusiasm for yoga, and, in particular acroyoga, moves him to share this art and practice with others in a manner that is encouraging even for the beginner. His experience in karate, particularly teaching karate to children, make his teaching style and classes accessible to people of all ages and abilities.

KARMA YOGA - FRIDAYS AT 9AM!

Karma yoga is the yoga of selfless or altruistic service and this class dedicates itself to that end by providing a free morning yoga class for which you can make a voluntary donation to a local community charity. The charities will rotate from time to time and the first charity of choice is Voices Against Violence, an organization that is working on an individual and societal level to end sexual and domestic violence.
