Acroyoga Teacher Training Level 2 with Jason Nemer
30th August – 9th Sept 2018
AcroYoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community.
In this level 2 teacher training we want to take you to the next level of your teaching! We aim to give you new tools in your practice, your teaching and your ability to build community. In this intensive training, we will focus on the 3 pillars of AcroYoga and how these pillars can be mixed to support students in new ways. Yoga, Acrobatics and Healing arts are all infinite practices and we have the rest of our lives to find the perfect alchemy for different students and different situations.
We truly believe that this training will equip you with the skills and the courage to follow your passion as a teacher and bring unique offerings to your community.
You will be dedicated to a track during the training. About 25% of your time you will be with your group and your mentor finding new ways to create and deliver smart and individual content to the whole TT. We will dedicate the first few days to refining foundational principals & skills in the physical practice and re-defined teaching techniques. Each day we will present new challenges and have you all come up with content and ideas to meet the challenge.
6 teachers will teach a 3 hour class. 2 teachers from each track; yoga, acrobatics & healing.
class content: inversions and recovery
potential class plan: the yoga track warms up the class for 30min, the acro track does 1hr of inversion training, the yoga track does 30min of yoga to cool down, the healing track does thai fly to restore the wrist, shoulders and neck.
How is this level 2 different from ones in the past:
• The curriculum is built upon all the learning from the last level 2, with the most up to date tools and techniques.
• There focus is shifting to direct mentorship instead of training how to teach immersions
• The integration of different tracks to make unified offerings
• A two day festival to finish the party with graduates leading workshops
How is this level 2 like the ones in the past:
• It’s about bringing out more in teachers: bravery, honesty, truth, connection to their passions and skills
• You will leave the training with new skills and new ideas of what you want to grow in your practice
• Many teachers come out with more clarity as to what is their unique offering and how it can serve the global community

Jason Nemer is the co-founder of AcroYoga. He has been blessed to have many great teachers on his path. His family was always very supportive of his many passions. His younger brother brought him into gymnastics and from there he found acrobats playing at the gym and was hooked on both. During his teenage years he trained with some of the top Russian and Bulgarian acrobatic masters. Competing among the best acrobats in the world inspired his practice and taught him about humility. Currently he travels to teach, study and bring communities together. He believes this practice can be used as a tool to heal and connect people in a playful dance that can promote global peace.
