Jason Nemer is an incredible character, coach and trainer of acro-yoga and co-founder of AcroYoga.
Episode 185:  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. In 1991, after 4 years of dedicated practice at the age of 16, Jason represented the US at the World Championships of Sports Acrobatics in Beijing. In 1996, he performed acrobatics in the Opening Ceremonies at the Olympic games. Yoga came to him in his last semester of university in 2001.  After that first class there was no looking back. Connection to the breath and the lifestyle philosophy of yoga filled him with so much joy and new ideas of how to bring his past passions into a new form. 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.

Jason Nemer was an acrobat before he co-founded Acroyoga. In this episode Jason and I have a natural conversation about Trust, Connectivity, + the Small Powerful Communities. We talk about what happens when we leave the solitude of our own mats and open the gateways to new levels of human connection, healing, and communication.We talk about the evolutions in Acroyoga to acrofit, and what you can learn from your physical body and in your relationships... We also talk about the importance of developing skills in connection, compassion and communities on the path of Yoga.   What you’ll get out of tuning in:       Jason’s evolving dharma + what the next phase of his growth is about What trust has to do with yoga What happens when shy yoga come to acroyoga Doing yoga together vs. alone- sensitivity to each other. the relationship between cause and effect between each other. what are the common big “aha’s” of your students? The potential to being an amazing partner What you can learn from the roles in the smallest community   Link: Jason Nemer Interview (Full Episode) | The Tim Ferriss Show (Podcast) BIO: Jason wants to live in a world where strangers from different cultures can become friends through the joy of playfulness. Seeing people shift their beliefs about themselves, each other and the world is what motivates him. He is forever amazed at how a first AcroYoga flight can dissolve barriers of language and country, or how one improvement on a handstand can invigorate new possibilities of strength, balance, and progress.   About Acroyoga AcroYoga elevates the connection between you and others through movement, connection, and play. Acro in Greek  means high, or elevated. Yoga in Sanskrit commonly translates to notions of union, or joining. The experience of taking flight with AcroYoga instantly dissolves fears and invites practitioners to tap into new and infinite possibilities of communication, trust, and union. By combining acrobatics, yoga, and healing arts, the practice of AcroYoga has built a community of active teachers and practitioners all over the world. AcroYoga International was founded by Jason Nemer and Jenny Sauer-Klein in 2003. They were the first to codify the AcroYoga practice in 2006. Their work culminated into not only manuals, but also cultivated formalized educational paths that have promoted the highest levels of safety, expression, and straight up fun.
My guest on this episode of the podcast is Jason Nemer, co-founder of AcroYoga. Jason is an incredible character, who travels the world with next to nothing. He introduced me to my latest obsession -- AcroYoga. Along with Gymnastic Strength Training, I've been doing AcroYoga -- and I think about doing it all the time. AcroYoga is closer to partner acrobatics: Cirque du Soleil routine meets sensual-but-not-sexual contact. Even if you have no interest in doing AcroYoga yourself, there are many takeaways and recommendations in this episode that can benefit your life. And for those of you that are interested, we even do a couple of video demos, which can be found here. But don't feel like you need to step away from the purely audio experience of this podcast to follow along. Incidentally, the video was recorded at Creative Live, my favorite place to learn online. I've taken hundreds of courses there, but the one I'll recommend is Six Months to Six Figures by Peter Voogd. Enjoy the show!
