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
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.
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.
