It’s been 4 years since I took my first AcroYoga class. A long time ago & a lot of AcroYoga teaching since then, for probably 3 years (& virtually every Friday for 2 of them?!)
I haven’t been doing a lot of teaching in the last 10 months, mostly because of the intensive attention required to study the NeuroMyoFascial course that I’m busy with.
But this Summer I’ve co-taught a few sessions again & it’s been really interesting for me to view the use & safety of students bodies in AcroYoga through the lens of the information that I have now.

As anyone who has spent time diving deeper into a practice or study of something that they are passionate about will know, you can begin to feel exactly when knowledge is mastered – true, pure, fewer words, & extremely valuable.
We felt this the moment that we met & experienced the teaching of Lux (@Luxseattleacro) in 2015, but we’d already heard about it via the acro grapevine.
To be fair, you only have to watch his videos on You Tube & Acropedia, or spend some time following the trail of other teachers back to their original influencers… & it would lead you in some way to Lux.
So convincing him to come to Dubai for a second year in a row had us thrilled already. And working through this weekend proved, yet again, that a master in a subject can lead you, in a shorter time, to greater places in a faster or steadier progression.
But more importantly, that a master doesn’t see the need to rush in the first place… it’s firm foundations that will guarantee your quality & end result.
Happiness was this weekend for all of us who are inspired by this body flow of acrobatics made zen! The wisdom was profound. The moves were exquisite. The techniques were illuminating. The knowledge is ours to practice!
P.s – working on securing him for 2017 already…:)

Niko Douwes has left his mark on our Dubai community for a number of years, leading some fantastic and powerful workshops covering anything we need and didn’t realize that we need!
Thrilled to have had him back in November 2015, when he took us through Handstands, Foot to Hand, Hand to Hand, Washing Machines and Dance Acro.
Honestly – there isn’t a better way to exhaust yourself and feel a total body workout than to commit yourself to these sessions.
