That’s just the physical…
Training VIVA-style also means communicating clearly and honestly with your partners, creating and upholding a safe practice environment, and challenging yourself to simply be a better human. That’s a lot. This is big. Come try.
Each class and workshop has a humanities theme, a concept to be explored that helps us be better acroyogis above and beyond our physical skills. Inclusive languaging, consent and reciprocity are some examples of past skills woven into classes.
Communal eating spaces and a cozy venue, as well as Acrochats at lunch breaks help bring us closer.
Come experience nightly jams in public parks throughout the festival. There will also be a space for jamming on lunch breaks on the main festival days.
The Saturday Night VIVAFlow talent show and dance party is another way we play. Last year’s show was beyond incredible and everyone was involved!

VIVAcroyoga is more than a festival, it is an experience in human connection and play. You are part of it!
Everytime I come back to VIVA, I’m inspired in my practice and in my whole being. Montreal’s community vibe is incredibly awesome, lovely and contagious! People are warm, versatile, humble and welcoming! You can feel the true values of AcroYoga anchored in their practice and it is refreshing to play and share with them!
The festival is well organized, with quality workshops, and renowned teachers who will surely take your practice to the next level. I am overjoyed to be part of this magnificent team!
If you love Acroyoga festivals, VIVAcroyoga must be on your list!
VIVAcroyoga is a weeklong event with acroyogis from across Canada and around the World. This festival allows participants to enjoy a broad tapestry of Acroyoga styles and communities.
Creativity, expression, community and expertise are words that define, for us, the quality of workshops and teachers at the festival. In addition to outstanding teachers, the organizational team does an excellent job and the festival is centred around the values of communication, consent and safety in the practice. You can be a part of this event, as we did, by volunteering your skills.
As an international participant, you can meet people and create solid links with gifted practitioners, who are diverse and fun! You will be be welcomed kindly and inclusively into this unique Montreal community and festival.
VIVA is a really interesting festival environment. It seems small and intimate because of the studio where most festival activities take place. Yet it seems big and expansive because the beautiful city of Montreal is the backdrop with some classes and incredible jams happening in the park near the studio.
In terms of the classes, there are fun, challenging classes for all practice levels and it seems that the most amazing acroyoga teachers are all at this festival, teaching and taking classes. And I don’t mean most amazing in terms of skill set, I mean they are the best type of humans - kind, encouraging, supportive and badass. And the students are just as amazing!
In 2019, I had the pleasure of teaching a class to beginners and it was such a great teaching experience that I would like to teach again as often as they’ll let me....haha. Come to VIVAand see for yourself!
I’ll see you there.
VIVA is *the* annual acroyoga event/gathering in Montreal, drawing talent from all over the world and offering a variety of inspiring workshops to any skill level.
Community values are directed towards consent, inclusiveness and playfulness, helping to create an uplifting and heartwarming experience.
I love this event and am grateful to be a part of it!
