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.

“Vivacroyoga was the most fun and intensive weekend-long training I’ve done to date! It was more physically demanding than I could have imagined, and it brought the most fun and talented teachers and students together! I came as an outsider to Montreal and was quickly and warmly welcomed in. I flew in early to do this training before the Acroyoga Montreal Teacher Training, and I’m so grateful I did so. It set me up for success and made me feel included in Montreal in ways I wasn’t expecting. Whenever my travels allow, I’ll definitely be coming back as often as I can!” Travis Sigley

“Vivcroyoga was one of the most educational Acroyoga intensives I have ever attended. The classes were challenging and pushed me to that sweet spot between my strengths and just outside my comfort zone where I could flow — which lead to a lot of growth in just a few days. The best parts were the Acroyoga practitioners and teachers at the festival. I do not live in Canada full-time so it was a treat to meet so many dedicated practitioners who want to explore the creative possibilities of Acroyoga.” Jan Dizon

“We had a great experience teaching at Vivacroyoga! It was a melting pot of teachers, communities, and influences. The students were enthusiastic and supportive while working in their groups. There was great variety in the themes of the classes; we’ve never been to another event that has boasted so much creativity and diversity. What a wonderful way to enhance and encourage the larger acro community. We were honored to be a part of it – long live Vivacroyoga!” Diana Lam and Greg Clarke

Last year I volunteered at the Vivacroyoga Festival and got to practice, exchange and learn
with an amazing group of people all weekend long! It was fun to gather with the
Montreal AcroYoga folks and also get to meet the other AcroYoga communities coming from
different places around Canada and the world. Not only are the festival teachers solid and skilled, they are also strong pillars in their respective AcroYoga communities. Vivacroyoga is a safe, bilingual space to learn, make mistakes, play, laugh and connect with others. I’m looking forward to participating again in the future. Emilie Tremblay

I had a great time last year during my first Vivacroyoga adventure. Jill Campbell, the event organizer, did a phenomenal job of providing a star lineup of teachers at a convenient and lovely location in Montreal. I found the material covered was fun yet challenging for AcroYogis of all different backgrounds and skill levels.The three days I spent at the festival transformed my AcroYoga practice through the use of thoughtful movement, innovative poses, and inspiring games & activities. Granted the best part of it all was the sense of community and trust cultivated throughout the event. I was truly happy to have made so many likeminded friends. I thoroughly look forward to going back! Alan Rada
