I loved the passion of the teachers and the variety of the sessions offered. The warm ups were always fun, grounding and energizing and there was ample opportunity to work with many different people on many different skills.
Thanks for organizing such an incredible event! I learned so much and met some amazing people.
Sunny Espace 215 studio did not give the impression of a full weekend stuck indoors, good quality of teachers who are attentive to participant questions and progression, good size of group for the space, good schedule structure, running reasonably on time, lots of smiles
Having a better idea of what each class is about ahead of time instead of the 30 seconds before the class in order to reflect on what we are most interested in and able to do, I felt rushed to pick without having a clear idea of the content. Coordination of content of classes - for example lots of Crocs in 4 different classes, intro to hand to hand given after progression to standing hand to hand (the skills learned in the 2nd would have been useful for the 1st class)
Thank you for the wonderful weekend!
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!
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.
