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.
Thank you for the wonderful weekend!
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.
VIVA is a really interesting festival environment. It feels small and intimate because of the studio where most of the festival activities take place. Still, it feels big and expansive because the beautiful city of Montreal is the backdrop with some classes and amazing jams happening in the park near the studio.
As far as classes go, there are fun and challenging classes for all levels and it seems like the most amazing acroyoga teachers are all at this festival, teaching and taking classes. And I don't mean the most amazing in terms of skills, I mean they're the best kind of humans – kind, encouraging, supportive and badass. And the students are just as amazing!
In 2019 I had the pleasure of teaching a beginners class and it was such a great teaching experience that I would love to teach again as often as they allow me....haha. Come to VIVA and see for yourself! I will see you there.
Every time I come back from VIVA, I am inspired not only in my practice but also in my whole being. The Montreal community vibe is so hot, beautiful and contagious! The 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!
A well-organized festival, with quality workshops, renowned teachers, which will certainly take your practice further. I am blessed to be part of this wonderful team!
If you love Acroyoga festivals, VIVAcroyoga should be on your list!
VIVAcroyoga is a full week meeting with acroyogis from across Canada and around the world. This event allows you to have a beautiful landscape of the different communities and styles of AcroYoga.
Creativity, expression, conviviality and expertise are the words that define for us the quality of the workshops and the speakers in the festival. In addition to the quality of the speakers, the organization team is doing a great job focusing on the values of communication, consent and safety in practice. You can also join the team and bring your energy because they provide some volunteer places.
When you come from abroad you can therefore meet and create great links with great practitioners with a diversified and fun practice. It is with inclusion, affection and sensitivity that you will be welcomed into the festival and the community in Montreal.
VIVA is Montreal's annual acroyoga event, attracting talent from all over the world and offering a variety of inspiring workshops at all skill levels.
Community values are geared towards consent, inclusion and play, which helps create an uplifting and comforting experience.
I love this event and I'm grateful to be 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.
