Family AcroYoga Teacher Training | 29 May-3 June | BRUSSELS

Dear AcroYogi/Yogi and life enthusiast, 
Last June 18th when I watched the 1st family AcroYoga workshop I suddenly had tears in my eyes. I saw our Family AcroYoga teacher training students giving wonderful workshops to large groups of parents & children. The teaching seemed so sweet, well balanced – creative and fun! I was so moved because for me this was the result of years of developing, collaborating, working hard and never giving up. Now there are 20 teachers around the world teaching Family AcroYoga.
At the end of May 2018, Tatjana, Mireia and I will offer our second Family AcroYoga teacher training. We would love to invite you to join our amazing growing Family AcroYoga teacher team.
We look forward to flying with you!
Esther Hertog

The extensive 6-day Family AcroYoga teacher-training program combines pedagogical knowledge with practical training methods. The training develops the art of teaching Family AcroYoga in a safe and caring environment. We will work on detail design workshops to enhance practical Family AcroYoga know-how, build body & mind awareness & cultivate positive thinking, trust & community minded thinking.
We will study and put into practice pedagogical skills such as how to ‘manage’ large groups of adults & children, how to establish positive ways of communication, how to practice elaborate physical exercises with the age groups, and how to make workshops and classes meaningful, beneficial and fun for children and parents.
AYFamily Series1

 

Who is the training designed for?

In our ideal world applicants should be advanced AcroYoga practitioners: As experienced AcroYoga teachers ourselves, we found that teaching Family AcroYoga is many levels more difficult than giving regular adult AcroYoga lessons:
A Family AcroYoga teacher must be capable of simultaneously working with both children and adults, Knowledgeable enough to spontaneously switch lesson content, constantly Attentive of growing children’s physical & mental needs, and Experienced enough to feel which AcroYoga technique is optimal for individual participants at any given moment.

Join the Community!

We are three teachers with three different styles and this diversity has been very valuable to us, realizing the more ways and styles we learn the richer our vocabulary will be. Our aim is not to create a style to be fixed and copied but to collect as many different perspectives as possible. The more colours we have in our palette, the more we will be able to understand the unique colour that every parent and child bring along with them. This training represents a starting point, a dialog with all educators and AcroYoga practitioners. 

In 2017 the community grew with 17 new teachers. Our aim is too unite all those teachers that are already working in Family AcroYoga and all of those who want get started with it and work together, explore, grow and learn from each other and from the famílies.

Family Acroyoga Teacher Training Brussels | June 13-18

Dear Friends & Students & AcroYogi’s

For some strange reason I feel slightly uneasy putting this out there, but here goes anyway!

I am so PROUD – because after years of trying in so many different ways, and years of gaining experience and commitment to learning how to move forward – I can finally announce that the Family AcroYoga Teacher training takes place this coming June!

Our amazing team – dear friends Mireia and Tatjana and I worked incredibly hard over the last months. We’ve written the Family AcroYoga teachers manual, made a detailed planning for the training, have a logo (designed by Herman van Boeijen – Thank you!) and have made photos and video of all the family Acroyoga poses! By now we have many registrations (NB – a few places are still available). We are now ready for this 6 days teacher training!

I guess we should be proud, what do you think?

If you LOVE kids & AcroYoga and want to make teaching this your profession contact us.

20th May 2016

Dear one,

We haven’t been in touch for so long.. Every month I tell myself NOW I am going to write my newsletter but then life/ filmmaking / PaasCroYoga takes over.. and just like that more than six months have passed! Does that happen as well to you?

In this newsletter you can watch my new and FREE yoga video for my Sister(s), which as well brothers can watch and do. I made it for my twin sister that suffers, like me, from lower back ache. I do this sequence every morning and it helps me a lot and I hope it will help my sister(s) as well. We filmed this video in the winter in France in the rain.. and it includes a special guest and funny comments just before it really started storming..
* Find the Video below in the newsletter.

You can read as well in this newsletter about all the upcoming workshops, classes and festivals where I will be teaching. The first workshop coming up is THIS sunday in Den Haag, an intermediate Acroyoga workshop with Inez Almeida and I.

Since my last newsletter really a lot has happened:

First of all I organized and taught at PaasCroYoga 2016 – it was a blast, I have flown around the world to teach Acroyoga & AcroYoga family workshops like family acro convention in Israel 2015, Divine play 2015, many workshops in Europe and I just came back from the Dutch Acrobatics festival! Last but not least I finally UPDATED MY WEBSITE! I am especially pleased with that since that was on my list for several years.. Click HERE or on the banner to admire my newly updated website.

And there is much more is in the planning!

Looking forward to flying with you,

Esther Hertog,

Thank you for Flying with me, 

Esther the Flying AcroYogi

[:en]Oh darling, what if you FLY? | Sept 2015 | flying with the FlyingAcroYogi[:]

Did you ever dream of FLYING but always thought you couldn’t?
Do you recognize a feeling of fear or shyness that stops you from trying something, even when you actually really want to learn it?*

Failing or falling scares me. Sometimes when I don’t immediately succeed in something I feel like a failure, and this even makes me feel that EVERYTHING I do is a failure! Falling and failing can bring up very raw emotions – yet I believe that we grow the most by trying again even when we fail the first time!

Here are Yoga wisdoms that time and time again help me to pick up my miserable ‘failed’ self:

Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is about what you learn on the way down to your toes. I believe that being able to do a great acrobatic move or making a pretzel of your body doesn’t necessarily make you a better person or a better Yogi! For me it is important that I enjoy the process of learning and that I find stillness in my practice whether I manage to do a pose or not. Patience and tolerance are the keywords!
You don’t need to be great to try, but you have to try to be great! If you never try you will never know whether you can do something or not. From my experience as an AcroYoga teacher I notice that people often underestimate their abilities. People have no idea how strong and able they are until they try!
I believe everyone can fly: it is a matter of trying, sometimes failing, or falling, learning from the experience and trying again. Most important is to keep breathing and smiling during the process!

In my workshops you’ll be given clear guidelines and fun preparations for basing, flying and spotting. Especially the role of the spotter will be emphasized so everyone feels safe to explore AcroYoga even when things go out of balance.

Do not worry about falling! TRY flying! If you want learn how to fly come to one of the THREE beginners AcroYoga workshops:

The first one is THIS Sunday in Thrive Yoga in Amsterdam!

For more detailed info about other beginners & intermediate workshops, the Parents & Kids AcroYoga workshop, AcroYoga Festivals, Online workshops and Acroyoga manuals, please read the below info.

[:en][ June 2015] Developing Serious Playfulness[:]

 Developing Serious Playfulness 
June 2015

Upcoming summer workshops FlyingAcroYogi

Dear Yogis and AcroYogis,

I am feeling really excited! As you might know, beside teaching acroyoga workshops and classes for ‘grown-ups’ I have been as well, since 2011, developing and teaching AcroYoga workshops for Parents & Kids – age 7-11 years old! In the AcroYoga workshops for Parents & Kids we stretch, fly, meditate, massage and most of all play together, and as a result we develop serious playfulness, trust and bonding.
 I see children as my teachers. When a kid doesn’t want to do something  he/she wont do it! The intention of the workshops is that everyone enjoys;  if the kids are happy and smiling it’s a successful workshop and whether  they do the exercises successfully or not is secondary. Children are very  true to themselves and to their feelings at that moment. I see that as yogic  quality and it means also for me to be spontaneous and in the moment. I  wished I could be as honest as a child to myself!

During all those workshops I often had much younger kids joining in as well, once even a 3,5 year old toddler joined the workshop for 7-11 year old! So I knew something needed to be done for the younger kids and their parents as well. I have developed a new P&K AY series for the younger kids (age 4 -6) and this saturday in rasalila and Sunday in Yoga School Noord I’ll teach the first workshops (and as well two for the bigger kids). Now I am in the midst of preparing a workshop for even younger kids! Last week I had my first tryout workshop for 2,5 – 4 year olds and their parents, these workshops will start in the fall. So all the papa’s, mama’s, aunties and uncles, grandma’s and grandpa’s be prepared to develop together with your kid(s) some serious Playfulness!

Last but not least I want to tell you a little secret which excites me enormousely: together with the team of AcroYoga.org I’m are developing a new branch/curriculum in AcroYoga; AcroYoga Family, among others we will create a teacher training and a manual specialy designed for families. We still have a long way to go but in a year of two we will be able to spread the love of Parents & Kids AcroYoga even more!

Looking forward to flying with you,

Esther Hertog,

[:nl]Deadlines & Handstand Practice | April 2015[:]

banner Flying AcroYogi _KLDear AcroYogis and yogis,

I must confess something.. You all know that I am a Yoga teacher and I am supposed to be relaxed and knowing everything about finding balance in life… But I am actually not so good in being relaxed nor managing finding a balance between my two full-time careers (AcroYoga teacher and filmmaker).. I am at the moment actually quite stressed! It seems that lately I am living from one work deadline to the other deadline.  Now I found a new golden formula to get my work done AND practice my handstands, it really works for me and its fun!

Esther’s deadline Handstand Practice in 5 steps:
1) Sit down comfortably
2) Close your email and facebook
3) set a timer to 30 minutes (preferable one with a nice ringtone)
4) Try to focus on work without distractions till the timer goes off
5) BREAKTIME: do 3 to 5 handstands (against wall or free), eat/ drink and 5 minutes internet distraction allowed.
Then you start again for the next round!

In between the deadlines I have been working on my website, its not totally done yet (still need to translate the pages).. BUT you can already admire the NEW look of my website: www.flyingacroyogi.com

Now it is my time to take again a handstand break!

Looking forward to flying with you,

Esther Hertog, The Flying AcroYogi

January 2015 - Eight SIMPLE lessons from the jungle | Upcoming AcroYoga workshops

Dear big & small friends and AcroYoga lovers,If you ever wondered how baking cookies, and seven other simple tips, can help the world, then this newsletter is for you!
Scroll further down for the upcoming AcroYoga workshops: 2 Parents & Kids AcroYoga series (of which the first one starts THIS saturday at rasalila), valentine AcroYoga workshop to celebrate LOVE, a AcroYoga workshop in Antwerpen and a short PAASCROYOGA update. Also below more about how you can order the new AcroYoga manual and last but not least a delicious palm-oil-free cookie recipe!Jungle lessons:
A few months ago we walked in a piece of beautiful rich jungle (see picture above), sweating and sliding up and down the muddy hills with just a camera and a bottle of water. We saw with our own eyes the abundance of the world. Every step we made we found so many different plants and animals and we swam in a beautiful clear waterfall. We learned to take nothing but memories, leave nothing but our footprints. Being in the jungle was simply an amazing experience captured with our hearts and cameras.
Unfortunately memories and pictures is all that is left of this piece of jungle… THIS JUNGLE DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE, in the background we heard already the chainsaws…
Now it looks like this:

Burned down for a Palm-oil plantation…I often hear people say “there are so many problems in the world, I can’t do anything about it, I don’t know even where to start…”.
What I learned from the jungle of Borneo is that even the smallest step towards consciousness is a step forward. YOU can make a big difference! Below Eight simple tips from the jungle. As I am a lover for sweets,  especially nr. 8 is very important:
1) Buy less
2) Buy used
3) Buy local
4) Share
5) Repair what is broken
6) Recycle what cannot be repaired
7) View the world, once in a while, from a different perspective (upside down like the orangutans, for instance)
8) Bake your own cookies!*
* When shopping for sustainable cookies I was shocked to find out that even in the Bio shops pretty much ail cookies contain Palm-Oil… even for organic and ‘sustainable’ Palm oil jungle has been cut down.. Hence its better for the jungles and the lungs of this world to bake your own cookies! Find my Palm-Oil-free recipe at the end of the newsletter.Happy to back again, hope to see you in one of the upcoming workshops or festivals, for a big hug or for cookie eating!
Namaste, Shalom, Salaam, Salamat Pagi

INFO


• Delicious palm-oil – free cookie recipe
Ingredients
·       ½ cup coconut oil (au bain-marie to make it liquid)
·       1 cup Masarang palm sugar
(*read below where you can buy it)
·       ¼ cup almond milk (soya milk will do too)
·       1 tablespoon vanilla extract or  1 tbs vanilla sugar
·       2 cups flour
·       1 teaspoon baking soda
·       1 teaspoon baking powder
·       ½ teaspoon sea salt
·       1 cup chocolate chips (+/- 100 gr.)

Instructions:
1.    Pre-heat oven to 180 C.
2.    Mix thoroughly the coconut oil & Masarang palm sugar, then add the almond milk & vanilla. The mixture may be really “liquidy”.
3.    In a separate bowl mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
4.    Combine the wet & dry ingredients (it WILL BE crumbly – this is OK), then fold in the chocolate chips.
5.    Roll into Tablespoon sized balls & place them on an un-greased baking paper, then flatten them out a bit with your palm. The dough may be a little crumbly, but just smoosh it together and it will work fine!
6.     Bake for 7-10 minutes:
7.     Enjoy!
And the great Apes I met in the jungles are grateful too, look at them playing in the jungle:

* About Masarang Palm Sugar:

Masarang Palm-sugar (link) is made from the Indonesian Arenga Palm (not to be confused with the Oil Palm which is a very different plant!). Not only is the taste is unique, the sugar is as well environmentally friendly produced, and it is a healthy sugar. By buying this sugar you support Masarang projects like animal rescue centers and reforestation projects.
In the Netherlands you can buy Masarang sugar at Jumbo, Eko plaza, Sem Bio shops and other organic shops.

June 2014 | about [June 2014] Shampoo & Yoga philosophy | FlyingAcroYogi's attempt to save the world

3cfaf6c7-7ce6-446e-a4bf-d15d58e1a0dd
Dear AcroYogis and Yogis to be, You might be asking yourself what on earth the connection could be between shampoo and Yoga philosophy… For some it might be far-fetched since the goal of Yoga is to ‘go inside’ and to reach enlightenment (or just to stretch) and shampoo is sold to make you look beautiful from the outside with clean gorgeous hair.
In this newsletter you can read about my take on trying to be a ‘good yogi’ and my own humble attempt to save the world + I share with you FREE & super easy homemade shampoo & conditioner recipe.
• Scroll further down for the FlyingAcroYogis’ summer agenda full with AcroYoga workshops.


About Shampoo & Yoga philosophy
One of the side-effects yoga had on me is that I have become more conscious… Not only more aware on how I feel in my body and mind but conscious how my own actions influence my environment (actions like; wanting, buying, eating or sharing opinions).

Having knowledge and being aware is not necessary easy. It’s really much more easy to live in ignorance and be influenced by advertisements made by smart marketers… Marketers try to influence the Ego of the person, they make you think that you need things, also things like shampoo: thousands of different kinds of shampoo made to make every kind of hair beautiful, and not to forget the conditioner that makes your hair shine without fluff. In short I could say that advertisements try to make us insecure en therefore needy and indifferent.

The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali starts with “yoga chitta vritti nirodha“, which could be translated as: “Yoga is the silencing of the modifications of the mind”. That background voice in everyone’s head that is thinking, distracting, opinionated, judgmental and also makes us insecure are the Vritti, which in the practice of yoga we try to quieten. When we live in a world bombarded with advertisements its sometimes hard to shut off the Vrittis, so we buy stuff we think is good for us.

Yoga philosophy is quite the opposite of shampoo advertisements. The yoga philosophy guides us to be moderate in all we do (Brachmacharya) and live in non-violence (Ahimsa). With my conscious and knowledge growing, washing my hair with shampoo made out of Palm-oil and fragrance, became for me a real problem: How could I continue killing Orangutans, polluting the seas with chemicals and empty plastic shampoo bottles, support sexist gender discrimination in advertisement and more! (click on the words for explanations).

This knowledge and awareness made me feel uncomfortable every time I took a shower; How on earth could I manage to be ‘a good yogi’ with clean hair…? A quote from Mahatma Ghandi – “Be the change you wan to see in the world” – made me decide to take action. After a long period trying out expensive Palm-oil-fragrance-chemical-free-eco-friendly shampoos (which, btw didn’t solve the plastic bottle problem) I think I found an answer for yogic wisdom with clean and beautiful hair:
For the last few months I have made my own ‘shampoo & conditioner’ from Baking soda (zuiveringszout) and (organic) apple vinegar. Both are natural and not harmful for the environment AND it actually made my hair look and feel even better than regular shampoo (recipe below) !

And now I’m going to make some shampoo and conditioner to take with me for a whole weekend of yoga at Yoga Festival Terschelling.

Namaste,
Esther Hertog,
The Flying AcroYogi

The shampoo recipe:
Take a (used) bottle and fill it with one-quarter baking Soda and three-quarter of (filtered) water, shake well! Then squirt it over your wet hair and massage into scalp and hair (this ‘shampoo’ doesn’t foam). Rinse as normal.

The Conditioner recipe:
Take a (used) bottle and fill it with one-quarter apple vinegar and three-quarter of (filtered) water, you can add a few drops of essential oil for the smell, shake well. Squirt the mix over your wet hair and massage into scalp and hair, wait 2-3 minutes. Rinse as normal.

[Jan 2014] Newsletter about Contemplations in France | Upcoming AcroYoga workshops & PAASCROYOGA

Dear AcroYogis and AcroYogis to be,

From Northern France I am writing you, where I am having a very-much-needed-break, but by the time I send this newsletter I’ll be back in Amsterdam overflowed with wifi and mobile phones (or should I say infested with..?) and ready again for Yoga and Acrobatics! Below you can read more about my rather amusing efforts to understand Yoga philosophy while drinking French wine and barely doing Yoga… Scroll further down for the workshops for January – February + exciting news about PaasCroYoga + NEW Elements of AcroYoga for sale! Contemplations about a non-existing yoga discipline on vacation in France” Here in Northern France I am making space for yoga philosophy to intermingle with French wine and the smell of the woods. Here all I do pretty much every day is sleep until noon, eat good food (a lot!), read books, make long walks in the forest and finish the day with more food and French wine. Most days are tranquilly passing by without doing my daily yoga practice… In our ‘modern’ society you could consider this as being lazy or very lazy... I would definitely feel guilty if I wasted a whole day doing nothing ‘productive’ back home where I am working on two different careers and often barely managing to keep breathing between all the obligations, workshops and my own imposed deadlines. Strangely enough I normally do manage at home to roll out my yoga mat as daily practice. Here in France while taking a break the yogic philosophy gets interesting; Tapa’s (discipline), Ahimsa (non-violence towards others and yourself) and Brachmacharya (moderation in all you do) get a new significance and also raise many questions. Often a thought lingers upon me that as a ‘good & disciplined’ yoga teacher I should practice Tapa’s; which could be translated to doing everyday yoga Asana’s (postures). Here in France I contemplate whether it really would make me a better yogi if I were to lead the example yoga teacher life and do at least 30 different sweat and flexibility producing postures everyday. I also wonder what my students would think of me if they saw how I on nearly a daily basis drink coffee and eat breakfast barely awake at 12:25PM (needless to say that my yoga mat is still rolled up at that time of the day)… At the same time my knees, my right wrist and my lower back have been reminding me for a long while to bring more Ahimsa to my life; does that mean I should take a total break from my yoga mat and give my body a real rest and finally heal? Maybe I should interpret Brachmacharya as working with moderation and therefore making space to relax (or is it the other way around..)? I also worry whether Brachmacharya really means to live moderately hence not enjoying French wine and cheese… Whenever I have to crawl under the barbed wire to get to the next green pasture or when I climb over a fallen down tree I am grateful for all the Yoga Asana’s I have done before going on vacation. Perhaps the answer to my contemplations on Yoga discipline is in the Sanskrit word for Yoga: Yoga can be translated (among other things) as union – Union of Body, Mind and Spirit (connect the physical, mental and energy bodies). Possibly Yoga is also crawling under fences and over trees in France? I learned at my Yoga Teacher training that according to the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, the ultimate aim of Yoga is to reach Kaivalya (emancipation or ultimate freedom). Here I am at a place where I can download my thoughts while being just half awake at noon, I too can stare blankly into the woods to contemplate life, daydream stories I see passing by in the clouds above me or watch with awe how a little worm slowly finds its way across leaf. All this doing nothing in France is without a tight schedule to hurry for and most importantly without feeling pressured that I have to do something. Is this the union between my body (sleeping eating walking), my mind (totally blank) and the spirit (the nature around me) that Patanjali was aiming for? Bonjour and a salut to 2014! Afterthought: Maybe after working so incredibly hard in 2013, in which I taught: • 10 AcroYoga workshops abroad; anywhere between Bethlehem, Belgium and Moscow. • 22 workshops in the Netherlands • Many yoga and AcroYoga classes (• AND attended over 20 times the screening of my documentary, of which 8 abroad + making 5 promotional films + developing and producing another 5 documentaries). Being lazy in France feels like a long deserved Savassanah (corps pose)

Looking forward to Flying with you!

[Sept - Nov 2013] newsletter

Dear AcroYogis and AcroYogis to be, There are a lot’s of workshops coming this fall!

AcroYoga might seem challenging for some of you – yet I believe that EVERYONE, Young or Old, can learn to FLY! In AcroYoga we ‘fly’ in a group: The BASE is grounded and holds up and stretches/twists/massages the FLYER and there is always a SPOTTER to make sure everything happens safely. Together we work on building trust, strength, flexibility and most importantly we learn to play (again)! My mantra is “All you need to be able to fly is BREATH, a few good tips, spotters and practice practice practice practice“.

Looking forward to flying with you,

Esther Hertog, The Flying AcroYogi Website: www.flyingacroyogi.com Facebook: Esther Hertog – FlyingAcroYogi AcroYoga website: www.acroyoga.org

Dear Young and even Younger Yogi’s and Acroyogi’s:

My life continues to be full of adventure and surprises! During the last 6 weeks I have crisscrossed through the Holy land teaching AcroYoga, practicing acrobatics at the Israel Acrobatics Convention, and working on a brand new film production. One experience in particular touched my heart: An AcroYoga workshop I taught in Bethlehem. The workshop was full – including people of many nationalities: Palestinians, Dutch, English, Swedish and even 5 Israeli’s! We found out that we all had a lot in common: colorful nail polish, a big love of desserts (the sweet kind), some common back & knee issues. I saw beautiful smiles and a love of play, and all were willing to trust each other in the partner AcroYoga poses. To those of you that were in Bethlehem, and those of you that will come to the upcoming workshops: Thank you for your trust. (PS . For all the pictures and updates from the Holy land travels please check out my facebook page).

Now I am ready to share the energy I received during my adventures with ALL of you!:

• Yoga classes | Yoga Garden | Amsterdam | 19 & 26 June

• Four AcroYoga workshops | Blauwe Parel | Tilburg | 22-23 June

• Dutch Yoga Festival Terschelling | 28-39 June

• Ouder & Kind AcroYoga workshop | rasa-lila | Amsterdam | Saturday 6th July

• AcroYoga workshops at the sea! | Domburg, Zeeland | 10th August

Looking forward to flying with you, Esther Hertog, The Flying AcroYogi

In YogaFlow classes each posture is linked to the next via the breath. Flowing from one movement to the next heat is created as well as suppleness in the mind and body. This class is for all ages and people with some experience in yoga that like to be challenged in their practice.

Thai Massage is often referred to as ‘yoga for lazy people’. The receiver makes the movement, without making the effort. Combining the stretches with deep-pressure massage is a powerful way to relax, recharge and reconnect to your body. The massage is performed fully dressed on a futon on the ground. * 7th Jan – Natacha d’Ansembourg gives an Introduction workshop in Momo.

After enjoying a sample of the many elements of the practice you will have first hand experience of what makes up AcroYoga. No yoga experience required, no partner needed. Come support and be supported.
