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.

Those needing a financial break please be fast – the application deadline for our two scholarships takes place on April 7th!

Underneath this newsletter – which is mainly about the Family AcroYoga teacher training – you can find also find a list with all my upcoming workshops, events and a retreat!

I look forward to flying with you,


Esther Hertog – the Flying AcroYogi
