 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,
The Flying AcroYogi
