AcroYoga For Beginners Trip To The Meadows Of Gulmarg
“But What Is AcroYoga?” 🙂
We are sure the crazy pictures in the gallery above already tell you what our new awesome trip is about. Acrobatic Yoga aka Acro Yoga is an incredible mix of Acrobatics and Yoga coupled with creative movements and some therapeutic massage. It is a quite a sight to watch AcroYogis practice this unique yoga artform and having fun with it in parks, on the beach and pretty much anywhere you feel free and comfortable.
Watch this incredible Acroyoga video at 11,000 feet, to see the real potential of this picture perfect art form, but don’t come expecting to learn those really advanced moves in the video on this trip, baby steps 🙂
It’s not a new phenomenon or a fad and has been around for a while now popular with people who love experimenting and exploring beyond the usual. Not only does it develop whole body strength and flexibility but most importantly, it teaches and enhances trust since Acroyoga is always done with a partner which is why sometimes it is also referred to as Partner Yoga. It brings in the element of communication with your partner to together achieve beautiful picture perfect poses that you will learn at our Acroyoga for Beginners Workshop.
You do not need to come with a partner for this trip just like all our other trips because there will be enough awesome kindred souls for you to pair up with for your practice to learn Acroyoga. But we think that it would be an awesome idea for friends or couples to do this together to enhance trust, communication and bonding.
“But how will I do those crazy acrobatic moves I see in the Pictures above ?” 🙂
Acroyoga is fun and playful and can be learnt by anyone with or without any previous yoga experience, this trip involves AcroYoga for Beginners but of course, people with prior experience in yoga or Acroyoga will love it and will have sufficient guidance to practise advanced moved too 🙂 If you are beginner, you will start with the basics and the course will move forward depending on individual abilities of course.
Also, you don’t need to worry about safety while learning and practising because there is always a third person designated to stand next to every set of two people that are practising (the “Base” and the “Flyer” in Acro Yoga Lingo) to help maintain safety and guide them with the pose, this person is called the “Spotter” in Acroyoga lingo.
Plus remember that we are going to be living and practising on the super gorgeous and unending lush green soft grassy meadows of Gulmarg in Kashmir, surrounded by mountains on all sides, while we learn this amazing yoga art form during this 6 day trip to paradise.
It just can’t get better than this !!
- There are no security or such issues in Gulmarg, you will be aware that it is a very popular hill station and a major tourist centre too. But don’t worry, our Acroyoga Immersion is a little away from the hustle and bustle of tourists in a secluded corner amidst the meadows, seen the picture gallery ? 🙂
- This trip is open to anyone since this is an Acroyoga for Beginners Trip and no previous Acroyoga or Yoga experience is required. Of course, you will enjoy it even more if you do have some prior experience.
- Don’t let your fears come in the way of this incredibly unique experience, it is an absolutely safe art form and you will be learning from the expert teachers from Denmark.
September 12th ( Tuesday) – September 17th ( Sunday)
**5 Nights and 6 Days**
PS: We are also organising India’s First Flow Arts Retreat to learn Poi, Hooping and Juggling at an unbelievably gorgeous spot near Rishikesh at the end of September, which may interest you too!
This is an AcroYoga for Beginners trip but people with prior experience are of course welcome and will have sufficient guidance to learn, practise and further their skills in super gorgeous environments. So anyone with or without any prior yoga or AcroYoga experience can come learn. Of course, some basic level of fitness will help since Acroyoga is a physically demanding activity just like any other vigorous form of fitness/dance/yoga.
But nothing else matches up to the fun and playfulness that Acroyoga brings especially in beautiful open environments 🙂
Our amazing teachers Rikke and Yacoup are coming all the way from Denmark and in fact met each other at an Acro Yoga Jam and then ended up getting married. They now travel and teach together, how awesome is that 🙂
Rikke has a background in jumping Trampoline for 9 years along with fitness pole dance, dancing and of course Acroyoga & Yoga. She has taught beginner workshops at various AcroYoga For Beginners events all over. She also has experience with Thai-Massage and Flying Therapeutic.
Yacoup is a professional Massage Therapist and has studied Physiotherapy. He has been teaching Acro Yoga and Thai massage in Austria, Denmark and Nepal for a couple of years now
And he will, of course, be offering massages to all or participants during this trip apart from teaching you those amazing AcroYoga moves with Rikke.
You are in good hands 🙂
Awesome people just like you, come for our trips from various cities and countries and we don’t like for it to be too crowded. So we cap the average number per group between 8 – 12 people with a healthy ratio!
These are once-in-a-lifetime experiences, not those touristy hordes being packed up in buses like sheep 🙂
We are expecting beautiful pleasant sunny weather with a little chill in the air in Gulmarg during our Acroyoga Immersion, but a little rain or drizzle here is not uncommon and will only add to the lushness of the meadows if at all, at which point we will just chill and enjoy the supremely gorgeous views!

The group will be split into pairs of 2 for practice and learning Acro Yoga, the pairing can stay the same or change depending on requirements of course.
The rest of the time is free for you to explore the lush green paradise that surrounds you.
- Day 3-5: We will have a mix of 2 Acroyoga / Flying Therapeutic / Yoga combined with practice sessions every day, one in the morning and another one late afternoon covering the various elements of AcroYoga going from easy to more advanced poses depending on individual capabilities of course. These will be immersive sessions where you will learn, play, have fun and feel the incredible energy that Acroyoga brings out amongst partners and the whole group.
There will also be various other playful and fun activities the rest of the time such as Learning how to cartwheel etc apart from other groups exercises that will enable trust, coordination, strength to open you up as a person and awaken your inner child.
Not just that, you will learn to do artistic acrobatic moves that most people see pictures of and just assume are impossible for them to do !!
Well they are not 🙂
