ABOUT US 

🌀 FER & FIFI (cia. ) 

🌀 LUIGI & FRANCESCA (Sicily Acro)

Driven by their passion for  practicing and sharing, Francesca and Luigi are a couple of instructors  who come from the sunny Sicily, an island in the south part of Italy.  They met 9 years ago and fell in love also thanks to acro-yoga. Luigi is  a Thai and Chinese massage (tuinà) therapist and thanks to his passion  for ancient arts he also became a taiji Chuan teacher with more than 10  years of experience and a Meditation teacher.  Francesca comes from the dance world and she is a psychologist who loves  the special way acroyoga make people connect and support each other  with an open mind attitude, work on personal strengh and bounderins,  experiment the “beeing in the present moment”. They are “Partner  Acrobatic” and “Acro Love” certfied teachers.

In their practice, they love to  create fluid and elegant flows but also enjoy the energy of speed and  tempo through whips, whip-pops, and Icarian games. They focus their  training and teaching on small details and love to break down  complicated moves with ease creating progressions to make sure success  even more complex tricks. They believe that practicing acro yoga is a  lucky opportunity to grow as human beings, to best express every one own  potential and to contribute creating a community of people focused on  sharing, supporting and enjoy life.  In their way of teaching, there is  always a bit of irony between them to remind that smiling is the spice  of life.

They often perform, teach  regular classes, organize workshops and retreats all over the world.  They are co-founders of the “AcroFusion Teacher Training”, an acro yoga  program to become a teacher. The event they like most is the “Sicily  Acro Convention”, a cool acrobatic convention they organize in the  summer, bringing together many national and international teachers and  participants in a marvellous Natural Reserve!

They strongly believe that  creating a joyfull atmosfere during the classes help people to bring out  their inner sun (the warm, playful, entusiastic part of them) and to be  part of a healthy community  where a beautiful laugh never fails!

🌀 PRI & JEN (prijenacro.com)

​When they started practicing  together, Pri and Jen directly felt a strong connection and a shared  vision focused on the investigation of new and fluid dynamic movements.  Both Acro Revolution certified teachers, they love all kinds of whipping  movements with their momentum that creates fluidity as well as the  feeling of freedom and the height Icarian Games offers them. They are  always looking for new combinations and new synergetic movements. They  are Whips, Whip-pops, and Icarians fanatics. Particularly concerned  about inclusion, in their teaching journey they aim to see each one of  their students flourish, providing skills and progressions to suit  everyone’s needs. Coming from two different countries and living  together in a third one, they speak several languages and their  workshops can be taught in English, Spanish, Italian, French and  Catalan.

Since she was a child, Jennifer has been in love  with movement. She's explored all types of activities such as dancing,  climbing, yoga, and so on, before settling her heart on acro. Pri has  more than 9 years of experience in acroyoga and partner acrobatics. Pri  is also co-founder of the Acro-Gravity project founded in 2017. Since  the beginning, he focused on fluidity and dynamic transitions in  L-basing partner acro.

All this time they have  organized intensive and advanced acroyoga and L-basing acrobatic  workshops, as well as taken part in retreats, festivals, and meetings.  They also are the promotor of the IAM International Acro Mini-Festival  and of All That Move, a movement driven event. They have been teaching,  among other, in the Dutch Acrobatic Festival, Acroyoga Summer Festival,  WAP Festival, FAB (Barcelona Acroyoga Festival) , BAC (Barcelona  Acrobatic Convention), SAFE festival Slovenia, Time-Out Festival  Germany, and many more.  Their latest workshops are part of a successful  tour that is taking them all over Europe, and even to the States to  share their passion and knowledge on fluid dynamic transitions.   ✨ Web: www.prijenacro.com ✨ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/prijenacro
