Juri and Angélique
About your Teachers:
Juri is a playful acroyoga teacher, circus performer, musician and artist of many disciplines. Originally from Kyrgyzstan, based in Berlin. 10 years ago , after studying Architecture and Sculpture he discovered his passion for Acroyoga and Partner Acrobatics. Since then he's researching, teaching and performing a mixture of Acroyoga combined with the pleasure of the game from physical theater which he studied at physical theater schools in France (Phillippe Gaulier) and Italy (Matteo Destro).
Well known for his circus duo Barada Street and his playful Acroyoga classes he's travelling the world and sharing his passions.
„Every human has the inherent necessity to learn, imitate, connect and understand. As children we learn with fun and pleasure. Becoming an adult we lose this connection of playing and learning out of different reasons. Life gets more serious and our „inner critic“ is growing so that we get blocked in our body and mind to express and enjoy ourselves. In the game we're children again which trust in their impulses, enthusiasm and playfulness. I see and embrace this quality in practicing Acroyoga and looking forward to play with you in a trustful atmosphere."
Angélique has her backround in dancing. At a very young age she started with ballet and became a professional Dancer and Teacher in the north-west part of Germany. Originally from Essen she travelled through Europe and lived mostly in spain and India, where she became a Yoga Teacher. As she moved to Berlin 8 years ago she refined her Skills in Pilates and Yoga Therapy and is now well know for her work with professional Athletes, participating on the Olympics, next to clients like Adidas, the German Sportssupport or Nena (Singer). She found her passion in Acrobatics 7 Years ago and practices and teaches ever since.
"For me Acrobatics is the most joyful way of overcoming own mental limits and building trust to yourself and to another person.
The best about acro for me? You can´t do it alone, reactivating the inner child, "playing" in a group of (new) friends and simply enjoying the infinite possibilities of physics."
Juri and Angélique are teaching regular Classes in Berlin, Kreuzberg and "flying" around different Events, Workshops and Conventions in Europe.
