With over 20 years of studying Yoga & 12 years teaching she feels blessed to be on this path, fulfilling her dream of being a dedicated Yoga teacher.
Acroyoga blends the spiritual wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics and the loving wisdom of Thai massage. These three elements form a unique practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness. From this place amazing physical shapes can be formed and emotional spiritual transformations can occur.
Acroyoga is a beautiful practice that allows us to explore how we communicate to others and how we can support and lift each other up. In this practice we build our own power & at the same time we help others to open their hearts and bodies, giving them an incredible flight.
There are two aspects of Acroyoga Solar Acrobatics ( Inversions & fitness ) & Lunar Therapeutics ( Therapeutic flying / Thai massage ). Yamuna is an accredited teacher in both of these aspects of Acroyoga and she specialises in Lunar Immersions.
Thai -Yoga massage
I have found a beautiful way to enrich Traditional Thai Yoga. Blending different healing arts together, such as Osteo-Thai, Dynamic Thai which directly affects the nervous system, encouraging Qi (Energy) to flow freely throughout the body and mind.
I cultivate visual intention, rhythmic pacing, receptivity and sensitivity, and adapt to each individual wave, generating a feeling of moving timelessly into space. The ultimate goal is to support the self-healing process of each individual letting them feel held and supported, creating an atmosphere where we can just be.
