ANGELIQUE WICKERSHEIMER

*Ready to fly

In this Workshop we combine the playful basics of AcroYoga and Thai massage technics with focus on the spine. It’s a partner practice, where we experience the joy of giving and receiving. While one partner stays grounded as the base, the other partner is relaxing upside down. For this workshop you don’t need any experiences or a partner. Come as you are and enjoy the pleasure of flying.

Partner Acrobatics or AcroYoga combined with various Yoga elements results in a fun form of  partner practice (though it’s not necessary to bring your own partner or to have experiences). Here, one person is the earthelement on the floor, the other one embodies the air element. If both partners are in balance with each other, it reinforces the connection between the two and at the same time builds trust and self-confidence. While „playing/flying“ with each other, you discover your inner child and get a glimpse of the incomparable feeling of flying, letting go and real happiness.

Most people who try AcroYoga for the first time, don’t always trust their own skills but are very surprised afterwards as to how they are willing to open up and give into this very special Yoga and Acrobatics practice.

In my classes, you learn all the elements and basics from the bottom to the top – in the true sense of the word. Here, we start with a Yoga warm-up, especially designed to move and prepare all joints and ligaments. Then, we fly, discover the skills of all participants and work with it in a playfull way. Finally we wrap up the class with a nice calm-down combined with Thai massage elements.

 

About Angelique:
Born and raised in Essen, in the north-west part of Germany, I had my first Yoga experience at the age of 16. When I was 5, I had started with ballet, followed by different urban dances and Hip Hop. I started teaching dance at the young age of 15 and took part in competitions during my school years all the way into my professional life.
After a few years of developing my body- movement skills, I was tired of trying, of “being better”, of winning or losing competitions.

So. I found Yoga. Or – Yoga found me.
