AcroYogaDance is a partner yoga practice which evolves into a moving meditation. AcroYogaDance is an art form, something wonderful not only the partners practicing it but also to those who witness it.
AcroYogaDance works globally to contribute within the yoga, dance and acrobatic communities by creating, performing and teaching unique flows and sequences. This offers a fun but challenging way of learning from beginners to the more advanced practitioner.
Eugene Vegan Butcher & Pip Elysium, Founders of AcroYogaDance love bringing beautiful and elegant transitions, making them simple so that with practise can evolve into stunning sequences which eventually will feel like a dance. Repetition is the mother of skill which will enable you to feel the movement and automatically respond to your partner with fluidity and grace.
The goal is that each sequence is fun, if it’s fun you’ll make new connections with yourself and others and you’ll do it more often, if you do it more often it can eventually become beautiful to perform. As it feels beautiful to perform it will also start to look beautiful and bring joy to those who see it as well as do it.
Pip is a trained ballerina who taught dance and Pilates to a high level before expanding to and falling in love with AcroYoga, which she applies 25 years of knowledge to her teaching, practice and performing. Pip wishes to pass on her expertise and experience not only to existing professional dancers, but also aspiring yogi’s and other movers who she believes would benefit from AcroYogaDance practice. AcroYoga has whole heartedly become her dance.
