Join the global movement of connection, peace, and playfulness at the Third Annual Divine Play AcroYoga Festival, October 12-14, 2012 at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. The festival is a sacred urban oasis, where participants co-create an ecstatic experience of community at the largest gathering of AcroYogis worldwide! Brand new beginners and experienced AcroYogis alike are invited to join us for this unique gathering dedicated to the fusion of ancient arts in modern times. This is where your inner child comes out to play!
Divine Play is the only convention of its kind, an annual international gathering of hundreds of yogis, acrobats, massage therapists, athletes, and wellness enthusiasts hosted by AcroYoga. Join co-founders Jenny Sauer-Klein & Jason Nemer, along with over 35 certified AcroYoga teachers and 15 internationally renowned master teachers to study the science of play. The waterfront historic venue at Fort Mason in San Francisco, boasts 30,000 square feet in which to learn, share, heal, transform and connect.
The festival includes three full days of intense practice, with celebratory evening events featuring music, performances, dancing, bodywork, kirtan, and open space to play and jam.
Classes will be offered for all levels from absolute beginner to advanced. The Friday day-long intensives are an opportunity to explore in-depth study with world-class teachers. The Main Festival on Saturday and Sunday offers over 60 classes with certified AcroYoga teachers from around the world and master teachers in the respective fields of yoga, acrobatics and healing arts.
The festival will offer a multitude of ways to support this year’s beneficiary partner Off the Mat, Into the World including classes with Kerri Kelly and Suzanne Sterling, which promote yoga service and activism.
