Partner Acrobatics Workshop: Icarians & Whip-Pops with Duo Furia

Saturday, 08 June 2024, 11:00 – 18:30
70€ full day (early bird until 01 June)
85€ normal bird / 50€ per session

Join us for a day of dynamic L-basing acrobatics with our Icarian and Whip-Pop workshop with Jordi & Catalina (@duofuria)! This acro duo from Chile comes to Berlin for the first time and will share with us their wealth of knowledge of these spectacular tricks. They are exciting to experience — a throw that completely breaks contact between the flyer and the base for a brief moment — but can also be scary and seem inaccessible. With their technical knowledge and through preliminary exercises and drills, Jordi & Catalina will guide you onto the right path to practice these tricks. In these workshops, we will build on foundational skills to give you the tools necessary for a safe and successful practice, find the right communication, and gain new confidence, courage and trust in your training.

No partner needed! We will practice in groups of 3-4 people.

About Duo Furia (@duofuria):

Jordi: I am Jordan, but everyone knows me as Jordi in the acroyoga community in Chile.  I started in 2014 with circus disciplines (acrobatic cloth, juggling and hand-to-hand). In 2017, a friend introduced me to acroyoga and I loved it! I like to practice whip-pops, Icarian, and standing acro. Personally, I really like meeting people and transmitting what I have learned throughout my years of practice. In the city of Santiago I dedicate myself to giving personalized classes and in small groups.

Catalina: I started doing acro in 2016, and I fell in love. In this short period time I have dabbled in the disciplines like handstand, yoga, acrobatics and partner acrobatics stuff to complement the practice of acro. Acro really change my life and my way to communicate with others with more listening and love. Even though now I teach acroyoga, I love to be a student and I can’t wait to live the greats moments that I know that acro can gives to my life.

We call to our duo, DUO FURIA. Why? We’ll tell you when we meet haha!

In Chile, we have a very beautiful community of acro, and we want this one to get bigger and bigger. We are a few, but we are the most amazing family. In 2020, we became certified acroyoga teachers with Acrolove TT1. We usually make workshops and participate in events in Chile and Argentina, and recently we crossed the ocean all the way to Europe.

We believe in the importance of teaching not only the technique, but also the recreational and collaborative spirit of acroyoga. In each class, we hope to create a space where we can share, learn and, above all, play.

Part 1 (11:00-14:00): Whip-Pops
