Level up, Prehab & Intro to Partner Acrobatics 2019
September 21, 2019 - September 28, 2019
Have you been interested in attending one of our Intensives or Teacher Trainings but you don’t have the experience yet?
This retreat focuses on building the basic strength required for acrobatics and handstands etc.. alongside one beginners acro class per day.
Much of the content will be similar to our “Prehab” program which focuses on the use of proper alignment and the principles of sports science to increase performance and decrease the risk of pain and/or injury.
The event is in collaboration with Cortijo La Casería del Mercado’s Cross Generational Movement & Harvest Retreat, so your family or spouse might wish to join you, as there will be many offerings for all ages and stamina levels.
More info on that here https://www.facebook.com/events/477640739436471/
There are many activities to take part in on the farm, planting/pruning, harvesting almonds and figs or helping process the harvest by making jams and nut butters. Also there are plenty of opportunities to help and learn in the kitchen.
This is the ideal place for families to have a nourishing holiday together, connect with each other & themselves through movement & nature & leave feeling fit, healthy and more mobile :)
Cortijo Caseria Del Mercado is a small organic farm high in the Alpujarras mountains of Andalucia, southern Spain.
In addition to the huge array of fruit and vegetables grown on site the farm has goats, horses and a peacock breeding sanctuary and the farm produces its own organic olive oil.
Not only is the cortijo a working farm it has been adapted as a retreat centre with traditional Spanish accommodation, a natural mineral water swimming pool and a yoga shala.
