Mati & Paulina (CL)
AcroYoga & Acrobatic Teachers
Hello everyone! We are so excited for this event and getting to know all of you! We are an acro duo from Chile, we have been training and working together for about 3 years, and we love playing and sharing flyghts with many diferent people! We are very entusiastic and have lots of energy to share.
We love icarians, whipops and hand to hand and we search on every trick for that timing, hight and strength that makes it smooth and fluid. We usually train at the park and not always with spotters so we have created many progressions for trying out new tricks safely, and good comunication and trust wich are key for this trainig method.
Both of us teach in Chile regular clases, and workshops and we can’t wait for training and sharing with the european comunity of acroyoga! See you!

Trevor & Sytske
AcroYoga & Acrobatic Teachers
Trevor started his acrobatic journey as a ballroom dance instructor specializing in dance with lifts. Over time, he came to love acrobatics with or without dance involved. He trains and teaches many styles of partner acrobatics: Standing, L-basing, Icarian, group builds, dynamic, and static tricks. He loves to understand the deeper reasons certain movements work and to find those “aha!” moments both in his own practice as well as for his students.
Sytske trains and teaches both in her hometown Nijmegen, NL, and in international events. In her teaching she strives to create a safe space, encourages creativity, and likes to give personal attention. In acrobatics she loves to be able to truly work together, refining the details to create effortless and smooth movements. In her practice, she likes to explore Hand to Hand balances, fluid dance acrobatics and dynamic pops.
Sytske and Trevor met while attending Pitch Catch Circus in spring 2019, and they have been training together ever since. They currently teach together in Nijmegen, Netherlands. They both love to discover and work on the refinements and details that make a skill look effortless and calm. They enjoy breaking down complicated skills into accessible progressions to help their students reach new heights. They train most styles of partner acrobatics together and love teaching Hand to hand, Icarian, and Dance Acro.
Lennert and Yvonne (NL)
Yoga & AcroYoga Teachers
Lennert and Yvonne met in 2017 and they played some acroyoga the first time. They’re both quite new to the practice, but both got an active background in sports and yoga. Ever since that day, they’re highly addicted to the practice. You’ll find them often at festivals, conventions and workshops to improve their skills, connect with others, and get inspired for their own classes and workshops. In 2018 they both graduated from the AcroYoga Teacher Training (AYI). They have a huge love for flowy washing machines, whips, whippops and of course icarians.
Besides teaching at festivals and teaching regular classes and workshops, they’re the founders of Dutch AcroYoga Festival, which is held since 2019 in different Dutch cities, several times a year. For the local community, they created AcroYoga Moves, active mainly in The Hague and Leiden.
Recently they got their own AcroYoga temple, a beautiful space in the centre of Leiden where they will organise regular classes, jams, and workshops by both themselves and guest teachers as soon as it’s allowed again!

Food is included in your ticket price! We’re super happy that our lovely cook Eveline Delnooz will take care of our tummies! Eveline is an awesome cook who’s used to cook for big groups of AcroYogi’s and acrobats that do not only need a full plate of deliciousness, but also need it to be rich in nutritions. And that’s exactly what Eveline will take care of. She will be supported by a group of amazing Karma Yogi’s that will cut our veggies with love! Shout out to the cook and the Karma Yogi’s!
