And here is your team of teachers:
AFIA JOY ADU-SANYAH
Born and raised in Germany, current AcroYoga teacher, bodyworker, and future osteopath, Afia Joy also has a rich past as a linguistic anthropologist. She has traveled the world from Tibet to Bolivia, from Ghana to Uzbekistan, and from China to Argentina. Through it all, she encountered AcroYoga as a universal language.
Afia is studying osteopathy full-time since 2017.
"AcroYoga truly offers the magic of bringing people from all kinds of backgrounds together in the first moments of practicing."
Afia Joy Adu-Sanyah is an AcroYoga International certified Level II Teacher currently based near Frankfurt.
Kadri is an Estonian freelance conference interpreter who found AcroYoga to be the perfect addition to her language combination. AcroYoga is about communication, as is interpreting.
It is a place where one plus one is much more than two. If we are to combine two (or more) people each with their skills, strength, will and playfulness, we never know which new heights or depth we might end up reaching.
Having a background in contemporary dance, pilates and acrobatics, Kadri finds AcroYoga hard to beat in its diversity.
Kadri is an AcroYoga International certified Level I Teacher currently residing on the island of Hiiumaa (Estonia) with her husband Max and their two kids.
Max ́s engineering career started in the fields of electronics and telecommunication expanding into thermodynamics, gas-dynamics, and thermo-fluids-propulsion systems, diagnostic and measurement systems, aircraft design, and certification. He worked in Italy, Canada, Texas, and Germany. He moved to Estonia and decided to continue his personal research by diverting his attention from the outer to the inner world. Max was drawn to yoga because of the fundamental questions that existed from the beginning of time, his curiosity on the mechanism of how the mind frames the very question of time, existence, self, and consciousness.
Thanks to yoga he experienced the benefits and vitality of a healthy, strong, flexible, vibrant body which is necessary to sustain the actions of a disciplined mind.
Max is a 500h YTT certified yoga teacher.
