1, L base flows with Slava and Devon
We are coming all the way from Canada to get out of the cold and bring some fresh flow to the Bang Kok Acro Festival.
Want to try some fresh, fun, and challenging flows? We cater to each unique group that shows up to learn with us. Vancity is passionate about pushing the boundaries and possibilities in our practice and love to find the path less travelled. Let’s create an experience together and truly enjoy our practice. We are deeply invested in the process of exploration, having learned through experience that skill chasing leaves us feeling uninspired. This is also how we will share with the room, we have created material that hopefully you take and make it your own or do repeatedly to refine your transitions. Knowing that to move freely we need to have our foundations built with integrity, so we will begin with exercises that allow us to tap into connection with ourselves and our partners.
Come and build yourself up with us and explore the possibilities of this beautiful practice.
