Family AcroYoga Teachers

ZSUZSANNA BELENYESSY – BELGIUM, BRUSSELS

ZSUZSANNA BELENYESSY – BELGIUM, BRUSSELS

Human right lawyer during the day, Zsuzsanna teaches ashtanga yoga, acroyoga, and AY fit (acrobatic fitness) here and there, for free and for fun. Initially, she came to acroyoga, like most people,  for the coolness factor. Like others, she stayed for the substance. Learning partner acrobatics builds confidence, but also strengthens communications skills and trust in others. It is as much of a practice for the hearts and minds as it if for the physical body.  Practising yoga connects you with yourself and the universe. But acroyoga does something else, too. It also connects you to other people in a profound yet fun and entertaining way. It creates a community.

Ellen LeCompte – Belgium, Antwerpen

Ellen LeCompte – Belgium, Antwerpen

My name is Ellen and I’m a real adventurer with loads of energy. I started gymnastics when I was three. I discovered the kick of wave surfing in Bali, rock climbing in Canada and wandered around the globe during my travels for a few years before I rediscovered the fun and beauty of flying. After immersing myself in the practice of acro yoga and acrobatics, I felt the urge to pass on the acro spirit. And what’s a better audience than a bunch of happy kids and their parents, eager to fly and enjoy those amazing moments.
