Every full moon has a different name, this was the way Native American Tribes would track the seasons. August full moon is known as the Sturgeon Full Moon. This is because Native Americans knew that the giant sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught during this full Moon. The surgeon is an ancient fish, people will call live fossil

The word “sturgeon” means “the stirrer,” which is what this giant fish does when it is looking for food; it stirs up the mud and silt on river and lake bottoms.

According to some tarot readers, August’s Full Moon invites us to let our imagination stir with eccentric ideas and visions that will contribute to the whole and betterment of our society. 

Before even knowing this I have decided to change my fundraiser classes to an Acroyoga Jam.

Every full moon since August 2018 I have been hosting a yoga class to fundraise a nonprofit organization Cayman’s Act of Random Kindness in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands

I hosted these classes around the full moon dates and during the classes, we worked with the full moon energy. We reflect about what do we need to release and let go and we practices a slow yoga secuense as the Moon Salutations or Chandra Namaskar in sanskrit

August full moon in 2019 is 1 year I have been hosting these classes!

I am so happy that I want to celebrate the anniversary involving more people in an acro-yoga practice

Acroyoga is all about letting go and trust.

Letting go of the fears, the insecurities. Stop saying to your self “I can’t”, “I am not strong enough” or any other excuses that might show up.

This full moon is here to help hold you accountable for stepping into who you really are and releasing those layers and masks that no longer authentically align

I decided to do an acro yoga jam because when I have practiced acro-yoga for the first time I felt free but I felt free with others and I want to share this with you.

Acroyoga is a community-based practice that encourages personal transformation.

Acroyoga invites you to experience the full spectrum of your being through opportunities to:
-give and receive
-support and be supported
-experience strength and sensitivity.

It is a systematic approach to health and healing designed to be accessible for every practitioner.
It is fun to practice and fun to watch.

“The best of acro yoga is that it brings people together in the old fashion way, through human connection, touch, and play”

Jason Nemer

No one knows exactly when this practice started, acrobatics and yoga have been mixed in many ways for thousands of year.

But it has been found photos with ancients yogis practicing similar poses to what it is Acroyoga today with kids.

No a days there are two well known yoga shcool in Canada, “Acroyoga Montreal and “Acroyoga International”, among many other qualify teachers

Acroyoga is all about community, relationships, and partnerships. As grown beyond one school or one person only. Thanks to the curiosity of the modern yoga teachers, practitioners, and acrobats who have shared their knowledge now we can know acro-yoga as it is.

If you are currently living or visiting in the Cayman Islands
I invite you to come and join the practice.
