Dance. Fly. Thai with Whakapaingia & Gabrielle Geller

April 5, 2024
5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Be guided starting with a complete body warm-up that transitions into a creative dance to ignite the soul. Hence, beginning with dance. As you attune with your being, our connection will drift into the presence of others through partner exercises. Followed by a simple therapeutic fly flow that leads into calming Thai massage. All are welcome in this class and we uphold a culture of consent. You are invited to explore new things while honoring your needs throughout the class.

Wear comfortable clothes, bring a mat, and a water bottle. Come alone or with a companion.

Gabrielle Geller
As an aspiring acrobat and circus artist, Gabrielle practices a contemporary creative fusion of tumbling, hand balancing, partner acrobatics, hand-to-hand, ecstatic dance, aerial arts, and more.
Her style parallels and connects to the rhythms of the natural world in a body-based somatic healing, meditation, and breathwork practice. Gabrielle has taught movement practices since 2015 including tumbling, gymnastics, handstands, partner acrobatics, yoga, and somatic movement. Her approach to teaching is empowering, creative, playful, and collaborative. Her hope and life commitment are to contribute to a world filled with more joy, peace, and sustainable living.

Whakapaingia Luke
Whakapaingia comes from Aotearoa (New Zealand) born from a long line of Maori healers and leaders. Friends call him Waka. He is the spiritual heartbeat of the AcroLove movement helping people become better versions of themselves through Acro Yoga (therapeutic flying and acrobatics), Dance (Haka), and bodywork (Thai yoga massage).

Waka has traveled around the world, sharing this practice of unconditional loving kindness by flying humans at festivals, on cruise ships, movie sets, mansions, floors of bars, and on the street helping thousands of people find the gifts of trust, joy, laughter, play, balance, and release.

Whakapaingia’s passions and knowledge help create better, happier humans.
