“My life took a turning point when I encounter Thai Massage many years ago on an adventure journey in Thailand. The experience left so many benefits on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level that pushed me to dive deep into this ancient healing art to give and share with others. It is a sacred communication with 2 bodies, a meditation in motion, an art form to awaken the souls and open the heart for both receiver and practitioner. This life passion took me to travel extensively in both Thailand and Europe to study with gifted teachers, learning the static, dynamic and Osteothai approaches. And here I’m so happy to share this passion with you.
During the workshop we will start with a meditation to be present and to open the heart and we will move on soft and mindful touch for the feet, the leg lines and the back, using static and dynamic work to facilitate the pranic flow, following the inner rhythm and the restore balance to connect to our soul."
Åsa Kalyani Rudehill (Sweden)
YOGA & MEDITATION
We’re thrilled to present one of our favorite Yoga and Meditation teachers, the wonderful Åsa Kalyani Rudehill from Sweden. Åsa is a previous dancer and trained in different schools of body work.

ACROYOGA & ACROBATICS
For the first time, WAP will have teachers from S-LOVE-NIA! Right now they're in Spain teaching at the Partner Acrobatics Intensive! We can't wait! This couple is collectors of crazy washing machines and very skilled in a variety of different entries into both lying and standing F2H, H2H and rH2H (it might sound like dangerous chemical components, but they are actually ingredients for amazingly fun acro - come and learn!)
Their skills also include WHIPS, POPS and ICARIAN acro. With a broad knowledge and a long experience, they are great at adapting classes for students at different levels and to help upgrade their acro skills. Their focus for the festival is on technique and their workshops will be very accessible to lady-bases and same size partners.

Cristina Vittoria Balcerek
”I'm Cristina Vittoria Balcerek (@chiccabalcerek) from Italy, I've been doing gymnastics since I was three years old. I continue the tradition left by my grandparents teaching artistic and acrobatics since I was sixteen to children and adults, from beginners to advanced. From five years I have been managing my sport association (@gymnastxasd) together with my mother and in this space I have also included aerial silks and lyra, which I try to develop thanks to the experience gained with years of sporting career behind me. For twelve years I have represented Italy in the major international equestrian vaulting competitions.
I followed the training course Kataklò Professional Coach of Accademia Kataklò by Giulia Staccioli, achieved levels one and two of Aerial Physique Teacher Training by Jill Franklin and attended numerous workshops with both Italian and foreign artists. I like to keep myself updated and see new realities in order to get ideas and mix the various styles and methodologies.
I try to leave a mark on the life of every person I meet, transmitting my passion for what I teach. I hope you will have a lot of fun during my lessons."

PILATES FOR ACRO
"Hi, I'm Linda! I'm a former rhythmic gymnast, a former dancer and a current Pilates teacher! I will share my Pilates lessons in preparation for the "acro" disciplines, working on flexibility, on holding and breathing! There will be no lack of laughter and moments of challenge, but we will always end with a wonderful relaxation!"
ACRO & AERIAL YOGA
"My name is Federica Giannopolo and I am a cultivator of wellbeing and make use of various disciplines that over the years I was fortunate enough to get to explore deeply. Pilates, for a good muscular control and Yoga for balance. To get to know the body and mind, Aerial yoga, flying on a soft fabric and finally Acroyoga, teaching people to work together and to develop intelligent bodies, able to adapt to different situations in life and to have fun in an incredible way. I believe in the infinite connection with the whole and that each of us has her or his own journey to discover on this path called life. But I believe even more strongly that there is nothing more powerful than a smile and a hug to make all of this possible."
