How do we integrate our practice with our social consciousness? Knowing our place in the world only happens when we know our world. At AcroYoga Montreal, there is no separation of AcroYoga, Yoga, and Reality. To live apart from this world is not the goal; rather, we strive to transform ourselves and our societies rooted in a deep understanding of the social, political and economic systems & institutions we engage with on a daily basis.Everybody is welcome to attend this discussion, regardless of level of AcroYoga practice.REGISTER___________________________________________
