I've just completed my first AcroYoga immersion, and it was so much more than I ever could have imagined. I was with some of the most beautiful, loving souls for 4 full days. A metaphor for life, I learned how to embrace my fears, surrender control, trust the process, and most importantly, BE love, for myself, and for others. What an absolutely incredible journey through the mind, body, and soul. I am so grateful for the experience and the opportunities for growth I discovered in myself--and I am not talking about a cool acro trick!! Thank you to Justin Caruso and Alina Flor for facilitating this magical journey
Thank YOU for passing on and spreading your beautiful loving Energy. I missed going to the immersion this morning. Even though i went back to the same routine as before, today was a different day. Eternally grateful for having the opportunity to be your student for a few days.
Many more will come
Let the love bubble expand! I woke up this morning and almost got ready for another immersion day. Instead, I took the route to work with a peaceful smile on my face. Thank you all for making it possible. Much love!!
Thank you for such an incredible experience you just facilitated. You are gifted teachers, really. The material was presented with such ease; in an accessible, thorough, as well as FUN way! The healing that came from Thai Massage ( every morning ), and the playful laughter from flight; I truly feel nourished, inspired, and transformed. My deepest gratitude.
Thank you for facilitating such a nurturing, healing, and transformative experience.
I feel in a really good place after such a beautiful immersion. Thank You!
The immersion was amazing. My mind and body are full of new knowledge, and my heart is overflowing with love from the beautiful acro community. Thank you for all of your instruction and inspiration.
I am singing praises for the connectedness and receptivity that I was blessed to experience this past week. Weaving threads of trust and surrender into one mandala of supreme symmetry, balance, and love. Learning how to allow my inner light to sink deeper into a space that homes boundless expansion. If we can move with ease and grace in our lives with an open accepting unconditional love for ourselves, only then can we truly give love to others. I am a conduit of radiance that is open to shine and was born to shine. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Chris Loebsack and Justin Caruso for awakening these gems of wisdom within me. I will never forgot our Lunar Immersion together and the beautiful sangha that was created. Endless gratitude to the divine healing in AcroYoga
Sweet Justin you are such an inspiration. I truly enjoyed spending the last 5 days learning and growing with you. I have learned so much and feel so blessed to have realized what Acro Yoga is truly about. I feel reborn and ready to focus on Therapeutic flying and Thai massage. The rest will follow 🙂 So excited for your Journey to Costa Rica. I know it will be magical. I will see you again soon.
Justiiiiiiiiin GRACIASSSS! THANK YOUUU! It was a truly amazing experience. I joined the Lunar Immersion to put myself outside of my comfort zone. At first I thought I was just going to be a spectator not having any experience but your teaching techniques were flawless and I very quickly felt like I was part of it all. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the aspect of giving in Acro Yoga I had a very big need to channel my need to give in a loving and nurturing way. Receiving was too much to handle! (No words to describe) The whole experience filled me with a renewed energy. My students have not stopped commenting that I look so happy. It was such a great investment. I still don't have the confidence to fly them or try any of the techniques but I do have my 6 yr old daughter and she is my little person to practice with. I still have to keep learning so for now I will continue to study as much Acro yoga as I can. Thank you for coming to Puerto Rico, for being such a great instructor, for sharing your light and for doing what you do. I wish you a whole lot of goodness!!!! I hope our paths cross again soon Big Hug
