Frisian Acro Chillout

Frisian Acro Chillout 25-08-23

The Frisian Acro Chillout is:

  • Moving and playing with your body, inspired by the people around you
  • No more rushing from one awesome workshop to the next one
  • Having all the time to make new friends or to just hang out with old ones
  • Refining known skills and learning or developing new moves?
  • A short break in the country side of Friesland ticked off your bucket list
  • Mouth-watering cuisine without the need of you chopping veggies

The Frisian Acro Chillout is the experience for you.

For the fourth year this event aims to attract 20-30 like-minded movement enthusiast. An atmosphere will be created where we, as friends, can be, meet and play. A space where there is no difference between teachers and students. No difference between new-bees and professionals. Sharing tricks for the future and insights from the past.

Enjoying 3 meals a day and helping out with things that need to be done in an organic manner. Where having no agenda results in receiving impressive pop-up workshops being offered by unexpected talents.

In a beautiful farmhouse just outside Leeuwarden we have the availability of a huge barn with 2 levels, several smaller buildings to sleep in, eat or do massage and yoga, and even an outdoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna.

And off course there is plentiful grassland surrounding the buildings to play outdoors and to put up your tent or park your campervan. Sleeping can be done indoors as well, where dorm rooms with prepared beds are available for a small surcharge.

While some of you might want to throw in a workshops of any kind, demo your latest trick, impress others with a song or poem,  some choose  to just be present and unwind. Letting it all happen as the weekend unfolds.

A budget price, to cover the expenses and provide food, is kept as low as possible by carrying out all the household task ourselves. Limited to a number of 30 participants we wish to keep it cosy and intimate, rather than action packed and crowded.

If the above resonates with you, then please check out the Facebook event page, show that you are interested, or even better, send me an email, so you will have the benefit of pre-registration and avoid the cues.

 

Looking forward to see your smiling face, end of August, in the north of the Netherlands @ the Frisian Acro Chillout ’23
