Her biggest regret was never going to summer camp as a child, but one thing acro has taught her, is that it's never too late to play like a kid, so she decided to organize Acrocamp to make all her childhood dreams come true.

The improvements that she saw both physically and mentally inspired her to delve deeper into this journey. She recently completed the 250 hour Fast Track Yoga Teacher Training program with The Yoga Sanctuary and is excited to share all the knowledge gleaned from this wonderful program. Joanne completed the 100hr Teacher Training program with ACROYOGA 360 in June and now she finds joy sharing the benefits of a regular yoga practice and the playfulness of Acro yoga with everyone – including her mother and her grandmother!
Andrew Moe has been involved with fitness most of his adult life and spent 20 plus years as a bodybuilder and powerlifter. After recovering from an injury he sustained from weight training, he discovered yoga and was amazed at the change in his functionality. He immediately fell in love with the practice and realized that he wanted to share it with as many people as possible. He recently attended the 250 hour Fast Track Yoga Teacher Training program at The Yoga Sanctuary and then stumbled upon Acro Yoga which he found to be the most playful and enjoyable form of exercise he had ever experienced. At any given moment you will find Andrew in a spontaneous and joyous handstand, or lying with his feet up in the air with his Acro partner flying safely overhead!
