Craving some balance in your life?
Defying the rules of gravity is usually reserved for astronauts and high-flying acrobatic artists, but with new classes in AcroYoga in Collective Cork on Tobin Street and Dervish on Cornmarket Street, you can enjoy balancing your upside-down dandasana pose while being coached by dedicated instructor Brendan Petrassi.
AcroYoga is a blend of acrobatics and yoga, usually paired with a massage or some form of restorative or yin practice. It is a fun combination of balancing partner work and yoga poses filled with plenty of giggles and playtime.
Classes take place on Fridays in Collective Cork and the instructor has also announced a new class in Dervish starting on June 28th.
“I’m delighted with how much enthusiasm and passion there is for AcroYoga in Cork,” said Brendan on Instagram.
To enjoy the classes, you don’t have to be an expert yogi or even a buff Britney.
“All you need to be able to do AcroYoga is a body, arms, legs, and above all an open mind to how much you can achieve with just the basic knowledge of this practise!”

Brendan is looking to keep the prices reasonable so as many people as possible can afford to partake:
“I don’t want AcroYoga to sit behind a paywall if at all possible, that’s why I’ve kept the rates as low as the Friday classes. It’s going to be awesome to share AcroYoga, Handstands, Thai Massage and more with everybody.”
“My ambition is to share this practice with as many as possible,” he said.
Prices start at €11 per class or €8 for a student or unwaged adult in Dervish on a Tuesday starting at 6:30pm, or €12.50 and €8 respectively for the class on Friday evenings from 7:45pm in Collective Cork.
If you’re really feeling it, you can get six weekly classes for €55 or €40 for student/unwaged people for the Tuesday session.
