Welcome to the Flying Yogis! We are Sophia and Winfried Ruhs and are dedicated Yogis, musicians, artists (of life) and agents of change. We are excited to share our passion for movement, connection and healing with YOU!
We discovered AcroYoga in 2008 (learn more about our personal journey here) and have been sharing our love of this beautiful practice, and our commitment to Yoga as a spiritual practice and instrument for personal growth ever since. We teach workshops, retreats and festivals in Germany and internationally. From 2010 – 2013 we were the first teachers to bring AcroYoga to many cities around Europe.
AcroYoga beautifully blends the wisdom of yoga with the strength and elegance of acrobatics and the loving touch and sensitivity of Thai massage. In AcroYoga we work with partners and the group, supporting eachother to reach new heights. The experience of being held and supported is a powerful tool for cultivating trust and connection. The support of the group encourages us to push beyond our self-made boundaries and reach for our highest potential. With the help of the breath, gravity and ”metta” (loving kindness), we lovingly invite body and mind to release fear and tension, creating space for personal growth on all levels.
