Acrobatics & Surfing in the Caribbean!


  • Beachcomber Group Hotel Playa Las Canas 1111 Gaspar Hernández, Espaillat Dominican Republic (map)

Join Andrey Pfening in the Caribbean for a week of Acrobatics, Handstands, Strength Training, Mobility Training, and SURFING!!!

After 6 years of being involved in parkour community Andrey began his coaching career at two fitness facilities, Athletic Playground and The Cave. Teaching in these locations has allowed Andrey’s interests & specialties to spread to handstand balancing, acrobatics, and gymnastic strength training. He’s got 10 years of experience training himself and coaching adults.

What to expect:
- Basic acrobatic tricks mixed with some free-running tricks (variations of rolls, variations of cartwheels, mocaco, palm spin, back tucks, front tucks, side tucks (all of this will depend on the group level)
- The use of side by side video comparison (if needed to completely understand mechanics of a certain trick)
- Handstand training
- Strength and Mobility training
- Movement Games
- Use of Exercise Ball/Swiss Ball as mini-trampoline for simple fun and play as well as learning flipping (only if ready for it)
- Fun and Play on Slackline

Why come to the Dominican Republic to do this you ask???
***BECAUSE****
Training with a group of students while studying with an advanced teacher will keep you accountable, help you train energetically, methodically, and sustainably!
And why not do all this after starting your day out in the SURF followed by relaxing with a cocktail on the beach!!!
