Elise Foster & Dean Hively

Elise Foster

In 2011, Elise "flew" for the first time and immediately fell in love with AcroYoga. Like nothing else she has experienced, AcroYoga has the ability to transform lives. As an AcroYoga teacher, Elise aims to bring the joy, power and healing energy that AcroYoga brought into her life to others. In April of 2014, Elise began performing with her good friend and fellow teacher, Dean Hively, in an acro-burlesque duo. Acrolesque has performed dozens of shows in the DC area, as well as at Burning Man, Divine Play Festival, and as roving performers at Beats Antique's Creature Carnival.

Dean Hively

Dean is a certified Level 1 teacher of AcroYoga. AcroYoga frees us from the assumed barriers we put on ourselves and our bodies, beginning with challenging the fundamental concept that our feet need to be on the ground. By embodying the roles of base, flyer, and spotter we develop skills in communication and trust, along with developing our physical yoga practice.

Dean has studied AcroYoga for five years, attending numerous regional trainings and also performing with Acrolesque. Before coming to yoga he had a long history of training in kung fu, including buddah palm, animal styles, chi gung, and lion dancing. The kung fu taught him a profound respect for the human form and its relation to the universe through connection with energy and body mechanics. By day he is an environmental research scientist.

Dean has a laid back and positive approach to life and teaching. His classes emphasize safety, form, and the energetics of partnership. His goal is to promote joy, amazement, and comfort in community.
