All are members of the ‘Circle of Magic’ AcroYoga Dance project, and together attended the first European AcroYoga Montreal Teacher Training in Italy in April 2017. Debora Steinegger Debora loves movement and is full of energy and love for life, nature, music, artistry, and for the versatility of the human body. She’s a primary school teacher and has studied sports science at the University of Basel. Since a teenager she’s choreographically active, and is training dancing (Hip-Hop, Reggae, Contemporary Dance, Salsa, Jazz, Ballet), yoga, acrobatics, pole-dance, and silks. In 2013 she started with AcroYoga and Partneracrobatics. A.o., Debora was a dancer at “Nexus of Viet Dang” and at “Passionred”. She originally founded the dance company UNI-T ( at the University of Basel. From 2009 to 2015 she taught dance didactics & pedagogy at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts () and in the regional professional training for schoolteachers. Debora is mother of two children, currently working as a primary teacher and at the Circus School Basel () she teaches partneracrobatics and silks to children. In 2016, she founded the AcroYoga Dance Project ‘Circle of Magic’ for which she has developed the concept and choreographies. Cate Spinnler Cate loves to move ever since she was a girl and for her a day without movement is like a day without the sun and a smile. Gymnastics and dancing gave her joy and a passion to deepen what she loved. Connecting more to the body and mind, being curious about the alignment in many ways of different movement, opened new doors for her. Today she loves to teach Yoga (Yin Yoga and Vinyasa Flow), got hocked up with AcroYoga back in 2011 and did all her trainings to become an teacher (level II). She teaches AcroYoga classes, workshops and retreats all over Switzerland and currently is in the process to become an AcroYoga lunar and elemental immersion teacher. She loves to focus on smart movement and training in a similar way, and she moves to spread the joy and love for what she does, because connection through playfulness and trust are just amazing. Olivia Winiger Olivia is extremely passionate about human powered mobility. Curiosity keeps leading her down new paths and she loves to combine new things and a spirit of playfulness to connect with your inner child. Especially the practice of Yoga and AcroYoga is one of her greatest teachers as it provides endless opportunities to leave your comfort zone, to be adventurous and playful, to connect with others but also stay present with yourself. Olivia is one of the founders of Bern MOVES as it has been a vision of hers to create space where movement enthusiasts can connect and share their passion with each other in a mindful way. She teaches Yoga, handstand and AcroYoga classes and workshops/retreats on a regular base. Daniel Marty Daniel has always been passionate for all kind of outdoor activities and (fun) sports, be it course cycling, swimming, mountain running, soccer, hiking, climbing, skiing, stand up paddling, and most notably windsurfing. He was working several years as a windsurf instructor back in the 90s and one of his passion remains the hunt for big storms and waves (‘stormchase’). In 2008 he discovered Yoga and in 2013 AcroYoga, which ever since became a new passion. Daniel believes that AcroYoga or partneracrobatics definitely is a ‘fun sport’, that combines loads of fun and sport with meeting people and making new friends all over the world by taking risks and having and sharing success (or failure) together, and by building trust and communities. He took part in numerous AcroYoga immersions and Acrobatic Festivals and workshops, and he has completed a teacher training with and more recently in Dutch Acrobatics at “Stichting Staple” ( with Jim Klinkhamer & Det Rijven. Daniel organizes and occasionally holds acrobatic workshops and teaches weekly at a school circus (‘Bischu’).
