Lux has been a student of circus acrobatics for the past 20 years. Though he is now retired from the stage, Lux performed for many years in duo & trio acro acts.
Lux began teaching Acro to recreational practitioners and professional acrobats in 2005. Over the past decade, his approach to teaching and creating acro content has earned him a loyal following across the globe.

Today, Lux is best known as a teacher, content writer, and leader in the global acro community. In addition to teaching weekly intermediate and advanced series in Seattle, Lux regularly leads workshops and Teacher Trainings in the United States and around the globe, including at the Israel Acro Convention where he has been a central figure for over 10 years.


Yanai began his journey in the late 1990’s as a student of Yoga in the Iyengar method. He learned acro from the hands of several Dutch teachers, among them Peter van Valkenhoff. Yanai has been teaching acro - in Israel and around the world - for 18 years. In 2004 he also performed with his wife and 4 kids in circus street performances and on various stages around the world.

Yanai is as excited about the learning process as he is about the success of a particular exercise. He has conducted many workshops and classes in countries around the world and continues to teach weekly classes at the Kfar Yehoshua Circus School, in Karkur and Tel Aviv.

Yanai's way of teaching is characterised by flexibility and is full of curiosity. This allows him to explore together with his students the limits of what is possible. He teaches different acro styles, but specialises in standing acro, handstand, trios and acro for parents and kids.

הוא ושותפו הוותיק אבנר הוכפלד הקימו את AcroIsrael והשניים נחשבים בעיני רבים ל”אבות האקרו” בישראל.
