Victor Medrano


I am Victor Medrano. I finished the course in Physical Activity and Sports Sciences along with the master’s degree to be a Physical Education teacher. Such is my passion for education that this year I have also entered teaching.

Since I was little I started in Trampoline, but the sport that I have practiced the most is Roller Freestyle, that is, acrobatics on skates inside a skatepark. In 2019 I managed to be the champion of Spain in this discipline and I continue to participate in international competitions together with the Spanish team.

I have also completed the title of acroyoga teacher with the Acroyoga Prem association in Valencia.

The practice of this sport together with the studies I have completed have offered me a great transfer to be able to acquire and teach various circus skills.

In this way I have been able to develop myself within different circus modalities such as the following: Acrobatics on airtrack and trampoline, acroyoga, contemporary dance, aerial acrobatics, slackline (balance on a rope) or juggling.

I’ve tried different circus and not-so-circus disciplines: I started practicing aerial acrobatics in 2019 (webs, trapeze and hoop) and I couldn’t put it down, but before that I already practiced slacklining and some stretching and comprehensive mobility. I sign up for many bombardments and I have also received training and intensive verticals, acroyoga, contemporary dance, yoga,… Now I have also encouraged myself with the skates, the point is not to stop.

After years living abroad, the pandemic brought me back to Bilbao. It was the same pandemic that gave wings to my passion for acrobatic yoga and I started to combine my office work with different yoga modalities: aerial, inverted and vinyasa.

I have always understood sport as an escape, but it wasn’t until I started my master’s degree that my low state of mind (the demands of my studies, the bad Dutch weather and the physical and emotional distance from home, among others) pushed me to explore other forms of movement much more conscious and I understood that sport is even more than an escape: it is a cure and a healer.

Since then I have continued training in aerial yoga, aerial acrobatics, verticals, acroyoga… anything that involves flying 😉.
