PARTNER YOGA WORKSHOP
With Ellen Shapiro and Joey Doherty, Certified Kripalu Yoga Teachers
SATURDAY, JUNE 18 1 p.m.- 5 p.m.
NAMASTE YOGA CENTER
922 E. Lafayette St, Suite 1, Tallahassee, FL, 32301
Come join us for a fun afternoon of exploring yoga interactively.
Bring a friend, your significant other, a co-worker, a yoga or gym
buddy, or just yourself and we will partner up in class. In partner
yoga, we create an atmosphere of trust, we deepen our connections
with others, we stretch deeply with the added support, and we
develop our ability to give and receive feedback. A caring, safe
atmosphere is created which allows movement, breath, and touch to be
shared and enjoyed in healthy and positive ways.
In this workshop we will do postures that are mutually created
through balancing and counterbalancing each other, and we will do
partner-assisted stretches, where one partner gives support,
adjustments, or gentle pressure to help the other deepen into a
stretch. We will breathe together as a way to center ourselves.
You will find that practicing yoga with another person increases
your sensitivity to others and also to yourself, creating a
beautiful balance of harmony in relationship and deep inner
connection with Spirit.
All are welcome, and no prior yoga experience is necessary. We will
lead the postures in a gradual fashion, so that each person's limits
can be respectfully honored. With this approach, differences in
body size or strength are unimportant.
Please bring water and a blanket, and wear loose, comfortable
clothing. Yoga mats and props (blocks and yoga ties) are available
at the Center. Call or email Ellen at 222-0003 or
with any questions.
COST: $45 per person. Space is limited so please register early.
