Do you long to feel more connection with others, or with your
partner, and you're not sure how to make it happen?
In this experiential program you will connect with your
partner, a friend you bring, your parent or son or daughter,
your sister or brother, or a friend you make in class through
conscious breath and movement. You will enjoy simple shared
breathing techniques and easy yoga movements that
powerfully open your heart and get your energies flowing.
With detailed yet simple instructions, you will give and
receive a Thai Yoga Massage (fully clothed) and bask in the
sensations of openness and ease in your body.
If you've ever done any partner or doubles yoga, you know
how it wonderfully opens and connects you, to yourself, to the
other person, and to the universal power of BIG LOVE. If it's
new to you, get ready for an amazing experience of giving and
receiving energy and feeling fully alive!
All welcome; no prior yoga or massage experience necessary.
Couples welcome, singles welcome, friends welcome, all
orientations welcome. If you come solo, we will pair up in
class. This will be a safe environment to relax and enjoy the
pleasures of simple touch and physical movement in. Thai
massage is done fully clothed, with simple movements rather
than pressure or kneading muscles. Everyone can do it.
There is no nudity and this is not an erotic encounter.
