Discount for registering by January 18.February 17, Sunday, 12-3 p.m. Partner Play: Exploring the edges with Gretchen and EllenIn this special class we'll tap into the freedom and spontaneity that arise when we give ourselves over to our playful nature in a supportive environment. You will experience a variety of partner yoga poses to explore your edges with the support and challenge of a partnerin some you will mirror each other, and in some you will take turns assisting each other to expand your flexibility, strength, and balance. We'll begin with some relaxed seated and standing poses, to open hamstrings, hips, chest, and shoulders, and then move into more challenging balance, back-bending and inverted poses. You will have a chance to explore flying yoga, where a flyer feels the sensation of free flight while supported by a base, generally with a spotter as well. Simple Thai Yoga massage techniques will be woven in as we flow in and out of the roles of giver and receiver. Some poses may involve multiple people or the entire group. You will expand your capacity to trust, connect, and play openheartedly, building confidence as you let go of fear and move beyond your everyday limits with the support of a partner and the group.This workshop is best-suited for those familiar with basic yoga movements, who have a base of strength and flexibility, and who are free of acute injuries or challenges. Bring a yoga partner or come solo and we will partner you up. $35 per person. For more info and to pre-register contact Ellen ellsha@...
