Restorative AcroYoga | Sunday, September 17
12:30- 3:30pm
Unlock your potential to release tension through a meditative exchange of relaxing touch. Inspired by Thai Yoga Massage, we will begin with a simple asana designed to prepare the mind, body and spirit for giving and receiving, then we will share leg love and a supported savasana sequence curated for active yogis. The techniques learned on the floor will be taken to the air in partner flying yoga. Surrendering to gravity and to the support of a partner, is a deeply transformational practice, allowing the release of unnecessary holdings.
No partner or experience necessary.
