Exploring Flying Therapeutics 

The Lunar side of AcroYoga allows us to slow down and cultivate the art of deep listening, conscious touch and the capacity of giving and receiving.

This workshop will introduce you to Thai massage techniques; the use of gravity, body weight, touch and harmonics to realign and release.  We will cover the foundations to flying therapeutics involving a base and flyer; the base embodies a solid structure for the flyer to experience inverted aerial passive balances that are blended with therapeutic massage techniques.

Open to all and especially those interested in massage or other forms of bodywork.  You will be working in pairs or in small groups.

Massage is not just a luxury its a way to a happier and healthier life.
