Social distancing has created a yearning for human contact to be amongst family and friends, as well as being in proximity with other people.  This workshop is aimed at holding space to encourage empathetic connections, exploring therapeutic touch and the Buddhist understanding of loving-kindness “Metta Bhavana”. 

This workshop is for: –

  • people who are new to acroyoga therapeutics;
  • those who have not done lunar therapeutics in a while; and
  • those are feeling rusty and would like a steer back into the lunar practice of AcroYoga.

We will touch on the different aspects of this lunar practice, ranging from partner yoga,  assisted stretches, Thai massage and flying therapeutics. Each workshop will be different but the themes will remain the same.

You can come on your own, bring a friend or partner.
