Explore the wonders of partner collaboration and delve into your stretching potential. An opportunity to slow down and cultivate the art of deep listening, conscious touch and the capacity of giving and receiving.
This three-hour workshop will introduce you to yoga stretches in pairs, that will enable to you to go deeper than you can go yourself and introduce you to the qualities and techniques of Thai massage. In particular, we will cover: –
the power of the breath;
the use of gravity, body weight and harmonics to release; and
the qualities of grounding, accepting and witnessing.

AcroYoga aims to encourage you to move, connect and play.This is a solar offering that delves into the fire of acrobatics.Once we have got you comfortable in your personal body awareness and engaged in your acrobatic bodies we will focus on two themes counterbalances and trio tricks.
Counterbalances explore the push-pull nuances of partner balancing; the engagement and mutual calibration that allows the creation of symmetrical and asymmetric structures, shapes and poses.
Trio tricks explore the creative refinements of working as a group.There is an added dimension to working as a three; the ability to listen and absorb in order to collaborate are some of the key qualities to successful trio balancing.
Come with an open mind and willingness to play. No partner needed.You will learn how to build progressively and be supported in the process.
