Sunday, February 11, 5:30 – 7:30pm, Partner Yoga for Friends or Lovers Play. Laughter. Joyful movement. Deep connection. Spontaneity. Shared experience. Communication. Trust.
These are just a few words that have been used to describe the partner yoga experience.
Give. You will learn how to support your partner in various poses. Receive. You will lean how to completely let go and to trust.
As you learn to support others, you end up allowing yourself to be supported. This is a fundamental of trust: take control by letting go.
This is not an acro workshop, though the elements of AcroYoga will be explored. “AcroYoga blends the wisdom of yoga, the dynamic power of acrobatics, and the loving kindness of healing arts. These three lineages form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, playfulness, and community.” (an excerpt from
All levels of practice are welcome. The aim of the workshop is to make it accessible no matter one’s body type, age, flexibility or strength. Modifications can always be made to accommodate Every Body!

So invite a friend, sister, brother, partner or loved one, and enjoy an evening of connection and play…and a festive treat of wine and chocolate!  To register, please follow this link to the Amara Yoga and Arts Website
