Friday Night: Yoga & Partner Yoga Practice – A gentle restorative practice to ease into the weekend beginning to open the body, heart, and mind and then to open into nonverbal communication, human contact, and trust.

Saturday Morning: Acro Yoga – Continuing where we left off with more partner yoga easing into the basics of flying. We’ll mostly do therapeutic flying where the flier is passive as the base learns stability and the flier learns trust. We’ll also introduce elements of Thai massage.

Saturday Afternoon/Early Evening Inversion Practice – A series of yoga postures, exercises, and partner postures that teach and strengthen us for a deeper inversion practice.

Saturday Evening: Thai Massage – Sharing in the gift of giving and receiving we’ll take turns giving a full body Thai massage to each other.

Sunday Morning: Acro Yoga – An opportunity to fit all the pieces together, starting with more advanced partner yoga, then more advanced (acrobatic) flying where the flier is more involved with continued elements of Thai massage.
