Balance does not always means static equilibrium. Sometimes, the fun is making it playful, dynamic and creative! Yoga is all about connection and that connection begins with self-awareness. The Yoga of Acroplay begins with taking that awareness from personal practice and carrying it to the process of co-creation with through Acrobatics with another person. In this beginner friendly workshop, we will review Yoga poses that will be helpful for preparing you for a safe Acroyoga practice and show you approachable progressions you can do with a partner to challenge your trust, communication, strength and flexiblity. By the end of this session, you will sweat, laugh, and learn some cool moves that you can practice daily and maybe even flow through a series of common Acroyoga postures. No partner is necessary. No experience is necessary. 15 or older. Bring your joy, and desire to connect and explore!Prepaid tickets:
