Exploration

Partner Yoga is an exploration of "the language before words" where we get curious about how good touch and the combination of surrender (allowing) and resistance (engagement) can create an interplay that improves our understanding of poses, the somatic intelligence of our own bodies, and the accelerated learning that happens when we work together.

 

Investigation

Play is divine.  Neuro-biology, social-psychology, and somatic therapies have just started asking some really important questions about the ways we are wired for connection and adaptability.  We'll investigate topics related to how we connect, play, and interact that drive our mood, affect, and experience.  An embodied, playful practice is good medicine.  We'll investigate contact and get curious about:

* What does support look like?

* What kind of connection?

* How does my "no" make my "yes" better?

* What is good touch?

* How does Partner work inform the Practice?

* How do these elements of traditional yoga change when engaging w/ a partner? * And how does this translate into my life and the way I relate?

 

All levels welcome.  This is a great way to allow partners, couples, friends and families to engage that supports beginners as well as seasoned practitioners.
