Acro & thai massage drop-in

ACRO & THAI MASSAGE DROP-IN
FRIDAY, JULY 27TH @ 7 - 9pm

WITH TIM SEIWERATH

This is a donation based class, see below..

Learn to fly— learn to launch and sustain a partner in the air— learn AcroYoga! Does it look too challenging? Don't underestimate your power-- if you're athletic enough to complete an intermediate-level yoga class, we can shape that athleticism into the Jedi qualities that make flight possible: “Bone Stacking” (using bone strength to carry weight), Verbal and non-verbal communication, core awareness, balance, and safe spotting skills.

From this foundation, we'll take off on a two-phase journey. You'll explore:
1. Therapeutics- in which the “flyer” is relaxed; including spinal tractioning, building to tractioned backbends and twists
2.  Acrobatics- in which the “flyer” is active; building to supported inversions

We guarantee you'll be sore from the work and play (especially in your face, from smiling)-- so we'll weave in healing Thai Massage practices. You'll leave feeling amazing, and amazed by what you've just done!

OTHER TID-BITS
Appropriate partners will be arranged in class-- though you're welcome to come in pairs or groups, it's not necessary. 
We can usually practice safely with-- and even heal-- injuries or other limitations in AcroYoga. If you have any concerns, please come to class early to consult with Tim and we'll work out modifications that can make this practice safe and accessible for anyone with a basic yoga practice.

YIN EXPERIENCE SUMMER STAYCATION

YIN EXPERIENCE SUMMER STAYCATION
FRIDAY AUGUST 17TH @ 7 - 8:30PM
WITH SHAWNDA & ROSEMARY

YIN YOGA + LIVE MUSIC + GENTLE ASSISTS

Slowly unravel and surrender to the nourishment of your breath and the quiet power that is Yin Yoga. Yin yoga allows you to explore the levels of depth that are connected to the inner workings of the body, mind, and breath. By allowing our bodies to linger in stillness, poses may be held anywhere from two to ten minutes, we begin to stimulate and target the deeper connective tissues in the body and activate our parasympathetic nervous system.

During these 120 minutes together we will move in resonance with the breath and the live classical music that will fill the space. During this journey we will slowly shape shift in a way that provides the spaciousness for you to explore the deeper layers of self that linger beneath your surface.
Gentle assists and light touch with essential oils will accompany this experience (optional).

WHAT TO EXPECT
Expect to receive an introduction of the overview of yin yoga; it's history, physical benefits, and why the breath plays an essential part for this practice. Following this, we will begin to move through this yin practice by the guidance of Shawnda Noone and live music by Rosemary Ponnekanti. You will leave this experience feeling spacious in your body, mind, and breath. Dress cozy, bring a mat, water, and a journal if this suits you and join us for an experience like no other.
