Join us for a rejuvenating afternoon of contact yoga led by Anjuli and Alok. This practice is a unique blend of Contact Improv., Partner Yoga and Thai Massage. We will explore unique ways of relating through weight sharing, counter-balance and therapeutic touch.

The teaching is crafted to cultivate your body’s natural impulse towards ease and connection while exploring your edge. The basic foundation of expansion is trust—both inner and outer. We will gradually build towards exercises that require deeper layers of trust and surrender. Expect to come away with tools that both strengthen and revitalize your body that you can practice with friends and loved ones.

Deepening our listening skills through somatic exercises creates space for authentic expression, release, resonance and empathy. We’ll take these skills into our therapeutics section focusing on effortless Thai massage techniques that allow you to relax into both giving and receiving.

All levels are welcome and no partner is needed as we regularly encourage switching partners. This workshop will leave you feeling more connected, strong and flexible.

Bring a yoga mat and your inquisitive, playful spirit!
Space is limited, please reserve in advance.
