Celebrate the joy of connection: AcroYoga Weekend

St Valentine’s Day Workshop: Yoga Connection – AcroYoga & Partner Yoga

Saturday 14 February 15:00-18:00


Art Yoga Studio and Yohann Guichard welcome you to a celebration of movement, breath and togetherness.  Bring someone special – whether that’s a lover, friend(s), or yourself!

Partner Yoga is a style of yoga practiced specifically with another or with a group, complementing traditional forms of the practice. It uses and develops compassion, listening and sharing, providing the opportunity and space for creativity and adventure in the geometry of postures.

Acroyoga on Valentine's DayAcroYoga is an aerial adaptation of Partner Yoga and is often called ‘The Yoga of Trust’.  We will explore a number of simple techniques of Acroyoga, accessible to all, during this workshop.  Some parts of the series will be practiced in pairs, others in trios, and others in a circle of participants.

It’s going to be fun!  Come join us for some moments of adventure, some laughter and a flight into happiness.
