Sun. 2/28 Annual Partner Yoga Workshop at Bliss

ANNUAL BLISSBLISSBLISS PARTNER YOGA WORKSHOP

Sunday February 28, 2010 BlissBlissBliss offers it’s annual Partner Yoga Workshop.  This year we have split it into two seperate sections – a more physical, asana-focused Partner  Yoga session from 12pm – 2pm;  followed by a relaxing and restorative yogassage session from 3pm – 5:30pm.  Bring your own partner or we can partner-up there; so especially for these sessions pre-registration is greatly appreciated.  Each session is $25 per person,  and as always 10% goes to our donation partner,  The Family Fit Foundation.  Read on for more details.

PARTNER YOGA is a wonderfully supportive, connecting and deepening practice – each partner actively performs the posture to support the other and share the work; rather than the giver/receiver relationship in yogassage.   Many postures, especially those with a balancing component, can be easier with a partner.   And it’s a fun, light-hearted, exploratory practice that is the perfect complement (or start!) to any yoga practice.  Nicole Gautier-Schatz’ Partner Yoga/Yogassage classes in the l990’s are what hooked me on yoga!!

YOGASSAGE is a combination of gentle massage, assisted stretching, and passive yoga postures; along with simple meditation and pranayama(breathwork).  A calming, relaxing and restorative practice, it is unlike Partner Yoga in that one partner is relaxed – generally “receiving”  the practice.  A perfect grounding to the active start of Partner Yoga!
