Sun. 2/28 Annual Partner Yoga Workshop at Bliss


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!
