Valentine’s Day Contact Yoga Workshop

February 14, The Mindful Body, SF
7:30 – 10:00pm

Join Alok and Anjuli for a special evening of contact yoga on Valentine’s Day

Contact Yoga is a blend of partner yoga, contact improvisation,and Thai massage that focuses on building trust, responsiveness, and healing connection. Grounded in traditional yoga postures and principles, Contact Yoga explores that mysterious and dynamic edge where two people connect – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Using the points of contact, Contact Yoga offers an inter-personal application of yogic philosophy that breaks down the barriers of separation while building an awareness and foundation for healthy relating.

You will gain skills to align your body in supporting others as well as tools to be more responsive and flexible. This class will include a spectrum of therapeutic to acrobatic flying, suitable for all levels. Contact Yoga opens the doors to playful connection, challenging your edge, and ending with a healing Thai massage sequence. We regularly encourage woking with different partners, so bring freinds or come meet new ones. Couples will find new ways of communicating trust and loving-kindness, and together we can create healthy relationships.

$70 Per Couple in Advance / $80 At the Door
Please call to register at: 415.931.2639 (72-Hour Cancellation Policy)
