These longer sessions are an opportunity to get your teeth into some of the elements of yoga in a more in-depth session, or to try a taster of something new.
Partner Yoga Workshop
(£25 - low income)
Yoga Loft above Dave's Gym,
160-162 Cottrell Road, Roath, Cardiff CF24 3EX
suitable for everyone with some yoga experience, no complete beginners sorry.
Partner work - finding union together. A chance to explore some fun and more challenging partner work variations. (not suitable for beginners).
Partnered practice, (sometimes known as contact yoga) can be a great way to deepen your practice, to go further with asanas with assistance, and is great fun! The great philosopher Plato said, “You can discover more about a person in an hour of play than in a year of conversation.” This is a longer partnered asana practice designed for students with at least 6 months yoga experience (not suitable for beginners).
Playing is a powerful way to gain insight into yourself, too.
Union is the basis of yoga: mind, body and spirit, but also union with each other and with the world around us. Partner practice, synchronising breath and movement, supporting each other in our exploration of practice, improves awareness and brings new elements to the practice. It can help to improve communication, trust, open-heartedness, freedom, confidence and joy.
This session is not specifically a ‘couples’ session (although it can be lovely to practice with a romantic partner) you are welcome to come with a friend (as long as they have at least 6 months experience in yoga asana) or on your own and be paired up on the day.
No need to bring equipment, but you might like some water.
