About this workshop:
Dig out those yoga pants and dust off your crop tops come and join us for an afternoon dedicated to Yoga for couples lead by BSY’s Matthew and KiC’s Emma. After introductions, we’ll start the session limbering up and grounding down with a partner based asana practice led by our very own Matthew:
“Finding and strengthening connection with a loved one through yoga can bring a profound and lasting closeness to a couple. We’ll work on some shared breathing exercises to synchronise our brains, and then we’ll work into some partner poses to synchronise our bodies.
Trust, respect, inquisitive learning, mutual understanding. All these can be developed through a playful shared yoga experience. And you’ll be able to channel this into your own personal practice too!”
After a short break Emma will take the reins, and will guide you through ways couples can spend quality time together, and introduce you to some proactive techniques that help you keep, and deepen your connection:
“Yoga inspired movement and breath work form the basis of my part of the workshop, and whilst some of it will be physically challenging, you will leave feeling deeply relaxed and nourished.
Using our breath and our bodies as tools for self regulation and to help regulate our partner, is effective in a way that I wish I had discovered years ago. And, it’s totally available - we are always with our body! I’m going to offer you some tools you can throw in the mix when your connection needs that extra boost!
Lifting and supporting each other physically and mentally, you guys will have fun, learn some new tricks, and spend quality, connected time together.”
Who this workshop is for:
Couples of any persuasion who want to explore new elements of their relationship. Neither of you a Yogi? Only one of you a Yogi? No worries! This workshop is for beginners and regular practitioners, and will focus on the internal processes as well as increasing your capacity for more advanced movement.
