About the Event
Saturday, Aug 25th: 3-6pm & 6:30-9:30pm
Sunday, Aug 26th: 12-4pm
Immerse yourself in a restorative experience of stillness, mindfulness, and heart-warming connection using 3 different, yet related, modalities of movement. In this 10-hour intensive, you will learn and experience a trio of restorative yoga, therapeutic partner flying, and Thai massage, and how each support each other in the overall practice of personal growth and connection.
Through introspective work, you'll explore ways to trust, relax the body, cultivate listening, and connect with yourself and others. You will learn technical and tactile skills, as well as intangible skills such as patience, trust, connection, strength, and awareness (physically, mentally, and emotionally).
As we dive into the yin and yang of yoga and partner practice, we'll discover how the individual practice relates to working with others, and how we must first be in tune with ourselves to be in tune with others.
-Restorative yoga postures to tune-in to one's body and state
-Body mechanics and progressions of Thai massage and therapeutic flying
-Yoga flow and beginner acro yoga to cultivate technique, awareness, strength, and receptivity for restorative flying

Instructor: Brittany Pires
With a passion for helping others on their journeys, Brittany Pires, 200 E-RYT, began teaching yoga and acro yoga in 2015. During her acro yoga training, she discovered the transformative, therapeutic effects of Thai massage and began incorporating it in both her personal practice and her teaching. Following some injuries of her own, Brittany realized the importance of a restorative practice in healing and it can support and strengthen a partner practice, whether active or passive.
Brittany offers an empowering and personalized approach to yoga and partner practice. As every body has a different recipe for relaxation, she stresses the importance of using a yoga practice to serve the body and what it needs. Her style is a blend of teachings that focus on the individual's experience and body awareness, allowing students to cultivate listening to both oneself and their partner.
