YOGA FOR 2 - Spring 2014 -2Sunday (4:00-6:30pm – Please note time has changed from what was published in Newsletter). Have fun exploring one of the most difficult of all yogas: the yoga of relationship. When we practice with a partner the shifts between balance and imbalance, support and challenge are more complicated when you practice with a partner. As relationships become playful, judgment fades and joy emerges. Poses can be modified to fit any body. The focus is less on the pose and more on what your interactions teach you.

Carolyn and Rocky bring a curiosity about what sustains a relationship over time, and a willingness to explore the challenges in their own friendship to this workshop. If you can’t find a partner we’ll try and find you one.

Even

After

All this time

The sun never says to the earth

“You owe

Me.”

Look

What happens

With a love like that,

It lights the

Whole

Sky.
