CLASS DESCRIPTION:

The aim of this class is for participants to encounter moments of release through meticulous efforting, find pleasure in suspended inversions, and strengthen improvisational skills through various sensitivity and listening practices. We’ll strive for physical integration, and practice build community through generous observation and thoughtful feedback.
