I began a consistent yoga practice in 2007. At the time, I was an avid runner and, after sustaining a back injury, I needed to seek out other methods of receiving the same meditational and physical benefits. It didn’t take long before I realized my yoga practice was providing much more than I initially expected; it had positively changed and influenced who I was.

2) Having Fun.
Partner yoga can help you do both! Join Lesley Pelkey, E-RYT, and George Charalambous, E-RYT, for this playful workshop as we invite you to explore connection, support and trust through partner poses.
Partner yoga is not a substitute for an individual practice but is a way to inform and strengthen your capacity to connect to the world around you as well as yourself. Selected postures are non-acrobatic and designed to stretch and strengthen the body.
