Queer AcroYoga – Beginner Level

April 13, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Join Our Eighth Beginner level Acro Workshop!!
In A NEW LARGER LOCATION! (address at the bottom)

Curious about Acroyoga?
Want to learn and practice with fellow queers?
Acroyoga is a beautiful practice in which trust, meaningful communication, and accurate self assessment become important and necessary.

Acroyoga is the amalgamation of partner acrobatics, yoga and Thai massage, married together in beautiful union to bring you shapes and motions that know little bounds.

Within this practice you will find yourself challenged to trust in yourself and your abilities. You will likewise find challenges within placing your trust in those you choose to practice with. The potential personal benefits of this are boundless.

For varying reasons, Attending Exercise classes with the general public can prove to be stressful for some members of the LGBTQ+ community. Together, lets create a space filled with courage, freedom and acceptance through practice with members of the LGBTQ+ community.

This is a space of acceptance, respect, and boundless love. All genders, orientations, ethnicities, sizes, socioeconomic standing, and ages welcome.
If you identify under the LGBTQIA+ umbrella, whether closeted and in need of friendly faces, or out AF, we want your presence.
Please be aware that this is a physically intensive class, and takes place on the second story.

Suggested donation for this event is $5-$10.
We want you way more than your money, if you do not have $$ for this, come anyways and leave a sticker, snack, button, or doodle as a donation. (Your instructors are suckers for cute stickers and vegan snacks). Hope to see you soon!
