The quality of the time we spend with the people that we love so much will be reciprocated in our hearts over and over again when we are open to giving, supporting and receiving. You can find and strengthen your foundation with your loved one, parent, child or friend at Brantley and Kendall’s Partner Yoga Workshops.
Yoginis and yogis gathered at North Shore Yoga in Chattanooga, TN this Thanksgiving weekend to reinforce those bonds and open their hearts to what is possible when they have each other.
I went to assist, take some photos and just observe the aliveness in the room that afternoon. The expansion of heart energy that seemed to flower in each posture was somewhat overpowering yet so welcome at the same time.
Ever tried a simple forward fold with the weight of your loved one on top of you for support, breathing together for a gentle deepening? What about the classic Navasana (Boat Pose) with your partner’s feet pressed into yours, holding one another’s arms to help you both lift your hearts towards each other?
Indeed, having each other is something wonderful to be thankful for.
It might even be just supporting your partner in an easy, seated posture, back to back, gently syncing the cadence of what is now one breath. And then there’s the beat of one heart.
Or maybe your partner or friend can help you fly. Is that possible? A room full of partners, friends and family in Chattanooga now know that it is. Brantley and Kendall will show you how.
No experience is necessary. Maybe half the room was new to yoga, and quite a few experienced practitioners were still novices in partner yoga. With Brantley and Kendall as your guides, you and your partner will learn to teach each other. Imagine what could happen next.
It was quite a vibe in the studio this weekend. What a way to find gratitude for those we love.
