Partner Yoga Workshop

The Joy of Partner Yoga

This playful workshop explores yoga by utilizing a partner to share postures, increase stretches, add stability to poses, and improve balance. While making conscious contact through your breathing, touch, and awareness, your partner’s presence co-creates an alignment that not only supports the physical body, but also touches the emotions and embraces the soul. Sign up with a friend or pair up with a classmate. Basic knowledge of yoga and previous yoga experience is helpful but not required. 

Teachers: Dana Blazich has been practicing yoga since 1999 and teaching at the YMCA since 2003 when she completed her FiTour Yoga Certification.  She currently teaches at the Moorer YMCA and Hearin-Chandler YMCA in Mobile.

Amanda Brenner has been practicing yoga since 2005 and teaching since April 2009, and she also has her FiTour Yoga Certification. She currently teaches at the Hearin-Chandler YMCA in Mobile and also at Yoga Birds.
