What is Therapeutic Flying?
Therapeutic flying is essentially an inverted version of Thai Yoga, or like having someone put you through yoga postures while being inverted. The practitioner uses their feet to suspend the client, primarily at the top of the thighs by the hip crease. The use of gravity in this inverted form of bodywork helps to lengthen the spine and release muscle tension in a unique and fun way.

Play, relax, and unwind! In this workshop, you will play with the subtle forms of communication, trust, surrender and the power of connection. We will start by warming the body through dynamic flow connecting partners through breath and movement. From there, we will move into groups of three to take flight!
