Charla Truesdale

Time: 2:30 PM – 3:45 PM; Room#006C

No previous yoga knowledge or experience is needed to learn how to connect with your partner using simple yoga techniques that any “body” can access. Experience the gentle power of breathing together, moving together, supporting each other, and reconnecting away from the busy pace of everyday life. Partner work will be interspersed with individual work, but everything in this workshop can also be experienced without a partner present. Everything is presented in a trauma-informed manner.
