with Marcia and Crystal Galleher
Offered by mother and daughter Marcia Galleher & Crystal Galleher
Partner Yoga involves physical connection, support, conscious breathing, trust, communication and a joyful sense of play and creativity. When students practice their pose with a partner, each may find more stability, depth and accessibility together than expressing the posture alone.
Practice asana as a sacred ceremony within the exhilaration of Thrive Fest Hawaii. Group mandala yoga poses will be inserted into the session also, manifesting a deeper sense of Unity.
Participate in the Bhakti vibration of chanting with the harmonium led by Crystal.
Come join this fun and exploratory class with your partner or come by yourself to find a yoga mate there. Open to all levels of yoga experience.
Partner Yoga will be accompanied by John Galleher (husband/father) playing the ambient sound of the handpan, inspiring the atmosphere of blissful connectedness and love.
