Want to learn how to find deeper expressions of familiar poses with a little help?

Have you ever thought, "I just need someone to help me open up and hold this shoulder back?" or how can I do a forward fold of any type when I roll back on my pelvis, and strain my back? Join Paula Bortolotto THIS SATURDAY from 12-2pm to learn creative ways to look at poses, and deepen your practice and study of yoga.

*****You do not need a partner to attend*****

This workshop is for every student, who wants to learn simple easy ways to deepen your poses. When you help your partner, and "see" the pose from the outside, it helps you achieve the alignment and deeper aspects of the pose.
