Use your fear
Preparation for inversion.
The theme is Fear. It's not that hard to invert, what makes it hard is the Fear of the unfamiliar and trust. The Fear of falling is the very element that keeps us safe, but not necessarily balanced. How do we transform fear into strength? We must first familiarize ourselves with our strength, and learn to trust our body to ride with fear.
Preparation for Yin
To a lot of people, Yin means enduring pain and pushing through it, but we will look at pain in a different light and how to become friends with it, and honor it. Pain is a great teacher, in Yoga and in life.
We will reflect on where is our yoga practice between these 2 major elements that cannot be seen, but can only be felt. The ultimate teacher that can truly navigate us is ourselves, in any journey. What has our Yoga practice taught us about ourselves? We will do a Yin Yang class revolving around these 2 elements.

Here you will have the opportunity to look into other people's eyes.
After gazing into 5 or 10 people’s eyes, you will begin to experience a beautiful feeling of opening and appreciation that everyone is unique and has something unique to offer.
Doing the breaks, you will have plenty of opportunity to talk to each other and exchange information to connect even deeper later on.
When we allow ourselves to gaze deeply into each other's eyes, many of our social masks and protections can drop away, even if it's just for a moment.
The result is that we get to experience the bliss of truly connecting.
