There’s only one place where you can get away with asking a stranger about his or her favorite position—and that’s on a yoga mat.
The class is the brainchild of Raina Nemeth, a teacher who wanted to give her love-seeking yogi pals a space to flirt.
Finding a Yoga class for me is the equivalent to finding a partner. The one being something you want to stick with and spend time with each week. My morning glory will never be to wake up and practice the same vigorous routine every day and only avoid it on my period or moon days. But I personally need a bit of variety in my life, an element of surprise for my mind and body. Sometimes this is not to practise any asanas (postures) at all and instead I may meditate or do some pranayama breathing techniques. I have tried a lot of guys and a lot of yoga classes. Acro Yoga is a mix of yoga, acrobatics and Thai massage…no baby oil required!
I just can’t settle on one style and so I listen to what my body wants. I teach here on a Monday night so thought I would check out my fellow Yogi Cat Duval’s Friday evening class.
When I find one I like, I stick with it but I still like to experience new teachers and styles. However it does involve a ‘ménage a trois’ as you require a base, a flyer and a spotter.
"So I thought, Well, five minutes on your mat with someone will tell you if there's a connection."Having recently ended a serious relationship, I'm not ready to start dating again, but I want to test the waters and see who else is paddling around.
Still, I approach this class with some trepidation.
