Reciprocity at Work!

Join us for a workshop about reciprocity, yoga, and sharing your practice with the world!

Partners Yoga

Monday, March 28th, 6-7:30pm

4245 East Avenue

Rochester, NY

This Partners for Serving and Partners for Learning workshop will begin with a group yoga practice led by Lynne Boucher packed with plenty of fun and interactive partner poses! We'll move into breakout groups to dream up some ways to share yoga with the populations you engage with at site.

Breakout 1: Alternative Chair Yoga, led by Rebecca Silliman

If you can breathe, you can do yoga! This session will focus on ways to adapt yoga for people who may not feel comfortable getting on a mat, are physically unable to participate in a vigorous practice, or in places where there are no mats available.

Breakout 2: Self-Regulation for Youth, led by Alyssa Henry

Youth 10 and up often experience intense emotions that can be difficult to manage. This session will zero in on yoga-based techniques to use with youth for emotional regulation.

Breakout 3:Yoga as Playful Engagement, led by Vika Turner

Even the youngest members of our population can benefit from yoga. If you work in spaces with younger youth, the session could be for you! Yoga can be a useful way to engage youth and channel their energy in a positive way, and this session will explore how yoga can be playtime.

Workshop attendees will be able to select which of the three breakouts they would like to attend depending on which is most relevant to their site placement and the skills they'd like to explore.
