Group Cannonball Swings & Many Things That Swing
Cannonball swings start with the flier’s stomach facing the ceiling and two bases hold the flier’s arms. From this position, we will swing the flier to hands to hands, partial backflip, and short routines.
Swings involve two or four bases holding the flier's feet and arms. From this position, the flier is toss up laying flat into the air. The flier is tossed feet to hands or hands to hands.
A beating heart.
Therapeutic Flying to Recharge
By Kimber Brenneman & Jesse Bowes
If you need a little break but want to keep moving to join us for some Therapeutic Flying and partner stretching. We will be practicing foundational Therapeutic Flying to relax, stretch and recharge.
Thai Body Tour
By Mary Aranas & Laura Zeigler
Experience a Thai massage reset. We move up the feet, legs, hips, and torso, get some juicy side-lying shoulder therapy, then some hip and back love. We flow through major sets of hardworking muscles to detox and release, so you can play again! Expect to give and receive, in turn, an extended, full sequence, and emerge cleaner, light and energized.
Comfort moving between kneeling, sitting, and standing while following a guided bodywork flow you will be taking your resting partner through. Willing to listen while giving and receiving care, for a safe, nurturing, healing exchange.
