Partner Acrobatics (often referred to as AcroYoga, or Acro) offers an exploration into partner dynamics, through balance postures and movement. We will be working on supporting (basing) and flying in a variety of postures, learning how to use (as well as develop) strength, stability and balance. Each class will offer a focus on different moves, allowing you to slowly build up your repertoire.
If you have never tried anything like this, don't worry, this class is meant to be for everyone. We will gladly walk you through the basics. Now remember, this class is all about having fun and possibly learning something about yourself in the process. It will be available on a drop-in basis, until there is enough interest to develop into a progressive series. The cost will be $15/class, or $50/month. You can come solo, or with a partner. For more information, please check out the listed website.

Sensory Processing: More than just 5 senses.
Did you know that there are actually more than just 5 senses? Our sensory system consist of 7 categories, including proprioception, tactile, vestibular, visual, auditory, gustatory, and olfactory senses. This discussion will look at the way our bodies take in sensory information from the environment, organize it, and then use it within our everyday life.
Sensory Issues VS Behavioral, Emotional, or Transition issues
Is it a sensory problem? Or is it a behavioral, emotional, or transitional problem? Sometimes it can be difficult to differentiate between these 4 areas of concern. This discussion will help to aide us to identify the root of the issue; whether it's sensory-based, related to a behavioral or emotional issue, or is it difficulties with being able to transition.
