Heart-Opening Partner Stretch Workshop Presented by Progressive Pilates

Heart-Opening Partner Stretch Workshop Presented by Progressive Pilates

This class will begin with a breath-based movement sequence to help awaken a sense of embodiment, openness, and connection. We will then be guided through a series of postures, stretches, and massage techniques that will be experienced with a partner, offering a blend of mobility, deep stretching, and muscular release. The emphasis will be on giving and receiving–the reciprocity of true connection. Allowing for both heart-opening and groundedness, we will leave feeling more connected to ourselves and more open to true connection with others. The workshop is open to all bodies. Bring yourself, a friend, or a partner!


About our teacher:

Brynne Billingsley founded Progressive Pilates Williamsburg in 2011 with the intention of sharing her life-long passion for movement and healing with the community. Her approach to Pilates is holistic, scientific, artistic and grounded in the belief that we should all feel exceptional in our own bodies. Through corrective movement and bodywork with an emphasis on alignment and breath,  Brynne guides her clients towards awakening their inherent inner-strength revealing their most centered selves. As an artist, she creates dance works that acknowledge the breadth of human experience and consciousness. Brynne continues to explore ways of communicating that which feels most important in life, recognizing the interconnectedness of body–mind–heart–spirit and the infinite possibilities of connection to others and to the greater world.
