Play and connection drew me to acro yoga. The post-jam conversations while watching the sunset over Edmonton’s river valley made me feel like I found a community in which I belonged. Introducing authentic relating games to our acro yoga community has allowed me to connect deeper with the people that already filled me up.
I have started a non-profit organization called Play Connect Dance, which focuses on blending complementary modalities such as acro yoga, authentic relating games, and ecstatic dancing. This has been an outlet for exploring my fascination in the power of creating non-judgemental spaces to encourage vulnerable sharing and stepping out of the comfort zone.
