At the heart of Jungle Love is willing participation. There are many ways to take the experience deeper, from going all out with our TRASH TO TREASURE fancy dress theme, where we challenge you to look fabulous without having to buy anything brand new, to being part of our flash mob or taking part in other workshops, to reducing your environmental impact or to being fully ready to get involved with whatever shenanigans that happen to organically unfold.
The most fundamental tool we have in our life is our body, and acroyoga is a great way to connect with it. This workshop will provide a great starting point for you to dabble in the practice, by learning to trust yourself, your partner and play.
