Restorative Contact is a gentle, all levels practice composed of passive
contact poses designed to regenerate, replenish and reset the body and
mind. In the workshop we will work in pairs, guided through a mostly
floor-based sequence of touch and weight-sharing, using using various
surfaces of the body. Deep relaxation has been shown to help with anxiety,
insomnia, digestion, fertility and high blood pressure. The effects of
touch are far-reaching, including emotional, physical, and cognitive
wellbeing and improvement. No prior movement experience required.

*What should I wear?*
Comfortable, loose fitting clothing, without zippers and buttons is ideal
(i.e. sweatpants). Please wear a shirt that covers your midriff and chest.
No strong scents.

*Is this open to couples?*
Yes, you may partner with the person you come with, however you will be
encouraged to partner with other people and may switch partners in the
course of the workshop. Please know that this class is strictly non-sexual. *If
you would like to do specific work with your partner a private session is
recommended. *
