Come join host, Reed Ridgley, and special guest teacher (and fellow Modo Yogi), Whitney Glandon, in an exciting, FREE creative movement and contact improv class exclusively for the Modo Yoga Community.
In this two-hour workshop, we will explore creative movement through contact improv, and other theatre and movement related exercises, on stage at the Cherry Lane Theatre. No judgments, no pressure, no audience, and no experience or preparation necessary. Just bring an open mind, a desire to have fun, and the curiosity to move your yogic body in a new, theatrical way on a real Off-Broadway stage.
