The MERJ Acroyoga event offers a very casual and relaxing group experience. If you love yoga, you’ll love doing it with a partner. We had a blast at our first group Acroyoga session in November. Check out the photos here.
This event is FREE for singles who sign up as NEW MERJ members. Just sign up to RSVP @ www.merj.us!
Couples are $25 for two tickets. Purchase tickets here>
About the Instructor:
Sandhi Ferreira has been practicing Yoga for the past 16 years and aerial acrobatics for the past 6 years. She is an advanced certified Jivamukti Yoga teacher as well as a professional aerial dancer. She experienced her first Partner Yoga workshop in 1998 and then met her Acroyoga family in 2001. What attracted her most to Acroyoga is the depth of supported playfulness that the practice offers. Through this practice, she has discovered the perfect way to share her love of the healing strength of both yoga and acrobatics.
DJ EKO is a SF Bay transplant and has DJ’ed at lots of yoga parties and dance music events.
What is AcroYoga? It is a physical practice which blends elements of yoga, acrobatics and the healing arts. These three ancient practices form the foundation of a practice that cultivates trust, connection and playfulness between partners.
One of my favorite sites (that miraculously still believes in legitimate journalism) Salon.com, recently wrote a funny article called “The World’s Worst Online Daters” about annoyed singles documenting the worst of the worst from the online dating scene through various blogs and social media. Anti-dates & the Annals of online dating are putting some pretty sad excuses for men on blast. Maybe they’ll get word that their half-ass attempts at attracting someone are providing some quality entertainment to the rest of the world. You got to wonder if they will learn from this and try a tiny bit harder next time.
The Salon article may be bad press for OK Cupid, but they could also use it as free market research. The tumblr blog called “Its not OK, OK Cupid“, asks users to submit their horror stories - ”I know I’m not the only one getting wack messages from people on OkCupid. Send me yours too, or, as one douche canoe put it - I’ll show you mine if you show me yours.”. You also have to wonder if OK Cupid is going to start blocking certain people, I mean, that might help their situation. Though I’m not sure if they really care about their rep at this point. The few weeks I was on OK Cupid I racked up at least 3 horror stories. It was by far, one of the biggest wastes of my time, next to my junior high “Texas History” class. (Remember the Alamo!)
Here at MERJ, we are tasked with creating a tool for a community of singles tired of this kind of worthless cheeseball crap. I’m here to remind you, don’t give up, there is always hope. For those who have outgrown the bar scene and are really looking for a positive experience, try activity based dating. Its definitely something different. Although we are just getting started, through word of mouth and fun events, and a little bit of TLC we can build a community that connects passionate people.
