The Yoga of Improv Comedy
with Emily Barksdale
Sat August 26, 2017 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
We will begin with a short yoga practice to connect to our breath and bodies, lead by Emily Barksdale. This will be accessible to all. Bring comfy clothes and an open mind.
Laynie Gibson, of Pensacola's hilarious comedy troupe Improvable Cause, will guide us through exercises and group games that will encourage us to let go of self judgement and liberate ourselves to the present moment. Laynie has studied mindfulness at the University of West Florida and is going to show us how improv and mindfulness enhance our daily lives.
Whether you're a beginner or a veteran, you will find a warm and welcoming environment to play in. So join us as we free ourselves and have fun together!
Please be aware that improv is about letting go of self-censorship and inhibitions, so there may (likely) be adult themes and language.
