Palo Alto, CA

Welcome to The Shabby Suitcase - a blog documenting the creative outlets and general wanderings of a nomadic twenty-something. 


The latest adventure.


Palo Alto with Bri and Blake

Marissa Conway

My sister and her boyfriend came to visit for the week, so I decided to take advantage of their yogic talents and roped them into a photoshoot. Together they practice acro yoga - a fluid and beautiful form of partner yoga.  What struck me most about this particular brand of yoga is the high level of communication involved.  Throughout their sequences, Bri and Blake were constantly talking - communicating how to better support and balance with one another.  It was so lovely to witness two kindred souls in their element - I'm quite a lucky sister.
