Teachings On Compassion & Surrender

Breath, Movement & Stillness:  a yoga & meditation workshop – 2 hours

  • Feel like you’re speeding through your life? Come, catch up with yourself. Slow down and tune in.

Many of us make the mistake of thinking happiness comes through external achievement: the right job, perfect relationship, external approval and status. This workshop invites you to grow curious about your assumptions by slowing down enough to look more closely… to address physical and mental tensions by teaching you how to stay in the present moment regardless of emotions, thoughts, or physical discomfort that come up. This class will utilize breath-based awareness in both yogic movement (gentle to moderate) and watchful stillness; this will deepen your meditation practice, increase mental and emotional steadiness, and mark the path toward true contentment. All levels of yoga and meditation experience are welcome.

Envisioning Your Life:  a yoga, meditation & creativity workshop – 3.5 hours

  • Feel like you can’t see the forest for the trees? Are you craving a way to get back in touch with who know yourself and want to be?

A vision board is an illustrated, free-style road map meant to represent your dreams and desires and sets the energy in motion for you to attract them into your life. In this workshop, we shift into a creative mindset through yoga, meditation, breath and visualization to joyfully create your vision board. Come with a light heart, a curious mind and an excitement for your creative future! All levels of yoga, meditation, and artistic ability are welcome.

Yoga Nidra:  learn transformative relaxation from the ancients – 2 hours

 

Yoga Nidra, or ‘the sleep of yogis,’ a guided meditation, has been used for millennia to achieve alert relaxation and heightened awareness of the inner life. The practice of engaging non-judgmental presence while compassionately looking within grants you the power to transform disturbances in your physical, emotional and mental fields. This form of self care encourages healing at the deepest levels, fostering acceptance, freedom from outmoded beliefs, recognition and realization, and unmitigated joy. No experience is necessary.

This Workshop:

  • Includes a brief self-reflective writing exercise
  • Yoga postures to ease the body
  • A 45-minute Yoga Nidra practice

Trancendent Yoga Dance:  a community odyssey of freestyle movement inspired by groove-driven music – 2 hours

In the tradition of tribal culture where communities come together for healing and ceremony, Trancendent Yoga Dance takes you on a journey where dance is prayer and music is celebration. Enter into a respite from intellectual thought through this sensual guided exploration of breath and organic, creative movement. Open to your unique expression from your most fundamental human yearning for joy and connection, allowing the rhythm of ritual to draw you into an egoless state of exultation. This stirring voyage is led to the beat of the best trance music.  Dance experience is unnecessary!

This Workshop:

  • Connects you with shared intention and authentic physical expression
  • Grants you permission to experience pure, unadulterated joy
  • Releases pent-up emotion and gives way to new understanding
