Strong Body, Peaceful Mind
Sunday, Sept 27, 2020 10am – 1pm Pacific Time
It takes courage and faith to turn inward when the world so relentlessly beckons us with fear and disruption. Seated in each of us is an eternal well of peace and stillness, strength and truth. This workshop is designed through practice and contemplation to guide us to that inner sanctuary. The practices overcome our inertia, awaken us to our own depth of strength and peace, and guide us through difficult or easy times. As we reclaim our strength and find our stability, we learn to take that peaceful flow of awareness into the world, no matter the current condition outside ourselves. This workshop of practice and reflection will be a strong foundation to navigate and love this new world that is presenting itself. We will use specific asana, pranayama and meditation practices to directly address the awakening of peace and strength in us.
Commit some time to yourself instill these long-lasting benefits in your body, mind and heart.
The Chakras: Beauty Unbound
Nov 8, 2020 10am-1pm Pacific Time
The energy that supports you, that empowers your passion, that informs your truth, and that gives you your voice in the world comes from deep within in streams that converge in vortexes we call chakras. These nadis (waves, rivers) are the subtle underlying scaffolding that your body forms around. When the flow is healthy and strong, your life reflects this graceful foundation. And where these streams converge at points throughout the body, there is an opportunity for increased awareness of and access to your most sacred self.
Unfortunately, these rivers often become dammed, polluted or dissipated, due to different circumstances, attitudes, and habits that we have adopted towards ourselves and perhaps even life itself. With compassionate awareness we can begin to clear and strengthen ourselves so that these internal rivers and vortexes can give us more support, a greater understanding our of internal and external life, and increase our ability to be compassionate, kind, resilient and courageous.
We will use asana, pranayama, meditation and a yogic understanding of life to help us access these chakras within, loosen the grip of negativity, and allow our inherent beauty to reveal itself.
Cost: $75 through October 25, $85 after
