Listening to the Body: Yoga, Mindfulness, and Self-Compassion
Limited Capacity seats available



Constant multi-sensory overload and the pressure to produce, can add chronic stress, even trauma, to everyday life. We suffer from this form of daily trauma, and yet often feel compelled to push ourselves harder. Often, our body pays the price as much as our mind and emotions. In this workshop, we'll briefly explore the compelling science behind self-compassion, and why it's more effective than self-esteem. Drawing upon the traditions of yoga, mindfulness, and contemplative studies, we'll experience several practical, body-based methods of working with self-compassion that can be integrated into any yoga class or somatic meditation practice.

Hip Opening & Meditation for Inner Peace
Limited Capacity seats available

The hips can be a major obstacle to our ability to be at peace in our bodies, however the hips can also be one of the more resistant areas of the body to work with and for many of us we spend much of our yoga practice attempting to “open the hips.” We have an idea of what we think our hips should be like and we continue to stretch this area hoping that one day it will pay off and even if it does we continue to dig deeper and deeper. But there is one critical internal system often overlooked that is essential for releasing & balancing this area that has little to do with the poses or our alignment. We’ll look at how to tap into this to work more deeply through the layers that can restrict us in order to prepare out bodies for meditation. Hip opening can potentially affect the back, neck, legs and even shoulders as its place in the center of our body intimately affects everything else but more importantly it’s a large obstacle to both meditation and our sense of peace in our body. This will be an insightful & experiential class with a brief lecture at the start followed by a slow flow and some static postures to assist this hip opening class concluding with a short meditation at the end to help you tap into this experience of inner peace. This is a gentle flow class open to all levels with some vinyasa experience.
