Does a fog of unworthiness shroud your spirit? Does courage elude you when the going gets tough? Do you see life as a timeline that is full of obligations and pressures? Do you struggle to be fully present in this moment?
This workshop, designed just for women, will guide you to:
* Learn safe ways to build overall body strength
* Integrate the dance of stability and freedom
* Channel emotional energy in healthy ways
* Increase self-confidence
* Tap into your creative source
* Appreciate the circular nature of life experiences on and off the mat
This well-balanced practice will blend the yin and the yang–flexibility and strength. Proper alignment will be emphasized in strength poses such as Caturanga-Dandasana (half plank), and Vasisthasana (side plank) and also in flexibility poses such as Setu-Bandhasana (bridge) and Urdhva-Dhanarasana (wheel). We will move through sun salutes and warrior postures with stira (steadiness) and sukham (ease). Backbends will be explored with a focus on stability. Hip openers will coax the emotional body to release. We will quiet ourselves with a restorative Savasana. Find what supports YOUR practice and frees your spirit. Step into courage. Bring what you discover into all circles of Life.
