Emanation: A Practice from Your Center
Limited Capacity filling up

Your core is your fortress and your stronghold, yet many of us have such a hard time connecting to this place within the body. If you’ve ever felt insecure about your mid-section, you’re not alone. Forging deep and true strength in this area has nothing to do with building six-pack abs, and everything to do with finding balance and stability within challenge. This workshop focuses on circumferential stability, engaging not only the anterior chamber of the body, but also the lateral side body and the posterior chamber as well. You’ll find ways to embrace and move from your center with confidence.

Together, let’s become Warriors of Love in order to bring peace and love to all those in need. Come prepared to sweat and sing and wake up what’s long been forgotten!

The Radical Act of Self Care
Limited Capacity seats available

In yoga, the "self" truly is a reflection of everyone that we interact with; there is no separation and we are inextricably linked. The current cultural context is one that is greatly imbalanced, causing dysfunction, separation, isolation, trauma and harm individually and collectively. Self-Care is a radical act of resistance.It is time for us to consider how we want to more intentionally care for ourselves and others. Through the practice of yoga, this workshop will focus on the relationship that you have with yourself and how that informs your relationships with others. In this workshop we will explore what it means to make space to practice self-care and what it means to care for the collective good. We will set intentions focused on living into the highest versions of ourselves, and make space to heal our hearts so that we can more clearly see our connection with others.
