Have you ever found yourself in a Yoga class, unable to follow the asana cues, and struggling to keep up with what is happening around you? You left class maybe feeling just a little frustrated and thinking Yoga is maybe not for you? Yoga classes tend to focus on the physical poses making one feel even less capable because if Yoga IS the poses and I flounder doing them... Yoga is not for me.
Asana practice (Yoga poses) is but 1 tool, in the medicine bag of Yoga, that supports your inner transformation.
Join me to learn just what Yoga is, ease out of feeling awkward in Yoga class, and plant seeds for your personal growth.
Join me for 3 hours of digging gently and deeply into what Yoga really is (yup, it ain't just about the poses), open yourself up to a practice that is whole health healing, and learn to navigate those maybe funky poses, playfully.
Create a calm confidence in your ability to use Yoga as a healing tool and feel comfy joining future Yoga classes. You will move into and out of poses with personal competence. You will learn to use poses as one channel to opening to the gift of Yoga in all areas of your health and healing.
Shelby and I are offering 2 separate classes to best accommodate your schedule. Sunday 5 to 8 PM and Wednesday 9 AM to Noon to open up learning space for 3-11 and midnight shift workers, retired individuals, stay at home moms, etc.
