The New Year is a time we often use to very consciously choose. We find ourselves setting goals, we inquire and reach into our dreams; we create! Life is such a vast array of choice and creation, what are you choosing this year?
For me, within the myriad of choices, lies my commitment the deep communion that is my yoga practice. On the mat. Entering asana. Entering myself. Feeling my body. My breath. Opening, freeing limbs and spine. Movement. Awareness. Alive!
Will you join me in this?
This Sunday the 15th from 1-4pm at It’s All Yoga Studio we’ll be exploring a quality of spaciousness in body, heart, and mind. Creating space around our experiences frees us to choose outside of our quick reactions – we practice welcoming what is, even when it’s hard, uncomfortable, tight – we stay with it, a vulnerable and uncertain place, no doubt, but powerful in its capacity to shape the way we relate to our experience. In practice this weekend we’ll be inside the places that the body with scoliosis experiences as compression, tension and density; and we’ll bring to it breath, attention, patience and kindness. We’ll elicit the creative use of props and anatomical imagery to lengthen, strengthen, de-rotate, and align. The cost of this workshop is $45. I do hope to see you there!
