5-Day Yoga Journey - To Be Genuine
- 6:30 a.m. to 7:30a.m. -
- All Ages
Early morning yoga to start your day every day for 5 days in a row. Having had a life-changing experience at my Immersion retreat to become certified as a yoga teacher, where we co-created a safe space that fostered deep transformation, I intend to co-create that same sort of space in these 5-Day Yoga Journeys. We share the universal spiritual principles of yoga and how they apply to our modern lives and then take our shared intentions and insights into an asana practice.
To Be Genuine - 5-Day Yoga Journey - December 6-10, 6:30AM-7:30AM, the Studio at Illuminations, Cherry Building
What does it mean to be Genuine? The word "genuine" means real, authentic. It brings to mind someone without pretenses, without subterfuge or hidden agendas.
How often to bring up veils of protection that hide our genuine selves? How often do we censor what we tell people (or share on social media) so that we present a picture of a happy person?
What if, in our fear of showing our genuine selves, we're depriving the world of our raw, authentic beauty, even if it's difficult to show? I invite you to show up genuinely, in a safe, judgement free space. I invite you to show up because this is how I’m going to show up - warts, weaknesses, strengths and gifts and all.
In this 5-Day Yoga Journey, we will share a practice that includes contemplation, meditation, breathing exercises, mantras, and asana (vinyasa, power, yin). An early morning session, 5 days in a row, designed to create a retreat-like atmosphere. A 5 day commitment to help foster growth and healing.
