Illuminating Your Being
A series with Denise
The koshas map the five layers of our being, from the physical body and breath to the subtlest movements of mind. They can either distract us from our inherent nature of love and wisdom or be a doorway to joy and freedom.
In this 5-week series, we'll use asana and meditation to peel apart each kosha like layers of an onion to develop a felt-sense of their qualities in the body and use this discovered knowledge to untether the mind and reveal the heart.
Wednesdays, May 3rd-31st, 2017

There will be an emphasis on alignment, safety, and rehabilitation of the body, while holding a space for devotion, self inquiry and mindfulness.

Yin Yoga: Moving into Stillness
A workshop with Iva Drtina-Hall
Discover a world of Yoga that focuses on balancing the body, mind and spirit. The most important part of the whole yoga process, is how it relates to your life. Namely, how to be more healthy, have a balanced physical, mental and emotional state of being and how it has an effect on the perceptions of one's spiritual growth. All these combine to modify lifestyles to achieve an intelligent state of being. By nourishing a yin attitude of compassionate acceptance, we allow the wisdom of our bodies to be heard.
