Let’s move into summer cultivating the soil of our hearts! Did you ever want to take a break from your life for a moment to just relax and notice what was happening for yourself? In this series, you will have the opportunity to be in a supportive environment and develop skills to cultivate inner compassion and kindness towards yourself. Pull the weeds of expectation and the inner critic. Nourish the soil of your body and perception with seeds of clarity & acceptance.

Together we will explore the yoga sutras to gain insight about our habits and learn practices that develop self-understanding and acceptance. Clarity is gained to help shift defeating behaviors and self-awareness is cultivated. We wake up and find our center.

The sutras say, as we develop this practice, we open to the light of intelligence and a steadiness is established within. Create a place where you find stability, to be at home in your core or center.
This series will focus on a variety of yoga sutra threads or gems of wisdom that enable us to gain insight, group discussion, meditation, breathing practices and a restorative asana practice.
Areas that will be covered in this book study, lecture & practice series:
*practice a revitalizing and nourishing asana practice to open space in your body
*develop breathing practices that relax the nervous system and still the mind
*learn yoga sutra slokas to strengthen your awareness and get planted in self-understanding, love and compassion for yourself & and others
* meditation practices that plant the seeds for kindness
