A series of continuing education workshops for teachers and serious students of yoga. Each session will offer an opportunity to earn CEU’s (Continued Education Units) at a reasonable cost, with the added beneﬁt of keeping you close to home! The workshops themselves will bring high quality instruction, presented in a condensed, but easily digestible format. The teachers will be from our own dynamic yoga community, as well as teachers known to us regionally. The hope is that as teachers and students of yoga, we continue to grow and “learn more” together!
As We Are: Embracing Yoga, Meditation and Writing Practice 10 Minutes at a Time with Sara Lovelace and Valley Haggard
Saturday, June 6th 3:00-6:00 PM
We often believe we should be further along the path than we are, that we’ll never have enough time and discipline to catch up and that if we can’t do it perfectly we don’t want to do it at all. In this workshop, we will practice yoga, meditation and writing in doable but increasingly deep 10 minute increments, embracing our minds and bodies wherever they are as we show up on the mat and the page. All levels of experience in yoga, meditation and writing are welcome. Join us for a both practical and profound personal journey into the mind and body without critique or discussion, though we will provide time for processing our shared experience at the end.
Students will learn:
-Letting go of what you think a writing, yoga and meditation practice should look like
-Embracing where you are right now on the mat or the page
-Integrating practices that feed and nurture the body and the mind
Be sure to dress in comfortable clothing that you can move in. Please bring your own yoga mat, notebook, pen/pencil and water bottle though there will be extras on hand if you need them. Light snacks provided. We will take a 15 minute break halfway through the workshop.
