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 to step back from the business of life and observe yourself, taking time for introspection. Allowing your thoughts/feelings to be witnessed and acknowledged without judgment?
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.
