Embodying Compassion: A Tara Restorative Event
w/ Rachel May
Sunday, June 10th
We live in a world of duality; and a constantly moving and changing one at that. Compassion is our capacity to give presence in the face of opposition, of limitation; and restorative yoga is the practice of centering back into effortlessness. This workshop will be a lovely opportunity to grant yourself the time to find ease and space in your being; which ultimately gives us the greater possibility of embodying fierce compassion. We will restore the pranas that are so depleted, come into some restorative asana and let props support us, and explore practices with the vehicle of consciousness that is Tara: protectress of the world and mother of compassion.
Introduction to Ayruveda: The Elemental Brilliance that is YOU!

Making Peace with Your Body and Food
w/ Dana Snook & Beth Knudson
Sunday, June 24th
Cost: $89 before 6/19. $99 after
Do you struggle to feel at peace with your body and/or food? Through this workshop, you will begin to explore the root causes of what may be interfering with you having a healthy relationship with food and your body. You will learn about the intuitive eating model to connect you back to your own hunger and satiety while using a gentle flow to pay attention to your relationship with your breath, movement, and sensations. You’ll roll on the floor with therapy balls, move joyfully, hear good music, and have fun. Our focus will be on kindness, acceptance, and forgiveness, concentrating on what’s inside and outside the boundary of our skin. This workshop is open to all levels and bodies.

What Our Previous Participants Have Said:
“I feel better about my eating habits. I learned that my body is telling me what it needs! Big Aha moment! I learned a lot, not just about food, but about myself. Thank you for providing safe space. I enjoyed the entire workshop!”
“I feel like it was helpful to hear other people’s stories were similar to mine. I’m not the only one who struggles with these things. It was eye opening to see that food doesn’t have to be stressful, but can be enjoyable.”
“My favorite parts [of the workshop] were the safe environment for all to share, the movement and listening to your body, and Beth and Dana sharing. It was a great start for intuitive eating and I feel like I can reach out to Beth and Dana for further support”
