The Grace & The Beauty: A Lakshmi Restorative Workshop
Friday, May 24th
Lakshmi is often referenced as being the devi of beauty, wealth, abundance, and fortune. While all of these things could be said; her depth of wisdom is far beyond the reaches of the material realm. Lakshmi connects and reveals our abundance of inner wealth; our inherent radiance and beauty; and the day to day gratitude we can resonate with. She brings to light our fears in relation to self-worth, self-love, and self-care. Lakshmi’s grace calls us to value ourselves deeply and to recognize the value of every moment of our lives. In this restorative workshop, we will start with a sweet puja to Lakshmi; and a recitation of the Sri Suktam, a text of devotion to Lakshmi. We will explore pranayama meditations to feel directly the constant source of prana that is available to us. We will nestle into some luscious restorative postures; feeling the delight of being in this body. And we will end with yoga nidra; replenishing the energy we have lost so that we can continue to embody her grace and beauty.Register Now
