November 15, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm25USD
The Yoga of Homecoming – Live online workshop and fireside chat
“We are like migrating birds,
The pain of our departure
Is mitigated by the joy of our reunion.” – Anonymous
Come home to yourself in the most joyful and liberating way in this workshop focusing on supported back-bending poses. Backbends supported by props are energizing without being over-stimulating or taxing on the nervous system, allowing for profound release and opening.
We’ll explore key principles of upper body alignment and the deeper significance of freeing the chest, neck and shoulders. We’ll translate the building blocks of healthy shoulder alignment into a luxurious and deep asana practice followed by a cozy, fireside chat for Q&A and inspiring conversation in uplifting company.
Time: 10am – 12pm PST Please use this time converter to check your time.
Technology: We will use Zoom. You will receive the zoom link in your confirmation email + 30min before the workshop.
Future Access: We will make the practice available for you to revisit via Vimeo for 2 weeks, and we’ll send the link once it is ready. If you cannot make the time but would like to attend, please register to receive the video link.
