Tuesdays at 8am and Thursdays at 12pm (EST)
Theme | AWAKEN
We are simultaneously approaching one year of living with a pandemic and, spring. Spring is a season of awakening from winter, rising up from a season of darkness and cold. But today there is the added layer of the surviving life with a pandemic, and loss from COVID, if you experienced that.
Our current situation presents a lot of challenges. Being socially distant for one. Limited social engagement, if any. The change from our previously normal schedule to how our daily lives unfold now. There is a lot of stress and despair.
Being awake, in a spiritual sense, is about being in touch with your inner world. Doing practices that keep you feeling connected and good. Sometimes this can feel selfish with so much suffering in the world. But individual upliftment feeds collective upliftment. We have to take care of ourselves to better take care of those around us.
Part of being wholly awake means making sure you are sleeping enough. Getting in some fun or relaxation, when you can. These are not selfish, but in an ideal world they are directly related to healthy living. Join me on this journey of being AWAKE, or getting ourselves as close as possible.
All classes are livestreamed on Zoom on Tuesday mornings at 8am EST and Thursdays at 12pm EST, from March 2-25. I’ll be available 10 minutes before and after class for questions and to check-in. If you miss a practice, you'll have access to the playback for a week.
Practice will be a well rounded 60min vinyasa practice, with at least 10 min of slowing down and resting included at the end.
Suggested props: 2 blocks, a strap, 1-2 blankets (or towels), a bolster or firm pillows
The livestream class format is ideal for building a consistent practice within a supportive community. The regular class time will help with personal accountability and prioritizing your well-being.
Your enrollment in this month-long class package is a one time payment (not a monthly subscription).
