Yogic Practices for Life

Do you want to be more connected to who you really are? Do you want to feel more connected to the people around you?

Quest for the Authentic Self is an experiential and educational immersion into living yoga. Utilizing the principles of yoga on and off the mat, we will befriend the obstacles that block us from being fully alive. By being present with them in loving kindness, we will practice cultivating strategies and right actions to realign our brain, our bodies and our behavior. Each of us will leave the workshop with a plan for mindful living, transferring the inspiration and insight from the program into practicality and sustainable practice.

During the program we will explore:

  • Mindful presence
  • Prayer as practice
  • Conscious communication
  • Insight journaling
  • Movement as metaphor
  • Yoga on the mat
  • Guided meditation
  • Yoga nidra

This program is open to everyone, at all stages of practice. The only prerequisite is the desire to live more fully, to act more skillfully, and to bestow upon ourselves the gift of change and the power of choice. Please join us!
