If you had to describe, with one word, your relationship with your body what would it be? If you had to describe how you relate to your mind, or heart...? Are the words that come up for you, words that feel nourishing or... not?

For many of us, we relate to ourselves (body, mind, and heart) with a harshness or dismissal that is unlike how we strive to treat our families, friends or even strangers. Wherever you are in your relationship with your body, cultivating a more intentional connection is a gift.

In this series, we will create an intentionally compassionate connection with our bodies. We will work with a balance of strengthening and stabilizing postures, and deep listening, accepting, and allowing the body to be as it is. We will strive to approach the body with kindness and care, utilizing somatic practices to invite more ease in the way we relate to our experience of being in the body.

Using meditation we will explore practices to bring a steadiness to the mind.  We will cultivate a relational awareness that is anchored to the body, anchored to the present moment experience.

We will invite an investigation of our energetic, emotional states through connection with the breath. We will utilize breath techniques (pranayama) to lift the energy where it needs lifting, to soothe the energy where it is overactive and to draw the energetic experience toward a greater sense of balance and ease.

Through movement, mindfulness, self compassion, and self Inquiry we will polish those habitual ways of relating to ourselves into something radiant!

This series is open to all levels of practitioners.  The asana will be simple and adaptive. All are welcome!

  • 6 in person sessions held at blosm studio: 6-7:30 PM March 28, April 4, April 25, May 2, May 23, May 30 (final class will include a 30 minute sound bath!)
  • 2 online integration sessions (over zoom): 6-7:30 pm April 11, May 9
  • 2 self practice weeks (with recorded practices in a content library): weeks of April 18 and May 16
