Mindfulness & Movement: Momentum to Getting Unstuck (PURE Yoga)
June 26, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$35 - $40
In this workshop, learn how to break old habits and create healthier ones over time. Experience embodied mindfulness and tailored meditation tools to help anchor and transform your perspective. You’ll gain new awareness about your default patterns — the ones that weigh on you –the ones that keep you from moving forward. By learning how to listen to and decode your body’s signals, you’ll have an opportunity to release old patterns and create new healthy ways of moving through your life. There will be movement, mindfulness meditations, body scanning techniques and journaling included in the workshop.
You’ll leave this workshop with a concrete plan to step into your life, off of the mat, in new ways while feeling more confident, free and in control of your inner world, your body and your mind.
