"Good for the body is the work of the body,
good for the soul the work of the soul,
and good for either the work of the other."
-Henry David Thoreau
I love teaching. It's in my genes (my mom was a teacher too) and it's genuinely a passion of mine. Plus, I believe that being around other people who are energized about what they do inspires each us to seek a little deeper for that same quality within. Currently, I've been invited to become a beta teacher for online workshops on a fabulous new website called PowHow before it's officially launched into the world wide web!
It's a bit distinct from YouTube or other yogic websites that tout streaming classed and videos on-demand—PowHow enables you to take the class LIVE and interact directly with the teacher and fellow students. This is a perfect place to launch two workshops that I've been planning for quite some time:
$30, 9-11am PST on Saturday, May 12
Get your creative juices flowing with yoga and flash fiction exercises! Designed to inspire creativity through physical and intellectual movement, these two-hour workshops begin with 60 minutes of Vinyasa yoga, followed by a flash-fiction prompt, then a brief guided meditation and an open space to begin crafting words onto paper. After the body-mind exercise, there will be time for workshop participants to interact with one another and share what they've written, toss around ideas, and marinate in the worldwide connection of good ideas and supportive individuals. It's perfect for aspiring and established writers to move thoughts from the inside out in productive ways. And, it's also a wonderful opportunity for anyone looking to use writing as an outward expression of an inward contemplative and healing practice.
Limited space available to ensure that everyone who attends gets the most out of each workshop!
$28, 6-7.45pm PST on Wednesday, May 16
As someone who's recovered from an eating disorder, I know firsthand what it's like to struggle and to suffer. It's a horrible and dark place to be, and often it feels like there is no light at the end of the tunnel. This is a special workshop designed especially for those who are in eating disorder and body dysmorphia recovery, as a means to help every individual reconnect to the joy within. Learn how to be strong and free, to take one step closer on the path towards loving ourselves unconditionally. I believe that for as long as we are breathing, there is a divine warrior within us always championing for our best selves — we are courageous, we are brave, and we can be free to be happy.
Join me for a very limited space workshop that begins with guided breathwork to make space in our minds, sweet movement to compassionately understand our bodies, and gentle energy healing techniques to learn what genuine, unconditional self-love is all about.
There is one free guided meditation class and two free yoga classes for the month of May, so that you can get a sample of what an online class is like and see if it's a good fit for you. Book your seat today as spots for these classes are going quickly.
I look forward to seeing you online and sharing what's very near and dear to my heart. :)
Please let me know if there are other times and dates that you would prefer. I'm happy to do my best based on what most people would like!
