Movement, discussion and self-reflection at this year's Southern Bend Yoga Festival!
Join Madia Swicord in a dynamic exploration of compassion and courage through the lens of ancient yogic philosophy and techniqes.
What happens when we direct the powerful light of Awareness internally?
What does a yogic practice of compassion and courage look like? What are common roadblocks and how can we overcome them?
In this practice we’ll turn to the ancient philosophy and techniques of yoga to help kindle our mystical gifts for self-discovery. You will leave with intriguing and practical tools for crafting a kinder and more empowering yoga practice.
All levels of practitioners are welcome. All will have the opportunity to find their way into the pose that challenges them in a courageous and compassionate way.
This All-Levels workshop will consist of asana (physical practice), contemplative practices and discussion. Please bring a journal and writing implement.
