Join Dr. Monea for a Courageous Conversation about BlPOC Fatigue. We will discuss what it is, what’s underneath, and what we can do about it. This is not training so come prepared to engage and be vulnerable. This Courageous Conversation will uplift BIPOC voices and lived experiences.
Sunday July 18, 3-5 PM
Sliding Scale Registration:
- Giving a boost: $50
- Just me: $35
- Accepting a boost: $20
This workshop is focused on helping our BIPOC sisters and brothers in the community navigate our reality. Our Non-BIPOC family is welcomed to listen, learn and support. But we must agree to keep the focus on BIPOC needs!
How do we muster up the energy to keep showing up for antiracism work (being on DEI committees, answering questions from White folx, leading healing spaces) when we are drained? Can yoga be our refuge? A soft place to land when we crave rejuvenation and peace?
Let’s talk about it!
Harness the Central Channel
Sunday, August 01, 2021
Recharge your "body battery" with Abby Dobbs!
Join Abby for this special yoga workshop focused on the central channel, or sushumna, the main energy channel that runs through the central axis of the body. She'll explore breathing practices (pranayama) and yoga poses (asana) designed to cleanse and open the wellspring of energy available within the central channel. You'll leave this workshop feeling centered and balanced, and with tools that you can take into any spiritual or movement practice.
How to Teach Yoga & Meditation to Survivors of Sexual Trauma
Sunday, August 15, 2021
Location: Lighthouse Yoga Center
Through this day-long online workshop for yoga teachers and interested students, you will learn how to teach yoga and meditation in a way that is safe and supportive for women who have experienced sexual assault and abuse.
In any given yoga class, if you're teaching more than three students, it's likely that there is a survivor in your class. So it's critical that we all learn how to teach in ways that facilitate healing rather than hinder it.
