Happy Hips & Blissful Belly: A Chakra Workshop
On Sunday, February 13th (in time for Valentine's Day), from 3 to 5 PM, I will be offering a workshop at Dharma Yoga, 722 West 8th Street, Erie, Pennsylvania. I will also be teaching my usual 6 to 7:15 PM Kundalini Yoga and Movement afterward so you could come for one and stay for the other! A full chakra evening of radical self-care and love!
You can either email me (information below) or go to the Facebook events page to reserve a spot. Here is a description of the workshop:
A flat belly and small hips are what we are taught constitutes “beauty.” Women go to great lengths to attain this ideal or suffer everything from depression and anxiety to eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder when they are unable or simply do not meet the ideal.
Enough is enough!
We are all built differently and we are all beautiful in our differences! Our bodies possess an intelligence that culture has attempted to squash. There are physiological reasons, for example, why we gain belly fat as we age, but we are never told these things.
Whether you think you are too big or too small or too much or not enough, this workshop is designed to help you restructure the stories around your belly and hip area so that they are inspiring and constructive rather than defeating and destructive.
Corresponding to this physical area is a chakra area -- your creativity, self-expression, groundedness, sense of belonging, feelings of safety, will and determination all reside here -- and here is where most of us are stuck.
This workshop will explore your relationship to your hips and belly through story telling, movement, yoga, chant, breath work, and community building.
The cost of this workshop is $20 and there are limited spaces so reserve yours now!
