Beyond the Mind, Into the Body
Time and Location:

Oct 22, 4:00 PM ZOOM

 

Workshop:

Hosted by Maytha Al Hassen. From its inception, western civilization culture privileged the mind as the dominant mechanism for experiencing the world, each other, and ourselves. Our ancient practices and wisdoms long taught us otherwise. Yoga is one of those practices that transcends that cerebral supremacy; instead, teaching us to integrate all parts of our being: mind, body, and spirit.

In this 60 minute-class will offer poses and sequences to get us in our bodies and connect with our souls. Through the guidance of somatic experiencing, we will also work on balancing our over-taxed nervous system, healing sympathetic nervous system dominance by activating our parasympathetic nervous system by exhaling deeply, easing some tightness, and opening our horizons. Open to all levels and entry points! Modifications will be offered.
