Breathwork Metamorphosis uses the breath and music as catalysts. It is designed to gently allow full sensory perception of our bodies releasing resistance and blocks with the breath. We ground it in the reality of the restrictions we all feel being human and in body form. This gives us an opportunity to express any and all emotions that unconsciously hold us back. When expressed, these emotions become the energy in motion that allows for movement in our lives. As we release the old, we invite the new. We then have the opportunity to take flight with visions and experiences that inspire expansion. Breathwork Metamorphosis is a transformative and powerful process for the breather’s evolutionary path. Life itself knows only expansion. Through the increase of higher vibration, we become complex because of all of the choices we are given to express. Yet, in this lies the need to simplify. This process delivers the complex and the simplicity. We provide a secure and loving environment for you to surrender to your inner wisdom and higher calling. We also offer continued support through your journey. Please bring a journal to record your experiences, and a water bottle. Breathwork Metamorphosis was birthed from a transmission of higher consciousness. This transmission is a communication of being in service on the planet fully embodied with our own unique creative expression and gifts. Register for Breathwork Metamorphosis here.
Will focus on celebrating the morning with a slow start and meditation, warming into sun salutations, and ending with a restorative pose and full Savasana.
Yoga For Belonging
Integrating trauma-informed meditation and gentle forms of asana practice (Hatha, Yin, Restorative) – Yoga for Belonging aims to hold space where all bodies are welcome. It is rooted in grounding practices that move towards resilience for those who are underserved or dealing with trauma and rejection, whether systematic or personal. The class is an ongoing conversation with it’s cohort about how to cultivate a sense of deeper belonging through yoga (in the world and one’s own life), while cultivating language and methods that prioritize inclusivity.
