NEWS & UPDATES
Our theme for April is Growth (and Blossoming!)
“I think that the best kind of change, is the change that comes from the inside and begins it’s way out until it emerges on the outside; a change that is born underneath then continues and spreads until it has reached the surface. That’s a true change. A powerful change. And I have found that while we are emerging, changing into something glorious; it is actually us becoming who we really are. A water lily is born underneath the water, inside the muddy water at the bottom of the river or lake. And the water lily has always been a water lily for that whole time that it was sprouting out of the wet soil, reaching up through the dark water towards the sunlight, stretching and grasping for the surface; where it then buds and blooms on the outside in the sunshine. It doesn’t bud and bloom on the surface and then try to reach down below into the soil.” ~ JoyBell C

Active engagement in Social Justice is empowering and can be deeply healing, but without skillful attention it can quickly become overly taxing to our nervous systems, leading to fatigue and burnout. In this workshop we will explore how to utilize our Yoga Practice to become more connected and engaged, without becoming hyper-activated or overwhelmed.
Our next Childbirth Education Series begins Friday, May 5th!
This 3 week, comprehensive course, is for expectant parents giving birth at birth center, hospital, or home. Geared toward pregnant women (and their partners), with desire for an interactive learning experience, who want to understand birth and the many topics surrounding it. Discussion of pregnancy, labor & birth help mom find her own readiness and connection to body, and partners find a sense of confidence in how to support her.
