YAMUNA BODY ROLLING
Saturday, November 7th, 1-3 pm with Sharon Sklar
Yamuna Body Rolling is essentially self-massage. With balls of various sizes and firmness, we used our body weight and small movements to release tension from our necks, backs, leg muscles and more. You will notice an immediate difference in alignment, feel looser and freer in your body, and improve mobility and flexibility.
Sunday, November 8th, 12 – 6pm with Karen Sevenoff
Perfectionism houses gifts and pain. It can be experienced as meanness or dissatisfaction and we may feel its burdensome, destructive qualities in our relationships, in our lives. In this full-day program, we will take a compassionate look at some of perfectionism’s roots and chains as well as its wise aspects. Bringing into the light the very good reasons we strive and strain will help us to more clearly see what perfectionism’s particular knots and habit patterns are made of and why they are ours to most kindly take responsibility for.
This program will include plenty of practice in the healing arts: easeful yoga, playful movement, sitting and walking meditation and the wonderfully supportive opportunity to share within a sympathetic and like-minded group. We will invite awareness practices that honor the body’s responses and cultivate spacious renewal and a way towards freedom. We are often reminded in the work of recovery, to aim for progress, not perfection, and that is our intent in this spirit-led day of discovery and support.
