Join us for this first time offering of both kundalini and yin yoga on Bowen! We will start with a kundalini yoga practice (guided by Atma Karam) to unravel the blocks and resistance in the body and mind that hold us back from sharing our light, living our purpose, and being at peace. We’ll build the nervous system, strengthen the intuition, and listen to the body map. We’ll use the nourishing power of yin yoga (guided by Harmony Shire Davison) to access deeper layers of fascia to find stillness after movement and reconnect the body and mind.
Join us for a truly restful night of sleep and healing while listening to the gong play live. The gong brings a deep sense of peace and wellbeing which will be amplified during the full moon. We transition to early morning kundalini yoga to nourish the soul and finish with a light breakfast. All are welcome, of any age and any experience, to this special event.
In this two-part workshop weekend, including a Friday night presentation ($15) and Saturday and Sunday full-day workshops ($200, including presentation), participants will explore how our body is shaped within by the imaginal body, inspired by the writings of Karl Jung on alchemy and archetypes. Through experiential exercises with image and movement, we will work with ideas from somatic psychology, touch and movement practices so that we can deepen our understanding of how we are held in the world, and how through the body we can listen to the emerging voice within.
