our nature workshop: riverside yoga newburyport 8/4 1pm-3pm
we all have an innate connection to nature and to each other. the practice of yoga describes this as our universal one-ness. throughout our daily lives we pick up external influences that cracks that connection. we start to believe that our individualness doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. we tend to get lost in the momentum of progress. do you let yourself stop and think? do you know yourself? are you aware of your daily habits? do you know that your daily choices matter? we live in an always-on culture where convenience is king, but is convenience really better? how do these choices impact our lives and the world around us? the answers to these questions take a lifetime but it is imperative, for ourselves and our environment, that we do the work.
in this workshop we will scratch the surface by using tools of yoga, meditation and journaling to get to know ourselves better. we will use movement and yoga, to root into the space and our bodies. we will then start a group discussion with targeted questions about our individual nature, our relationship with that nature and how that relates to the world around us. we will leave feeling more grounded, with a set of mindful tools that help brighten our relationship to self and help us all make a personal impact in our communities. students will be gifted a sustainable bundle, including samples from local shops such as Plum Island Soap Company, all to help kick-start a newly connected and sustainable life.
