Yoga and Meditation

Exploring Compassion through Mind, Body & Breath: Yoga is much more than physical postures. It is the strengthening and stretching of mind, body & breath that gives yoga healing properties, and helps us develop compassion for self and for all beings.

We will explore Mind (meditation), Body (asana), and Breath (pranayama)--breath techniques, movement sequences that strengthen and stretch both body and mind, and meditation practices to serve you on and off the mat. As we develop greater presence, our capacity for compassion grows.

This in person class supports both the beginner and the advanced practitioner looking for a more mindfully-paced class. Alternatives and modifications will be offered. Taught by Rebecca Leary.

Mindful Self-Compassion
Spend an hour learning how to support yourself when you are stressed, struggle or like you have failed.  Most of us are familiar with our inner critic, can we also connect with an inner caring coach?   Learn the research about self-compassion, discuss the misperceptions about it and try it out with guidance.  Hannah Hawkins-Esther LCSW is a certified Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher and is happy to share this life-enhancing practice.

Workshop: Creating a Culture of Compassion

We care for the things we value and we all inherently are worthy of a fulfilling life. Clearly defining and asserting one’s Values and Boundaries affirms an individual's autonomy and agency. In this workshop, participants will create artistic representations of popular culture and how it informs their behaviors. Then we will envision what it will take to foster compassion within our everyday lives.

Day 1 | Why Compassion For Self?

It Starts With Being Aware

When we develop our awareness of ourselves and what is going on around us, we are able to practice presence. This honors us. This honors our body. It slows us down. It allows us to let go of stress and the worries of life. This is compassion for self.  Take a yoga class or a walk in nature and experience this awareness.

Online or in person throughout Atlanta

Practice Mindfulness

When we practice mindfulness we get quiet and we listen. We listen to our hearts, our dreams, and we even listen to our silences.  Being mindful and listening helps us be more calm. This is how we prioritize ourselves. This is self compassion.  Join us for one of the class offerings and experience mindfulness.

As long as we have breath, we live...

 

Do you remember to pause, to take deep breaths, to resume being present? Take one of our offerings online or in person to enjoy the full benefits of compassion for your self. If you do not practice self compassion, how can you be compassionate to others?

The prerequisite to compassion for others is self compassion. Practice this with us today throughout Atlanta.
