Cultivate Self-Affection; take time to pause, to rest, to go inside and simply JUST BE.

This nourishing and healing practice helps to foster mindful awareness, and qualities of gentle acceptance; to become more comfortable with the discomfort we are all experiencing during this pandemic.

Each week will include a brief discussion, supportive practice and self-reflection, as we explore and integrate themes of compassion, connection, courage and wisdom.

We are all doing the best we can, as we navigate these stressful times of uncertainty and change. Let’s come together as a community, to build inner and outer safety, to show ourselves some loving kindness through yoga and rest.
