Having difficult emotions is part of life. Feelings of anger, frustration, sadness and anxiety are normal. What causes problems is when our emotions interfere with day to day life. Yoga provides a way to be present to what we are feeling in the moment without getting stuck there. This class will offer a hatha yoga practice with practical tools for accepting how we are feeling in any given moment and how to move through it with grace and resiliency. Self-soothing practices and ancient yogic techniques that work in our modern times will be shared. All levels of experience are welcome and encouraged to come with an open heart and a notebook.
Yoga isn’t just about the body it’s about the being.
This course will be offered on Tuesdays, 5:30 – 6:45pm from February 26th to April 2nd.
**In case of inclement weather, the makeup date is Tuesday, April 9th.**
