MOVE INTO KINDNESS
unravel patterns of self-criticism and increase your resilience
yoga | self-compassion practices | journaling
When you cultivate more compassionate ways to relate to yourself, you increase your resilience - your ability to meet oncoming demands in your life in an optimal way.
This will be a fun and interactive workshop in which you will be immersed in practices to cultivate self-compassion.
Come bask in a series of practices that will leave you feeling reinvigorated with new possibilities for kindness in your everyday.
Together, we will explore ways in which we can be kinder to ourselves on and off the mat:
We will open with a compassionate yoga practice and enjoy a deeply relaxing shavasana featuring a guided loving kindness meditation
We will transition into discussion about the science behind mindful self-compassion to understand how it can help us learn to love and accept ourselves more fully and its positive implications for our health
Dive deeper into the body with mindful self-compassion practices
Through reflection (maybe even some journaling!) and group discussion you’ll be challenged to uncover unkind words lurking in your mind that are holding you back
You will take what you experienced in the body and combine it with what you uncovered in your mind to help you make sense of how you can cultivate a kinder inner dialogue
Take away: You will have the opportunity to author your very own self-compassion phrase - to keep with you as daily inspiration to treat yourself with kindness.
Be ready to unwind, go easy on yourself and connect with other compassionate beings.
Bring a journal, pen, and an open heart.
Suitable for all levels.
“The research suggests that giving ourselves a break and accepting our imperfections may be the first step toward better health. People who score high on tests of self-compassion have less depression and anxiety, and tend to be happier and more optimistic.”
