Saturday Series: Flow Yoga for Freedom and Space
Workshop w/ Kim Romanik
Saturday 26th October, 2-4pm
What is flow and what does it feel like in the body? How can we access it through movement?
This workshop will use creative sequencing of flow yoga and fluid movement to create the feeling of freedom and space within the physical and subtle body.
Why do you move? What feels good in your body? What movements do you enjoy? Explore these questions and more in a 2 hour workshop of yoga, breath and movement.
You will move intuitively, listening to your body, breaking “rules” in the conditioned mind, to move with more ease, freedom and joy. You will practice navigating areas of restriction both in body and mind, that cause barriers, and learn how to move through and beyond them.
Embrace pleasure, explore creativity.
