Perfectionism and Control – Part I – Neck, Shoulders and Hips : 40 €
Perfectionism creates the feeling of never being good enough and of having to work harder and harder to become flawless. Ultimately the underlying belief is that we are not worthy and don’t deserve to be loved if we are not faultless. The true and authentic self is rejected, because it is “imperfect”. An ideal is created that we strive after, even though it does not exist. This creates a constant frustration and a relentless need to achieve. What would happen if we could truly accept ourselves the way we are instead of needing to be perfect? How would it feel in our bodies, if we treat ourselves in a more loving way? The workshop creates space for this question without hoping for perfect and absolute solutions or answers. The workshop explores the theme by using the four directions, chanting and a deep hip and shoulder/neck releasing class.
April 23 – Sat: 2:30 – 4:30 pm
Perfectionism and Control – Part II : 30 €
The afternoon includes some light asana and process work to feel deeper into the authentic self and create room where self acceptance might happen. We will delve deeper into the questions of what kinds of ideals we set ourselves, where did our ideas of these ideals originate from and what might we need to do to let go of these ideals and be able to accept who we are, where we are right now. This includes partner work, talking circle, and journaling.
This workshop is only open to those that also register for the morning workshop.
April 24 – Sun : 10:00 – 1:00 pm
Learning to Be with WHAT IS : 40 €
How would life be different if we can learn to be with WHAT IS – using our felt experience in our bodies and our breath to surf through WHAT IS with radical acceptance? This workshop will provide a very grounding practice with therapeutic backbends and a standing pose series, to integrate and digest the experiences from Saturday. This workshop will work with building moment-to-moment awareness within the body and using the breath to skillfully stay grounded in the experience, not seeking to change or alter the experience, but opening up and welcoming whatever comes up. This workshop will include setting the intent using the four directions, chanting and a grounding asana practice.
