Incorporating ceremony into our life is a very beautiful way to honor ourself, loved ones, and other traditions that are important to us. In this experimental workshop, we will explore what different roles ceremony can and do play in our own lives. Forrest Yoga has a strong tradition of incorporating ceremony into our practice. We will take time to experience what some of these ceremonies are including: Calling in the Four Directions, Drumming & Singing, Forrest Yoga Asana (poses), and a Guided Meditation.
What to Expect in this Workshop:
•Discussion of what ceremony is and what it means to you
•Opportunity to drum and sing, then intent setting and moving into our Forrest Yoga asana practice, followed by a guided meditation
•Enter into Forrest Yoga ceremony through our asana practice. Connect and ride your breath to go deeper into the great mystery of who you are!
•Experience the Wiser Self Guided Meditation after our practice
•Use of props; blocks, straps, & rolled up mats to assist you in the pose
