|Family Yoga: Breathing, Being, and Belonging in the Heart & Home (all ages)||(60 min) In the rush and dash world we live in, too often it’s our meaningful family time that gets compromised. In this 1-hour session, you’ll have time to explore space, to reconnect with the people you love the most, and to re-inspire and re-invigorate your family experience by breathing together, moving and playing together, and by celebrating the joy of simply being together in your self's purest, most deeply conscious state. In our time, we'll play games and practice partner and small group poses that build teamwork and strengthen the bonds of kinship that lead to greater familial awareness of the energetic exchange within relationship dynamics. And after the fun journey of yoga play, we'll transition into the magic of yoga nidra, the ancient art of mystical sleep, where participants will have a chance to develop greater personal awareness of the body, breath, thoughts, feelings and emotions that manifest a safe, trauma & resilience-informed space within the home. Open and accessible to all family shapes and sizes.
