Yoga and Self-Acceptance
In this class, we will practice self-acceptance: body, mind & soul. By changing our perception of our faults or limitations from one of resistance to open-hearted acceptance, we are able to free ourselves from unnecessary suffering. If we choose to bow in gratitude to our short-comings, we may find the lessons they teach us to lead to wisdom and joy.
This class entails a 5-minute talk, 5-minute meditation, and a Vinyasa Flow based on the Surya Namaskar C series. All levels welcome!
