Thursday, October 18th -- Moving with Your Shadows
With Renk Kocturk
7:30pm - 9:30pm
There is so much that can get in the way of loving and accepting ourselves. This workshop will explore movement, writing, yoga therapy, and sharing circles. Taking steps towards fearlessly reconnecting with our authentic empowered selves. Strengthening the communication we have with our past, present, and future while aligning both light and darkness.
Starting with a heart opening therapeutic yoga flow to open our physical and emotional bodies. We will bring awareness into the body - the way we flow through life - and our breath. By holding space for creative movement, we will explore what our body needs to heal. Additionally, we incorporate free-writing exercises to tap into the subconscious for self-acceptance and guidance. The workshop will be filled with ambient instrumental music - helping us look deeper within ourselves - and upbeat music to release any tension and stress the body and mind are holding onto.
All movement is accepted, judgment is not. This is a place to truly listen and be heard.
Please come wearing something that you can move in, that also expresses your inner magic. Additionally, please bring a pen, something to write on, and something that you’d like to add to our altar during our workshop.
