Yoga and Creativity for Emotional Resilience

with Swami Vidyananda, E-RYT 500, C-IAYT and Shanti Norris, C-IAYT

May 3 - 7, 2019

Program is fully booked

Harness the healing power of Yoga and creativity to establish emotional stability and resilience during this weekend workshop. Yoga can help you lead a happier, more cheerful life. If negative thoughts and feelings keep you from happiness, Integral Yoga has practices to deeply transform and balance the emotions.

In this workshop you will explore:

  • The psychological impact of Yoga asana (posture) practice
  • Breathing practices to increase day-to-day coping skills
  • The healing power of art and creativity to access and process emotions
  • Grounding meditation for emotional balance
  • How to take Yoga off the mat and into daily life to develop healthy emotions

Our goal is to integrate the mind and heart so we feel peaceful always. Join us for a Yoga and Creativity workshop to collectively work toward this goal.

This is a great workshop for Yoga teachers as well as students.
