@ Wake Up Yoga South!
Taught by: Felicia Graham Comisar

Join us for a 3 hour workshop where you will lean into the uncomfortable and then melt into the sweet. Just like life, this workshop will provide you with the chance to acknowledge what is uncomfortable, scary or stuck. The Yoga Sutras tell us that everything that happens is for our enjoyment or enlightenment. Some things will be easier for your joy and some will be more challenging to awaken your experience. You can choose to then soften or simply be with still with what is. Yin places the body in shapes that open up the connective tissue, that remind us that there is sweetness in being open and honest, and that pain is not a punishment. Finding your way in a practice without judgements can be an experience that connects you with your sweet heart and your physical strength. It takes strength to be still with discomfort and you might find you have more of that than you knew. From there you will add bolsters and create shapes to cradle the body. The tension of stress hides out in the body. Like a frightened kitten it requires gentleness and patience to reveal itself. These poses invite the breath to deepen as well as expand. This balance to all we do can reveal to you the depths of ease available to you when you release and relax with what you discover. This isn’t a retreat, a moving away from; rather it is a treat, a chance to dive in. It is an opportunity to remind yourself that you have so much wisdom and power to bring about the changes you yearn for in your body, heart and mind. It gently opens you up to the possibility that right here, right now, we have everything we need to be awake and alive. This workshop is appropriate for all bodies. No previous experience with yoga is needed. Bring your Self, comfortable clothes, and your favorite large scarf or light blanket.
