Alchemy of the Heart: Practicing Gratitude will guide you in exploring the powerful practice of mindful appreciation, and how such a practice can open you to a life of grace.

In this workshop we will use yoga as a mechanism to explore the transformative emotion of gratitude while utilizing deep hip releases to detoxify the mind/body of negative emotions. We will also explore inversions to tap into our spirits’ sense of playfulness, and discover heart opening backbends to feel where joy and gratitude reside in our bodies.

At the end of this workshop, you will have a platform on which to explore this sense of gratitude in your daily life, helping you to connect into the abundance that is available to you in your relationships, and in the world.

Please bring:

  • your yoga mat
  • a hand towel
  • journal(paper)
  • pencil

All levels are welcome; having sun salutation experience will be helpful.

This course is approved by Yoga Alliance for 2.5 hours of Continuing Education
