Yoga for Abundant Bodies Special Event
with Shri Devi Diehl
120.00 minutes
$35.00
Sliding Scale $20-45 No one turned away for lack of funds (NOTA) Yoga for Abundant Bodies is a workshop specifically designed for practitioners of larger shapes and sizes. For some, there is a perception that their size and ability prevent them from doing yoga or they feel they’re not necessarily welcomed in other classes. Where it’s easy to say this isn’t the case, Shri Devi knows this firsthand and holds space for YAB to be the compassionate place for your practice to grow without judgment. With the use of props (blankets, bolsters, yoga straps, and blocks), you are invited to discover creative ways to enjoy this practice at your own pace. Yoga is not about working against your natural body.Instead, through mindful movements, meditation and collaborative effort, this workshop is designed to be fun and creative, giving you an opportunity to expand your practice of self-care.
