Healing Breath

Healing Breath

Healing breath is taught as a tool to bridge the gap between body and mind, thus becoming whole again. As students use healing breath to become more intimate with themselves they are able to free themselves of habitual holding.

Embodied Meditation

Embodied Meditation

Realizing ourselves as wholeness, and feeling our essence is the primary focus of the embodiment exercises. As we let ourselves integrate and release from the holding in both the mind and body we feel and sense ourselves as whole beings. We come home again. Embodied meditation is integrated into all parts of the practice, as well as in the seated meditations.

This Restorative Yoga and Zen workshop will focus on how to cultivate gratitude in both body and mind. Restorative Yoga supports the body in releasing held tensions specific to shoulders, neck, and around the heart space. Zen teachings on the practice of gratitude turn the mind toward joy and freedom, enabling us to be fully available to meet whatever arises with a sense of greater ease.

Here’s what students are saying:

“Lisa: A delightful morning on Saturday…thank you for your skillful leadership.
I had a wonderful “insight” while there”
“For the first time in your embodiment workshop my mind was quiet! After all these years of Yoga and Meditation I had never experienced that. The embodiment meditations really gave the ah ha I had been looking for. Thanks, Lisa.”
