We often have great intentions of welcoming positive change into our lives, yet we’re not sure which tools can help us translate those intentions into action. The Intention behind Rituals Austin is to provide you with tools to assist in your spiritual journey. And we’re taking it one step deeper with our new Rituals Embodied workshop series, which will offer you guided support from some of our favorite healers and practitioners.
Our inaugural 4-part series will focus on the following inquiry: How we can explore what support means for us so that we are able to expand our capacity to receive? We’ll begin each session with the somatic experience of yin yoga to ground us. Then we’ll open up the circle for a short lesson and discussion, before ending the session with a longer yin yoga practice.
Yin yoga is a slow, quiet, and receptive practice that invites the practitioner to encounter the fullness of their human experience. Poses are done on the floor, and held for a long period of time, nourishing the joint, bones, and connective tissues. The effect is grounding, healing, illuminating. The practices offered are suitable to every body. No previous experience is necessary.
Each session will include:
Instruction by Fanny Priest and Maggie Gentry
Worksheets to further your self-study on that week’s topic
Suggested home practice activities
Access to recorded meditations to enhance your home practice
Access to a private Facebook community for all attendees
