Gratitude: A Yoga Practice of Thanksgiving PDF Print E-mail

with Sharon Fellows Lamb, RYT

anjali mudraSunday, November 2, 3:00-5:00pm
Blue Moon Studio, Exeter, NH

Thanksgiving is, for many of us, the tip of the iceberg of holiday stress. While we look forward to the holidays each year, and to the time spent with loved ones, we often get caught up in the stress of travel, house guests, preparations, and shopping.

Take some time out of your busy schedule to re-connect with the spirit of the holidays. Through guided visualizations, breath work, pose practice, and meditation, we will bring awareness to the aspects of our life for which we are grateful, as well as to the opportunities for growth that exist in situations we may find challenging. By cultivating gratitude in the present moment - with all of its imperfections - we prepare to greet the holidays with a sense of contentment and loving awareness.

Blue Moon Studio, Exeter

The days are now growing longer, and those of us who struggle with our darker moods might benefit from the opportunity to experience a few gentle yoga postures and mindfulness techniques.

Yoga postures and breathing practices fortify our bodies to withstand the many stresses of our everyday lives. Yoga philosophy (to be present without judging, for instance) and yoga psychology (what gets in the way of you realizing your most centered and most serene self) offer many lessons for the mind and spirit as we transition to the fall and winter seasons.

flowers in statue hand - smSunday, December 7, 3:00-5:00pm
Blue Moon Studio, Exeter, NH

Whether we work outside of our homes or within, work causes stress. What if a shift in our perception could transform our work stress and move us from a place of struggle to a place of strength?

In this workshop, we will learn the principles of Karma Yoga- the Yoga of action and selfless service- to explore changing the way we approach our work. By doing this, we can transform our work stress and turn difficulties into opportunities.

We will engage in discussion, contemplation, gentle yoga poses, and relaxation. All of the practices will focus on an exploration of our current attitudes toward work and ways to transform work stress. This workshop is suitable for all levels of ability. No prior yoga experience necessary.
