Release & Renew. Part 2 Bye 2016! Hello 2017! Two part workshop

  • Yoga One 609 Broadway Street Alexandria, MN, 56308 United States (map)

This workshop is about letting go, honoring the past with gratitude and starting fresh with renewed perspective. We hope to cultivate this powerful inner experience to help us all see  and heal ourselves. In naming the qualities, behaviors, experiences and thoughts we wish to let go of we are better able to identify what makes us feel alive, happy and healthy.

We are exited to share this with you! These types of actions are super fun, helpful and healthy! Supporting and feeling supported to do these things in a group or as a community is very special. 

This is a very personal journey, You will not be asked to share and everything will be guided.

This will be a two part series, in the first we reflect and release the past year, in the second, we will be dreaming, imagining, goal setting and cultivating what we would like to see and do moving forward, and welcome the new year with a clean slate! New energy and outlook. Please note, this event is in conjunction with the 108 salutations event and you are invited to join as a part of this practice.

Part One: 

Mark your learning, growing, forgiving and releasing with intentional reflection. Just as we deep clean and re arrange our physical spaces, it is life changing to do the same thing for yourself! You may be surprised the impact it can make on your memories of the past and your creativity, mindset and priorities for moving into a new year! We will be guiding you through a series of exercises to intentionally let go, and we will also look at the great parts and highlight them. We will be reflecting and journaling, as well as learning some tools to work with in processing the year. Through meditation, movement and breathe exercises, we will be offering various hands on, artful processes to symbolize what we would like to let go of and what we learned from.

*Please bring a brand new notebook, &/or a beloved journal.

Part two:

 Re awaken your creativity, and let your heart sing! Allow the freedom of the future to beacon your intentions! We look toward cultivating the spirit of creating a life where you are engaged and fulfilled. This can be creatively through thoughts and feelings, or taking physical steps toward goals and intentions, or both! Let them dance together and see what comes forth! With this you also get a chance to watch yourself, your patterns and your triumphs for reflection in 2018! We will have a similar format with journaling and creative symbolic exercises, at the end we will celebrate and cultivate joy! Yoga Nidra will be lead by Mary Jane Kieth to conclude this practice.
