The Beauty of Boundaries
Abby Dobbs returns to Lighthouse for another powerful workshop.
Saturday August 22, 2-4 pm (ONLINE)
Cost: $40 general / $30 members
Boundaries are our energetic containers – how we manage our life force both internally and externally.
Boundaries have many definitions and purposes – and how you individually relate to them is hugely important in your life. They can have a positive or negative impact on our lives, depending upon how we use the power inherent in them.
Mindfully managed, boundaries support and protect us, and feed our spirits. Used incorrectly, boundaries can cause drama in many aspects of our lives. Without boundaries, we can become depleted and compromise our energy. When we become more skillful in setting appropriate and healthy boundaries, we actually create more freedom!
Inner Work for Racial Justice: Healing Circles
Black bodies, brown bodies, and white bodies are all affected by racism in different ways. Racism shows up at work, school, in our communities, and all aspects of our daily lives. It affects both individual attitudes and institutional structures. Racism is one of the biggest challenges we face in our work to create a world that is fair and just.
By giving us the capacity to look inward, yoga and meditation provide some of the necessary tools to begin to unpack this legacy of racism that is lodged in our bodies and minds, and align truth to action. But sometimes we also need a little peer support and guidance.
Join us for 2 bi-monthly Healing Circles to acknowledge, unpack and confront racism.
- For Us By Us Healing Circle for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color)
- Ally Group for White-Bodied People
The sessions meet on the second and fourth Mondays of the month. Free and open to all.
Hatha Yoga Teacher Training
Becoming a yoga teacher is about transformation.
It’s a chance to dive deep into what inspires and motivates you. It’s a way to give back to your community by sharing a practice that has sustained you.
Our next RYT-200 Hatha Teacher Training starts in September 2020. The training will be led by Tara Lemerise, who will be assisted by Megan Davis, Abby Dobbs, Rebecca Henry and Melanie Camellia. The training meets one weekend a month over 9 months at Lighthouse Yoga Center.
The training will be a mixture of online, using best practices that have been developed during our Kundalini Yoga Teacher Training, and in-person when we’re able.
Our small-group training format will allow for greater flexibility and sharing, to maximize benefits of this experience.
Online info session on Wednesday August 26, 7:30 pm.
