Art of Connection
Art of Connection - Weaving yoga, music and interconnectedness, we dance through the matrix between us and nature. Yoga... The art of connection... connection to self, to nature, and to each other. Moving with the current that runs through all life. Connecting to our bodies and our minds. Connecting to our true nature with all its energy, rediscovering buried treasures and feeling the remembered and the new flow through us, between us. Moving in & out of self and community. Exploring the landscapes and physiology of the human body, that unifies us with the symbiosis of nature. In this workshop with Lauren and Manoa, we return to the connective energy between us and that is always here - through partner and group yoga asana, intuitive movement, poetic sounds, mindfulness of nature and safe, gentle, loving touch. Lauren is passionate about looking at how we can rethink, reprogram and regenerate the way we approach connection to ourselves and others; so that we can continue to evolve and open to more love, acceptance, truth, compassion and authenticity. A special workshop to step you out of the wildness of your mind, tap you back into your heart, bring awareness into your body and feel connection to community.
