I have come to believe that an essential task in my life is to develop and maintain compassionate Stewardship over my own soul.
While it sometimes seems more important to please others, to uphold the opinions of others, to care for others above my own needs, these bottomless tasks eventually leave me feeling depleted, dull.
There are other relationships I am blessed to be inside of, but only one that I am blessed to live with my entire life from day 1 to my last breath.
This compassionate stewardship with my own Soul may actually be the only relationship I am truly tasked with curating in this lifetime; and I don’t just want this relationship to be ‘good.’ I want it to be enchanting and sparkling with well-being.
The work of Dr. Kristin Neff, co-founder of the Center for Self-Compassion, combined with the elemental healing effects of breath work from the yoga tradition and targeted fascial bodywork (yin yoga) are fundamental practices for developing this relationship.
The three aspects of Self-Compassion are self-kindness, common humanity and mindfulness; these are all things we practice on our yoga mat. I’d love to share more with you!
Enrollment is open for my Online Workshop 5 week series: Yin Yoga for Self-Compassion.
Each week will introduce accessible and relaxing yoga and breathing techniques (slow, low to the floor) and teaching on the 3 aspects of Self-Compassion.
Each week’s class is recorded; even if you can’t join class live, please enroll and you’ll receive the links to take class later that day!
Wednesdays September 2-30, 2020. 10:30 am (CST) in the Westport Yoga KC Online Classroom.
Hoping to see you then-
