Our Feeling Yogi class will now be from NOON UNTIL 3 PM ON MAY 4TH. This change in timing is to accommodate those who will move on to the SPECIES PARADE AT 4pm. This parade is a wonderful event, in case you have missed it in the past!

UPDATE: Elizabeth has decided that late notification for the content of the April 20th class means it would be better to reschedule the same class for May 4th, still at 8Petals from 1 to 4 pm.

Dear Friends,

This coming Saturday, April 20th, On Saturday, May 4th, I will offer a Saturday afternoon Deepening Yoga class at 8Petals from 12 to 3 pm from 1 to 4:00 pm, with a focus on working with emotions within the context of yoga practice.

The Feeling Yogi: Emotions, Svadyaya or Self Reflection, and the Practice of Yoga

Our emotional natures have a place within practice, though there is not much guidance directly offered in the classical yoga scriptures suggesting how we might utilize our feeling selves within the inner search that is at the heart of the journey. We will honor the emotional dimension, and consider fruitful approaches to working with the gifts of our feeling selves, especially as this emerges within our practice in class, or on our own.  We will practice asana, pranayama, and meditation geared towards soothing our emotional bodies, based on a practice sequence offered by BKS Iyengar in his book Light on Life. Please bring an image or altar object that reflects something of your emotional relationship with your practice of yoga.

The tuition will be $30 to $45 for the class; please inquire about bartering if you need to pay less. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions in advance via email or phone.
“ If your compassion does not include yourself, it is incomplete. ”
May these days of Spring bring each of us inner nourishment and vitality.
Sending warm greetings, Elizabeth
