Nourish and Be yoga classes and spiritual workshops provide safe movement that facilitates healing on a physical level and energetic work that creates greater authenticity on an emotional level.
Doing yoga, or any kind of spiritual work, is a practice. It is a willingness to create a safe and sacred space in which to explore all facets of your physical, mental, and energetic being. As you learn from texts, spiritual masters, and your own inner wisdom, a willingness develops to carry the practice into reality. Your being becomes used to responding from an authentically aware place. This vulnerability through authenticity allows you to more deeply connect with the world around you in a meaningful way.
Yes, yoga is about movement and keeping your body flexible and healthy, but the physical piece of yoga serves only as a means to create space for energetic well-being. A tight, uncomfortable body with pent up energy has less capacity for energy to freely flow and awareness to grow. The physical movement allows you to more deeply connect with your inner self where the spiritual work can then unfold.
There are many styles of yoga, which is good because there are many types of people! Different styles have resonated with me throughout the years. The style I was trained in is Forrest Yoga, a practice that is founded on five pillars — Breath, Strength, Integrity, Spirit, and Go Deeper. It is internally focused practice that emphasizes how to carry a transformative experience off the mat and into daily life. The practice challenges students to access their whole being and to use Forrest Yoga® as a path to finding and then cleansing the emotional and mental blocks that dictate and limit their lives. Forrest Yoga® does not require strength or flexibility; it only requires a willingness to learn how to feel authentically and respond honestly.
