Yoga Lunch Today: Find Your Voice & Speak Your Honest Truth

0

Through focus on breath, voice, and energy centers in the body, you’ll be able to experience your natural voice. Through out-loud meditation, learn to speak your truth, even when it hurts. Learn to approach difficult conversations in a nonreactive, honest way, while staying centered in the body. Learn to witness the changing sensations in your body as you speak and remain grounded, even when experiencing sensations associated with anxiety, anger, or sadness. Using tools from the school of soulful communication and basic North Indian classical singing, this workshop is intended to bring yoga off the mat and into the art of healing relationships.
