Workshop: "Mindful Nature" with Traca Gress

Drawing from ancient yogic and Buddhist texts as well as shamanic and native teachings we will take an embodied journey of the five elements; earth, water, fire, air and space. The intention is that by paying attention to the way the elements live inside us we feel an innate sense of connection not only with a deep well of wisdom within but we are also more able to connect with nature and all beings. We naturally live more compassionately because we know we are not separate. No yoga experience necessary. We will use gentle practices of sounding, breathing, moving and meditating.
