This is what Nature can teach us:

To fall,

patiently to trust our heaviness.

even a bird has to do that

before she can fly.

~ Rilke, The Book of Hours II.16

As we collectively face the challenges that COVID-19 have brought into our lives, many of us are experiencing a deep sense of fatigue that may have been just under the surface for quite some time: suppressed and supplanted by the grinding need to be perpetually productive. This physical lethargy may also be accompanied by feelings of sadness, depression and anxiety.

In this workshop, international teacher and writer Donna Farhi will share some strategies for accepting where we are and using this as a steppingstone to gently lure ourselves out of inertia. Instead of abandoning practice altogether, we can relish the soothing support of the ground and how the body is wisely attempting to downshift into the parasympathetic nervous system to build new resources. Our time on the floor will focus on increasing circulation and vitality through gradually freeing up tension in the neck, shoulders and spine. We’ll utilize gentle asanas, spinal oscillation and twists, as well as longer stays in supported Restorative postures, completing our time together with the profoundly relaxing practice of Yoga Nidra.

Please be ready for the workshop:

• Note paper and pen

• yoga mat, 3 blankets, 1 bolster, block and yoga belt, a thin hand towel and 3 rubber bands, folding chair or dining room chair.
