Self-compassion, Joy and Loving Kindness through Meditation and Iyengar Yoga

Developing a compassionate relationship to your body and mind can greatly enhance emotional resiliency and well-being. Based on Iyengar yoga as taught by B.K.S. Iyengar and the Mindful Self-Compassion program developed by Christopher Germer and Kristin Neff, this workshop offers practical skills for increasing self-compassion and positive life habits.
