Workshop Details

“We all share a desire for joy, and seek experiences that produce freedom, gratitude, and light-heartedness,” says Peter Sterios. “When we manifest this in our lives, we see our world more clearly, feel our relationships more authentically, and learn more about ourselves through intimate connection to others and the natural world. Ultimately, our lives become an expression of deep gratitude, which supports subtle body healing within and around us.”
This course leads you through a simple program of mindful, breath-full movement and inner dialog that meets you wherever you are – physically or psychologically. Together, the group will share experiences through storytelling, group learning, yoga, and meditation to access a natural lightness in how you feel and think, which reminds us of the innocence our lives began with, and which reawakens wonder, inspiration, and delight for supporting us at any stage of life.
You can discover how to naturally release unwanted, often unconscious patterns of contraction in your body – physically, mentally, and emotionally, from ancient practices found in yoga which produce an incredible lightness of being. Once you feel this, you can incorporate a more intuitive approach for living in the most refreshing and enlightening ways.
Please bring a yoga mat, and a journal for reflection and notes.
