Workshop Details

Who am I? What is my purpose? What is the most importing thing right now in my life? Have you asked yourself these questions? According to the Bhagavad Gita, an ancient yogic scripture, it is better to live your own dharma (calling) imperfectly, than to live someone else’s dharma perfectly. Sometimes, however, the greatest challenge is recognizing your dharma. The Gita and your own body offer guidance.
In this experiential program, cultivate your authentic self through the transformative practices of yoga and free-form movement. If you’re feeling stuck, if you’re ready to pursue your calling, or if you simply love yoga and dance, this program invites you to come alive. Through conscious movement, build the courage to listen to your inner calling. Once you experience the physical and felt sense of being in alignment — breath flowing, body free, fully engaged — you can draw on this embodied knowing to discern your passions and dharma. Return home with simple principles drawn from yoga and Soul Motion™ to transform your everyday life. No experience required. Please bring a journal.
