Building Qi

This workshop is those who would like to learn how to work practise shadow work in yoga. 

 

Have you ever asked yourself how do we evolve ourselves and our communities whilst the world is rapidly changing? How do we make the contributions that we want to make and then recharge in a way that enables the feeling that we are still doing internal work without spiritually by-passing the issues that concern us.

 

As a lifelong activist for human rights, I would like to share with you how I manage to restore my energy and my faith in humanity whilst engaging in uncomfortable work. 

 

This is an asana class that focuses on building personal Qi, enabling practitioners to witness what action steps we can personally take to create more balance in activism as a yoga practitioner.
