GRATEFUL & GROUNDED - A Yin Yoga Workshop with Faye

Join Faye from The Recharge Project and Yoga Ground for a unique afternoon of Yin and Storytelling on Gratitude.

It is often said that it’s not happiness that brings us gratitude, but gratitude that brings us happiness. 

Wisdom seekers and ancient sages have known about this universal truth since time eternal. Modern Science and the practices of Positive Psychology are now revealing the same eternal truth about the central role that gratitude plays in the pursuit of happiness.

The workshop will present you with both perspectives on the practice of gratitude. You’ll hear about the practices of gratitude from ancient times, and also learn more about the compelling science behind the practice of gratitude in modern times.

The workshop is very experiential, and primarily organized around a carefully selected sequence of yin poses aimed at the heart space. Plenty and plenty of poses that target the chest, neck, shoulders and back – areas where many of us hold a lot of unnecessary tension. You’ll get so much relief in those tension spots!

For your mind, we have a thoughtful selection of passages, poems, reflections and ancient teachings on the subject of gratitude to contemplate as you hold the poses. We’ll also introduce you to the fascinating world of the Science of Gratitude as you hold the yin poses.

We’ll seal off the practice with a divine yoga nidra dedicated to opening up and energizing the heart space (the place where gratitude resides in our human bodies).

COME AS YOU ARE AND FLOAT OUT OF THE WORKSHOP ON A CLOUD OF INNER CALM & JOY. YOU’LL FEEL RESTED, RECHARGED – AND GRATEFUL!
