“I loved the physical exploration of equanimity and recognizing it as strength and power- not passive. [This was a] space to get out of my head and to let my body, gut and heart speak.”
“This was a quiet space to practice self-care, compassion and mindfulness during my busy, draining week. I struggle with allowing myself to feel sad, especially as regards to my history. The mindfulness and lovingkindness are helpful to that end, and I can be with it better.”
“I’m finding it very challenging to have anything other than anger directed toward those whose political views are different than mine. This series really ‘demanded’ that I look at that, in a loving way.
This was “a yoga experience that felt healing and holistic instead of just being about physical exercise.”
