Inspire your practice with The Heart of Teaching's special classes and workshops.
Yoga is a process that continuously evolves and engages us, offering infinite possibilities for the integration of body, mind and heart. Somatics is a practice of learning more about ourselves and developing our ability to sense, feel and listen to the wisdom of our body. Integrating yoga and somatics offers the opportunity to return again and again in practice to access our sense of whole-being. Through the embodied self we can flow through life with more awareness, ease and kind-heartedness.

Yin, Meridians and Organs of Expression
2 Hour Workshop
Saturday, November 14 or 21
Personalized sessions are designed on an individual basis, exploring intrinsic movement with specifically designed experiences to meet your unique conditions and intentions. These sessions combine breath and movement, and develop skills for deep inner listening to access possibilities for repatterning, healing and change.
Individual attention can accelerate the learning process and provide an often necessary witness to the experience of natural, organic movement.
This approach can be especially effective with chronic conditions by releasing restrictive patterning on many levels and inviting in new ways to move with ease.
Contact Mary to schedule your session.
