From the time we are small children, society infiltrates our minds with messages that our bodies are inherently flawed, and must be “fixed” through compulsive dieting and exercise. Society tells us that our bodies are ornaments to be looked at, rather than instruments that have infinite purposes in the world. We hear harmful messages about body shapes and sizes, and many of us begin to feel ashamed of our bodies.
In this class, we will work to “un-learn” these harmful societal messages about our bodies, and we will instead generate a way of relating to them with compassion, appreciation, and care. This class will be a fusion of slow flow along with yin poses to target areas that hold trauma, harm and fear. We will create space for more self-love, serenity, and gratitude in the body.
The principal of “Ahimsa” means non-violence and compassion for all. Through this practice, we will begin to release the harmful, violent messages that our society has taught us about our bodies, and begin to relate to our body with compassion and love.
