Mental health includes the way we perceive our lives, how we interact with the world and our communities as well as our internal emotional landscape. Our mental health can affect our day to day life, relationships, physical health and our ability to build and sustain psychological resilience. Yoga can support us to feel more at home in our bodies and more connected in our relationships, communities and beyond.

This 4-part workshop will unpack the Yogic and medical models of mental health and explore how to understand, embody and utilize the practices and philosophies of yoga. We will move through an al levels asana practice to support being balanced and grounded so we can make the world we live in better, more beautiful, and way more interesting.
