We know that our yoga practice helps us feel better, but how long do those benefits usually last? What are the tools that transform our practice from one which makes us feel good for a short while to one that is unequivocally life-changing? In this innovative course, Bo offers a new alternative to the modern medical paradigms of problem-based, protocol-focused healing. She offers a step-by-step method for well-being in the mind, brain, and body.
This integrative course isn’t limited to the yoga tradition, but also draws from mindfulness, neuroscience, psychology, the body, movement studies, and contemplative practice – fields previously thought to be different which we learn are interrelated and interdependent. We’ll also address some of the “hard questions” of transformation: for example, what does it mean to apply the principles of contemplative practice and the new science of change to real-life situations? What does embodied awareness look like in the difficult, yet pivotal moments of our lives?
Each of the 16 classes in the course offers a seamless blend of theory, process, and practice. This course is self-paced, giving you the time and support to embody and integrate the knowledge and tools.
