Yoga as Self Transformation
with Kate Smith
October 12 2019
11:15am - 12:45pm
Registration
$280
Register Yoga as Self Transformation

This seven week series will explore the unique and immediate experience and benefits of the combination and union of yoga and group share.  Kate invites participants to explore concepts and themes that are central to personal growth and self expression.  The "power of group" has proven to have a profound impact on moving and shifting thought and habit patterns, old beliefs and feeling states that can keep us from expansion, change and personal transformation.  

There will be a half hour yoga practice followed by an hour of group share in a safe and confidential space carefully and skillfully facilitated by Kate.

The benefits of yoga and group share:  Practicing yoga prior to self expression calms the nervous system and focuses the mind.  It can allow people to better tolerate stressful even painful feelings without shutting down.  Conscious connectedness thru the process of group share can contribute to more self compassion and a deeper connection with self and others.

The body is the messenger. . .what comes up in our practice is often a meaningful message not to be ignored.  Bringing those thoughts and feeling to the group community can help to uncerstand the parts of self we rarely listen to or get validation for.

The practice of yoga and group chare can help to access and express feelings.  

Once the series has begun it will be closed. There will be no drop ins permitted.  All levels of yoga students are welcome. For questions or any further information, kate can be contacted at kateksmithma@aol.com

Smith MA, RYT is a licensed psychotherapist in private practice.  She holds a Masters Degree in clinical psychology and is certified in Clinical Hypnotherapy.  Kate completed her RYT certification with Katherine Austin Wooley in 2008.  She is a culinary graduate and devoted student of Ayurveda and has taught Ayurvedic cooking classes at Karma Yoga.
