Fire in the Belly: Workshop Series Exploring the Role of the Physical & Energetic Core in Yoga

  • Left Coast Yoga 3702 Grand Avenue Oakland, CA, 94610 United States (map)

Yoga understands the core as the home of the fire element & tapas, a source of transmutation that can burn away distraction from the path of our highest potential. Misunderstandings of what "the core" is abound in modern pop & fitness culture, often causing more harm then good.

Using the intelligence of the body and contemporary science, we explore how healthy movement that emanates from our center outward, both in our yoga practice & daily life, inherently brings greater confidence, connection and ease. Learning from the Goddess of Fierce Compassion herself, Kali, we explore how 'moving from our center,' even in the midst of challenge,translates to an increased sense of emotional balance, clarity of purpose and compassion for yourself & others.
