#LOVE YOUR BODY WEEK March 22-27 on MOXIE!




YOGA BEYOND the OPTICS
LIVE Monday, March 22, 2021
9:00-10:00 AM via www.moxie.xyz
 
We “women of a certain age” find ourselves at a threshold that is altogether unfamiliar and uncomfortable. We are no longer young. We are not yet old. Hormonal changes cloud our perceptions and play havoc with our bodies. We feel invisible. The current marketing optics around yoga don't help that feeling.

Personally, I’m fed up with the optics. I'm so over the shameless marketing behind humiliating ourselves into thinking that in order to be loved we have to lose weight, lift our boobs, firm up our booties, tighten our bellies, fill up our laugh lines, cover our arms, hide our necks, and dye our hair. Maybe I'm just finally facing the inevitable, but I've come to love my body more, as I've aged. Why not? 

Yoga, in its pure form, teaches that we are naturally beautiful and lovable, no matter, what we look like, no matter what stage of life we are in. Women are the bearers of life. Women are the vessels of humanity. Women are the energy of Shakti– without which Shiva, the ground, can produce nothing. Women are the ultimate creators, the makers, and the sustainers. 

This special #LOVE YOUR BODY WEEK Shakti-flavored Yoga session on Moxie is in honor of recognizing ourselves as women of advanced maturity, wisdom, and insight. To love ourselves first, just as we are. To move and flow any way that we can, with grace and aplomb. To feel strong, relaxed, curious, sexy, and comfortable in our own skin. To feel light. To be free. 

Joyfully, we enter into this crowning phase of life where we now can stand up tall for ourselves, create our lives around what we want and need, empower our own means, embrace all of our emotions, express ourselves purely, trust our own wisdom, and expand our spiritual horizons. Please join me in this gentle, celebratory yoga practice for women of a certain age. 

We'll focus on Svadhistha, the second chakra and womb, with breathwork, and postures on the floor and standing. No props required. Come just the way you are.
