Befriending the Dragon: Balancing Destructive Emotions, Mar 10
Adults. According to Yoga Yard, trauma is the birthplace of destructive emotions. Without proper recognition of these behavioral patterns, we can often regress in our emotional development. That regression becomes the inhibitor of living the lives that we were intended for. Emotions are not meant to be feared but rather to be understood, like markers of a wound that needs to be healed. Fear is a mile wide, but paper thin. By first coming to a place of greater emotional awareness, we can move through the fear, into acceptance, and lastly, begin to utilize the practices that can act as the salve to our emotional wounds. By using techniques from both qigong and yoga participants will explore meditations, mudras, and other means by which to befriend the dragon that means us no harm. 2.30-5.30pm. RMB 450. The language of the event is English. Visit this page for more information or to register. Yoga Yard.
