Breath Connection is an experiential workshop for those seeking to deepen their yoga practice as well as their relationship to Self and others.
In today’s stressful world, sometimes it is difficult to find the time to slow down, turn inward, find balance and grounding. Paula and Melissa provide a safe space to explore in more depth practices that may be familiar to you from yoga, such as movement, meditation, breathing and mindfulness, and some others, perhaps not as familiar, drawn from the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model of psychotherapy.
Each session includes time for the group to discuss/journal and process what has been explored. Through these practices, you will leave each session with a greater sense of Self and your own inner resources for creating balance and ease in your day to day life.
