Relational Boundaries Class
The primary word in the title Relational Boundaries is the word “relational.” First and foremost, this means being relational with ourselves to determine what is okay and what is not okay.
See, that’s the most basic definition there is of what a boundary is: what is okay and what is not okay. If you don’t know how to sort this out inside your own head and heart, how on earth will you ever be able to communicate that to another?
In this class, you will learn:
- What caretaking A.K.A. codependency is
- The value of language
- Basic meditation skills
- How to identify and express needs
- How to make a request
Not currently scheduled. Please check back or contact me to tell me of your interest!
Rising Strong™ Classes
Rising Strong™ is about what it takes to get back up and try again.
It’s about owning your story of struggle so you may have the power to write daring new endings. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and Rising Strong™ the clearest path to a wholehearted life.
Daring Greatly™ Classes
Daring Greatly™ is about showing up, being seen and living braving.
Examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that hold you back and identify the new choices and practices that will move you toward more authentic and wholehearted living.
Working one on one with me is by appointment, and I offer Brennan Healing Science, Forrest Yoga, MELT and Integrative Breathing in a private format.
Other Fun Activities!
Annual January Yoga Retreat
Our 7th Annual January Yoga Retreat happens the MLK Holiday weekend of January 17-20, 2020. It is an opportunity to recover from the busy-ness of the holidays and year-end activities and to move intentionally into the new year.
Situated on 1,100 acres in the serene piney woods of the Navasota area, our location is that of Camp Allen which is a lovely place designed to relax, refresh, and refocus. We will be in the newly built Staff Lodge where each room comfortably houses three people. There are two spacious community bathrooms each with three showers and toilet stalls. Plan on sharing a room with two other retreat participants. Two private rooms available for a small fee. All meals and snacks are whole food and plant based. Gluten-free and food allergies can be accommodated.
Here are descriptions of the activities offered:
Saturday and Sunday mornings will afford the opportunity for a slow, deep yoga practice where there is ample time to breathe, stretch and strengthen the body allowing it to heal from year-end busy-ness. Take advantage of deepening your practice or learning about yoga and how it feels in your body. Both morning classes are open to all levels of participants. These classes are conducted with respect and gentleness toward each student, focusing on each student’s physical and energetic requirements.
Integrative Breathing can bring back the natural, full breath you enjoyed as a child. It will help you let go of restrictive breathing patterns so that you can learn to breathe more deeply throughout the day. Deeper breath means more oxygen to all the cells in your body. More oxygen means better health and more enjoyment of all that life offers. Integrative Breathing is a fantastic way to shake off old, gunky energy creating greater clarity as you step into the New Year.
As the unique template of the group forms and the date of the weekend grows closer, additional activities including the MELT Method, an opportunity to create art and the instruction/experience of meditation may be added.
