Does this sound like you?
2020 has caused an awakening:
We are living in extraordinary times and experiencing big shifts in every area of life. You know that this is an opportunity to wake up and live with more purpose. You want tools to navigate these new times, and are ready to strengthen your body, focus your mind, and awaken your spirit.
You want more than the daily grind:
You sense that something more is available: more love, connection, flexibility, ease, satisfaction. Life today can feel repetitive while we’re home and social distancing. You want a method and community to keep you connected, and want to add more stimulation and experience in your daily life.
You want to feel good:
Now, more than ever, it’s essential to have habits and tools to confront modern stressors, boost immunity, and live with more contentment and connection. You want to learn how to expand your health and happiness with time-tested practices that are relevant for life today.
Empowered is rooted in yoga tradition, and applicable to asana practice and everyday life.
Each week you’ll have access to both live and recorded sessions.
One of the most powerful elements of a yoga program is the shared experience.
That’s why have 5 hours of live classes and conversations each of the eight weeks of Empowered, as well as high-quality recorded content that you can that you can experience when it works best for your schedule.
If you can’t make the live (online) sessions, we’ll email the recordings to you so you won’t miss anything.
Yoga is so much more than a workout. It's a system for optimal living.
From Empowered Graduates...
