“You are amazing as you are. Stronger than you know; more beautiful than you think; worthier than you believe; more loved than you could ever imagine. You are passionate, growing, not alone, generous, smart and so much more. Be Confident. Be Strong. Be You.” –Mrs. Michelle Obama

This practice is an opportunity to explore both your strength through challenging poses that are grounded and accessible along with tenderness that is sometimes illusive. External messaging tells us to be one or the other; yoga is a way to bring both together (strength & compassion). Shri Devi invites you to explore the both elements through this yoga and meditation workshop. Bring all that you are to this POC community practice that holds the various ways strength, compassion and tenderness can show up on the mat and beyond. No previous yoga experience necessary, only an open heart and curiosity in seeing your practice shine.
