ENROLLMENT STILL OPEN! Let’s face it while healthcare is a very rewarding line of work it can oftentimes be very draining and the burn out rate is high. We are faced with a wide array of very challenging situations from seeing people in their most vulnerable moments (sometimes their last moments), time constraints, unforeseen events, long hours with minimal breaks, and oftentimes have work stacking up as we try to offer our full presence and attention to each and every patient we see. This can take a real negative toll on our own health and wellbeing. As healthcare providers we tend to take very good care of others yet forget to take the same diligent care of ourselves.
This series will include the physical practice of yoga, meditation, breathwork, and inquiry or self reflection. No previous Yoga experience is needed or necessary. Beginners are welcome and highly encouraged.
Beginning in June 2021, each of the three 5-week book clubs will focus on different texts and topics in a safe space where we can be in discovery, learn, unlearn and relearn together. Committed to creating inclusiveness and accessibility, we will discuss the systemic structures of racism and their historical origins. We will also address what we can do as individuals and communities to heal as we dismantle these structures and replace them with ones that work for everyone.

Yin is one of the fastest growing styles of yoga and helps tone connective tissue, ligaments and tendons which are critical to our physical well-being and range of motion. Postures are practiced on the floor and each is held for 3-5 or more minutes. As a result, the body is energized, encouraging a free flow of chi/prana—the “life force” of the body that often gets blocked or stagnant.
