“No matter who you are, or what you look like you are enough. Don’t let anyone tell you your body has figure flaws. That would mean there is such a thing as a perfect body. The perfect body is a beauty myth. We are fortunate to have mother nature create a body that is perfect for us”

The Art and Science of Asana for All with Dianne Bondy at Pearl St

Dianne invites you to participate in unique asana variations and unconventional models of practice that focus on safe and accessible self-expression. This practice includes a hands-free vinyasa flow, and an exploration of the yin and yang of asana, followed by a restorative practice and an empowering closing meditation. Safely explore the many different forms and expressions of traditional yoga postures!
Yoga, Body Image and Social Justice with Dianne Bondy at Pearl St
SunDate: 6/25/2017From: 11:00 am – 1:30 pm
We’re all in this together! This is what the yoga practice teaches us. Together we rise, and together we create positive change. Conclude your weekend with a mind-opening exploration into the power of social change as it relates to the tenets of yoga. You are invited to experience the connection between body image, equality and equity and the power of the yoga practice as a vehicle for shifting consciousness. In a lively, open forum discussion, we will explore the impacts of our own conditioning on the injustice and inequality experienced in our local communities. Examine what is holding you back personally and collectively, and uncover the strategies and tools you need to break through the societal norms and divisions that block us from social change. Learn how to use your yoga practice to help change the world!
