How much do we know about how we hurt? Why? This workshop is where we give intelligence to action. We ask. We explore. We rebuild. There is no magic cure in addressing what hurts, but we are dedicating these few precious hours to listening in to what our bodies and minds are trying to tell us.
Action is movement with intelligence. The world is filled with movement. What the world needs is more conscious movement, more action. -BKS Iyengar
This workshop is near and dear to my heart. It was yoga that broke me and yoga that put me back together after a decade of chronic, debilitating pain.. Our lives close us off- physically, mentally, emotionally. These two hours aren’t magic- but I guarantee they are the beginning of a transformation. There will be a lot of practical tips for breaking the cycle of chronic pain and suffering. Whether it’s your first step on your mat or it’s like a second home, please join me to start inviting in and cultivating a little “good space (sukham).”

About Guest Teacher Mindy Sisco
I suffered from chronic low back pain for more than 10 years and had the fortune of working with a teacher that gave such simple insight that helped me break through the pain. Because of this training, I have been pain free for the past 5 years and continue to get stronger and more pliable with age rather than the other way around!
