This is a safe and mindful class for those who feel as though they have lost "touch" with their bodies and are wishing to reconnect. When we face the most difficult of human experiences - grief, fear, tragedy, illness, lonliness - it is common to lose awareness and sensitivity in our physical beings. The result of this is often a sense of numbness, both physically and emotionally. This class is designed to provide gentle exploration to reawaken body and spirit. Additionally, we will be working with movements and poses designed to regulate the nervous system so that we are able to feel more alive, happy, content and grounded both on and off the yoga mat. The class is appropriate for both beginning and advanced students. Taught by Heather Kazda, LISW and RYT 500. Heather is a trained psychotherapist who works as a social worker with students and families in Albuquerque Public Schools. She has been practicing yoga for 14 years and has been teaching for six. She specializes in utilizing somatic therapy and yoga to help others experience more peace, joy and meaning in daily life.
