More on yoga and mindfulness. Lucie's yoga classes are accessible and enjoyable for all levels of yoga. She will take you through an energizing flow mixed with long holds of the stretchy poses we all love. Modifications are offered throughout the class so you can add more energy or take some away at any point during the class. We always finish with a generous savasana with hands on assist (massage!).
Mindfulness practice is a way to learn how to approach your life with a new perspective on stress and discomfort. In the mindfulness workshop, you can expect to learn more about how we typically respond to stress and discomfort in our lives and why the way we currently do things is not working for us. We will practice being present in the moment and, as a result, for each moment of our lives.
In mindful self-compassion, we learn that we do not need to be perfect. We learn that we do not need to incessantly judge and criticize ourselves for perceived shortcomings. Instead, you can use self-compassion, which means you are kind and understanding when confronted with personal failings. You may try to change in ways that allow you to be more healthy and happy, but this is done because you care about yourself, not because you are worthless or unacceptable as you are. In this part of the workshop, you will learn specific practices to help you deal with the inner critic.
