In a world that is full of suffering and pain, it is important to simultaneously cultivate a deep sense of joy and passion. Without this, we feel empty, we become depleted, and trouble keeping up with our lives. As a result, we may feel confused, trapped or isolated.
Mudita is the sanskrit term for joy which is unadulterated by self-interest, or happiness for no reason. In order to feel non-competitive joy with others, we just first be able to feel it in ourselves.
Joy comes from a sense of childlike wonder, playfulness and co-creative connection with others and our world. Yoga asana and breath awareness offer us a field for study. In this field we build trust, safety, connection and resilience.
Join Cynthia for an afternoon exploration of the joy body in yoga asana. This workshop is open to all levels of students.
