How can you make the shift from wanting to love your body (but not really feeling it on the inside), to living it as a daily reality?
The Body Love Yoga workshop is designed to provide you with real, tangible answers to this question.
This one-day workshop is for anyone wishing to feel more at home in their body, and move beyond self-limiting beliefs. The workshop includes therapeutic vinyasa flow and yin yoga, journaling, meditation, group processes, and creative practices.
Excellent for regular yoga practitioners, complete beginners, yoga teachers, therapists, and health professionals. Open to all levels of experience.
I founded Body Love Yoga in 2012, and have since been running this workshop around Australia.
