Hillsborough Yoga Company

Cost: $40, or $15 per session 

 

Ever wondered how to bring your yoga practice beyond the studio walls? As you may already know, yoga is more than poses and breath. It connects us to our inner selves and helps us relate more consciously to other people, creatures, communities, and the world. Each session in this laid-back drop-in series will include embracing a yoga theme on your mat and simple ways to take that idea out into the world. Beginners are always welcome.

Yoga for Making Peace with Your Belly

Sunday, February 14, 3-4:30pm at Grow Well

727 Eastowne Dr, Chapel Hill, NC 

Cost: $10-$35

 

So much of the messaging we get about our stomachs centers on “shrinking,” “sucking in” and harshest of all, “blasting” away the softness. What if, instead of treating the core of our body as a villain to be conquered, we could approach it with gratitude and kindness? Think about how full your breath could be and how relaxed your mind could become if you could find peace in that soft strength!

Join us February 14 for this special yoga class, doing just that: starting a more peaceful relationship with your belly. Beginners are welcome!
