Cultivating Vulnerability

Do you tend to shy away from being vulnerable? The art and practice of yoga helps us to cultivate vulnerability, without it there is no connection, and without connection there no sense of community. Join Bee as she helps you find the courage to open up, connect, and shine. Start by chanting a potent prayer ‘Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu’ which translates from Sanskrit to, ‘May all beings everywhere be happy and free, may the thoughts, words, and actions of my own life contribute in some way to that happiness and to that freedom for all’, this mantra will help you to become a conduit for change. Gently begin to wake up the body, open the shoulders, and move through a strengthening, hip opening, twisting flow. Get into a lateral, side-body opening sequence, then descend down onto the mat for some core work. Finish with a lengthening, back body opening, shoulderstand variation, before coming to rest in a deep, prayerful, healing Savasana.

Prayer during Savasana is called Honoring Transformation from the book, Prayers of Honoring Voice by Pixie Lighthouse.
