$39

We’ve all been through a hell of a year. It’s important for our own healing and the collective’s health that we seek out opportunities to process all that we have and continue to move through. As yogis, we are invited to bring embodiment and intentionality into how we choose to show up both right now and in the months ahead, as opposed to mindlessly going back to the same old routine. We also know that certain things weren’t working pre-pandemic and this time has revealed to us all the inequities and injustices that we must no longer ignore. So, what are we letting go of, what are stepping into, what does collective care look like moving forward, and what do we imagine for ourselves and each other?

This program was designed to allow you to move through the material on your own, using all the pre-recorded practices and/or the opportunity to move through in community with a monthly live practice.

All practices will give you the space to begin to explore and unpack all we’ve been through since March 2020, individually and collectively.

Using stillness and movement, inquiry and conversation, Maura has designed these practice to help feel into our experiences and create pathways towards healing as we continue to navigate the different stages of the pandemic.
