Dismantling People Pleasing for Embodied Intimacy

Embodied intimacy can’t happen when we are dysregulated or when we are so focused on pleasing someone we forget about ourselves. When we turn off the messaging that makes us feel small, when we stop apologizing for our body taking up space and disregard our needs for someone else’s we can hear more clearly the messages of what our body wants. We can’t be embodied if we don’t understand our body.

Yoga is a place where we can begin to uncover the messages of what our body wants. To move in a way that feels good to your body is the foundation of pleasure. This is a series that will disrupt ingrained patterns of reacting to another and center yourself. In learning not to consider what another wants, or say, thinking about that metaphorical gold star we desire from a yoga instructor or the room, one can better center themself. What does my body want is a very different question from what do I want people to think about me?

This yoga class will offer trauma informed functional movement, breathwork, skills for self-regulation and an understanding that yoga exists off the mat.
