Extend thySelf - Workshop Closed

This moving away from comfort and security, this stepping out into what is unknown, uncharted, and shaky – that’s called liberation.   Pema Chodron 

About the workshop

We will experiment with poses that are done less often in yoga class. Don’t let this workshop intimidate you, everyone is welcome! Here we experiment and we laugh, at ourselves and together as we try without attachment to uncover the poses.

We will work with our minds and bodies. We will warm up and open up the body so that poses that appear out of reach can be accessed. With the mind, we create space for possibilities. Whatever form the possibility takes, we open up to it. We do all this with an expansive heart and a dash of playfulness.

Who can join

Everyone! Please join if this workshop speaks to you. All are welcome!

We will work with poses that are not done very often in class. Whether you do the pose or not is irrelevant.  How we approach the poses and time together is what matters.

Nathalie Bittar will deliver this workshop. Nathalie is the founder of Blue Nile Lotus. 

Nathalie is fascinated by the human journey; with all its ups and downs. She is curious about how we create our realities and how with tools like yoga and meditation, we can release our stories and re-experience life through the eyes of a child. 

She encountered yoga over 20 years. Her first yoga teacher training program was in New York at Laughing Lotus. She then completed two additional yoga teacher training programs that incorporated mindfulness and meditation practices with yoga. Nathalie is currently undergoing a masters degree in Core Process psychotherapy. The masters program complements her foundation in yoga, and provides further understanding on emotions and how to support moving towards our natural state of health. Her aim in facilitating workshops is to incorporate mind and body practices, so that each one of us becomes more aware and empowered to heal ourselves from physical and emotional discomfort.
