Are We Screwed? The Future of Yoga + Keeping It Real AVAILABLE

Limited Capacity seats available

It’s no secret: yoga is both at its historical height of popularity, and also undergoing rapid change in the way it is taught and practiced. As teachers and artisans with wildly different backgrounds, Kathryn and Bo will share their discoveries of common ground, surprising insights, and fresh perspective on the future of yoga, the body, and the ways of developing and maintaining an authentic and lasting career.

In this full-day workshop, drawing from their collective expertise in storytelling, myth, branding, psychology, neuroscience, mindfulness, and yoga, Kathryn and Bo will highlight the major current forces that shape our bodies, careers, and our relationship with ourselves and others. We’ll explore social media, the paradigms or “boxes” that any established field creates for us, the pressure to produce and succeed, the drive to brand the self and body, and the need to cultivate approval from others on whom we depend for our livelihood.

Topics covered:

  • Relational, partner and challenge flows taught by Kathryn
  • Connective tissue work and restorative, therapeutic practices with Bo
  • The neuroscience and psychology of our relationship with our body, self, and others
  • The art of invention and re-invention
  • Discerning between the ‘shoulds’ and what lights you on fire

Together, we’ll access, connect with, and nourish our deep connection with mind, body, and spirit, and with the body of work we’re meant to bring to the world.

Whether you currently teach yoga, hope to teach, or infuse the practice into your life and work, this all-day experience brings insight into the forces that drive change so we can engage with and utilize their power rather than be confined and limited by them.

Please bring: two yoga therapy or tennis balls, a block, a blanket, a mat, and something to write with an in, plus your phone!
