CBD 2023: The Healing Power of Embodied Connection with Oneself and with Other People with Elysabeth Williamson
October 27, 2023 | 7:30pm - 8:30pm
Principle-Based Partner Yoga™ extends and builds upon the forms and principles of traditional yoga by incorporating the presence of another person as one’s partner while one engages in practice. This unique shared, mutually beneficial practice deepens the contemplative experience.
This style of Partner Yoga awakens our human potential through the integration of universal principles such as compassion, trust, balance, and creativity.
Because of the compassionate touch inherent in the practice, Principle-Based Partner Yoga provides a pathway into Yoga that makes it accessible and engaging to people who may have previously felt uncertain about how to begin doing yoga on their own.
Join Elysabeth Williamson as she shares insights from many years of teaching. She will illuminate how the principles are directly experienced and integrated within the practice. She will talk about how a relational form of Yoga acts on the mind, body, emotions, and nervous system. A Q&A portion will be included in this talk.
This talk is part of a three-session series taught by Elysabeth Williamson. Attendees are encouraged to register for one or all three sessions in the series.
The second in the series is on Oct. 28 and titled,
