The Second Chapter: A Yoga Experience for Women over 50 in Truth, Love & Letting Go with Leslie Luft Sat, Nov 11, 2017 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
ARE YOU READY?
Are you at a place of indecision? Is there a crossroads that is inviting you to shift perspectives or perhaps change your life? Do you feel stagnant or on the fence? If you are uncertain, then the answer is YES.

Whether you are at the throes of empty-nesting or menopause, changing careers or relationships, shifting health or wealth, deliberating moving the couch or moving to California, or simply wondering if this all there is, then this workshop is for you. Through yoga practice, group discussion, self-exploration and meditation, we will cultivate a deeper sense of identity, stability, safety and well-being at a time in our lives where all may be turned around and upside down.

As our external factors shift, we will work on remembering our inner wisdom and experience, our truest selves and our core, what is steady and what is certain in the face of fear and change. We will ask questions and go deeper into intuitive space and then using our intuition as inspiration, we will acknowledge the adventures we are on with a new sense of confidence as we begin to let go and surrender of what is no longer serving us. It is time to enter into this new and exciting chapter in our lives, and acknowledge ourselves as the wise women we are.
