Making The Myths Your Story

  • Kindness Yoga 455 S Hudson St Denver, CO 80246 USA (map)

A weekend exploration of yoga’s ancient myths. The narratives of Ganesha, Kali, Saraswati, Lakshmi, Nataraja and Hanuman will be a jumping off point for students and teachers to discover their own relationship with these vibrant tales of transformation, power, inspiration, devotion, grace and beauty.  The goal is to make these lofty legends relevant to our current lives.  Each session includes storytelling, chanting, pranayama, alignment-focused asana and an opportunity to contemplate and share personal reflections that arise from our practice. Please join us for this opportunity to express your own story through yoga.
