THRESHOLD with Becky Vollmer of You Are Not Stuck Saturday, Feb. 9, 2019 1-4 p.m. $75
Threshold [thresh-ohld], noun: 1. any place of entering or beginning; 2. the starting point of an experience, event, or venture In each of our lives, we reach a place where something new and beautiful awaits — if only we can muster the courage to walk toward it. It’s the point of departure, the threshold. But standing between us and the lives we want is fear. Do I have what it takes to do this thing? Will I stumble and fall? Will I make a fool of myself, or hurt someone else in the process? Am I too old to start fresh? Shouldn’t I be content where I am? Do I even *deserve* what I desire? And if we make it past all the other doubtful questions, there’s this: How the hell do I begin? We advance down the road of freedom by remembering that “stuck” is a feeling, not a fact. The truth is that we all have choices, we just have to be brave enough to make them. In this three-hour workshop, we’ll breathe with intent to connect with our highest selves and deepest aspirations. We’ll bust through the fears that make change so intimidating, begin to feel the power that lies in our choices, and move through a series of poses designed to embolden and soothe the body and mind. This workshop isn’t just for experienced yogis (all postures can be modified for beginners); it’s for anyone with the desire to live the life they dream of instead of the life they feel stuck in. There will be portions of reflection and writing, so please bring a notebook and pen.
