" I have practiced yoga for 22 years but have never been able to develop a home practice. Bethany’s workshop made the process of setting up a home practice so easy and accessible." -- Celeste
"I so enjoyed this Home Practice Series with Bethany. The group setting provided warmth, support, and inspiration. I learned so much about yoga and myself". -- Keely
Establishing a regular yogic home practice is one of the most challenging, and and yet, most rewarding, aspects of yoga. Many of us know how important a yoga home practice is, but have never been able to make it work for any length of time. When to practice? What to practice? How to practice? These questions and more stop us from entering into a practice that can provide some of our most personal, revelatory experiences. When asked about what motivates her to teach her Home Practice Series, Bethany explains:
" 'Home' is my one of favorite words, favorite ideas. I love the idea of living fully in these human lives and bodies, owning them. To have a practice of touching base with one's self is important. I'm teaching this series to offer support in finding out what kinds of practices are appropriate, supportive to each individual. Also, I am continuing to teach it because the first group was so darn wonderful and I want to keep offering this kind of stuff at Mountain, creating space for people to ask questions and find what works." rmore....
In spring we find ourselves rising from winter's hibernation and tending the new sprouts of growth that come with the warmth of the new season. Balancing the element of fire and water become important. In this Spring Home Practice Series Bethany will guide you through asana, pranayama, mudra, restorative yoga, meditation and chakra balancing practices that will support the blossoming of your home practice! Each session includes time for questions and sharing as you develop your personal practice for the season. Bethany Hobbs will guide you through the hurdles of home practice, including:
• special considerations for practice in the spring season
• finding the time for home practice
• creating a sacred practice space
• maintaining a regular schedule of practice
• different strategies for using home practice time
• creating your own home practice yoga sequence
• methods to evaluate your home practice for effectiveness
• calling on your teacher to help support your home practice
• keeping your home practice fresh, fun and in the present moment.
All levels welcome, everyone encouaged! Bethany explains, " I love Mountain Yoga because you can't really slip in and out and maintain full anonymity. You're remembered. That warmth is important, the being real, the community, even if you don't actually have a verbal conversation with anybody. There's a space that we all create, together, even as we are working out our own stuff, finding our individual sovereignty. It's sweet, and it is also imperative that humans participate in staying aware. Again, it's also my hope that my yogis are nourished by the space. I do my best to keep it real." more...
