why make an altar?
A yoga altar is a visual reminder of the devotion and commitment you have for your yoga practice. It enlivens your practice space. Moves you when you need inspiration to practice. Focuses your mind when you are distracted. And, they are a whole lot of fun to make!
In this afternoon LIVEstream workshop with Anja Borgstrom you will put together your own personalized yoga altar using an accordion-folded base provided to you in advance and personal items of inspiration you have gathered. On the day of the workshop you will gather together with Anja who will provide an inspired setting and all the guidance you need for assembling your personal altar. Leave having experienced a relaxing afternoon of art-making with your yoga community and a treasured altar to be displayed in your yoga practice space!
