Join guest teacher Rebecca Wildbear, RYT-500, MS for a deep and joyful inward journey into the playfulness of your body and the mysterious imagery of your soul.

There is some kiss we want
with our whole lives,
the touch of spirit on the body.
-Rumi

Have you ever felt a yearning for something unknown? Or a longing to feel more alive, offer your gifts, or love completely? If so, the journey of soul may be calling you. Your soul is the essense of who you are and your unique purpose for being here. There are practices, such as Wild Yoga, to tap into your imagination and hear the call of your soul. Wild Yoga is a sacred way of moving and breathing that will allow you to remember your belonging to the Earth community. Wild Yoga includes an asana practice that welcomes all levels of physical ability, and encourages your movements to follow the prana of your own being. Poetry, music, and imagery bring nature and soul into the practice. A deep imagery experience will connect you with your soul. Surrender to what arises from your depths, deepen your relationship with the evolving Earth, and find yourself alive in your truest form, forever growing and becoming.
