Seane Corn's The Yoga of Awakening
Healing happens when we begin to mend the separation in our consciousness between the mind, body and spirit. Understanding this interdependency can radically shift the way we “see” the body, empowering us to support our own health and wellness in a more integrated- and therefore holistic-way.
Through yoga, we can explore:
- The mind/body connection
- The impact our emotional life has on our health
- How to “read” or map the body symbolically
- How to interpret these physiological/emotional messages as spiritual guidance meant to open us to love, acceptance and to appreciate the interconnection that binds us all as one
