Join Georgia for a creative flow and workshop that will look at the the negotiation of your heart and gut in your yoga practice. Sometimes we need to tap into our open loving heart; sometimes we need to tap into our wise intuition. The classes and workshops that make up the Heart and Gut Series are designed to build awareness around when to forge ahead and have faith versus when to ground down and listen. We will get on our mats, turn up the music, move through a creative (and FUN) sequence, sweat, and drop into a meditative empowering flow. THEN we will break down a specific set of postures that open and strengthen the side body, and work together to find authentic expressions of these postures that draw from the heart AND the gut.

$35 Before May 12th, $40 after

About Georgia Reath and Blue Light Yoga:

I have been practicing yoga for seventeen years, teaching yoga for eleven years.  I practice yoga because it makes me strong and flexible physically and emotionally; it connects me to my myself, the here and now, and to others; and it mirrors the flow of my life off my mat.  I teach yoga because I believe in the practice’s transformative and healing powers.  After almost two decades of training with teachers near and far in a myriad of disciplines, I have honed an authentic practice and method of teaching yoga that is centered on thoughtful, informed alignment (you will not get away with poor alignment in my class); smart, fun and creative sequencing; and a very intentional balance between exertion and restoration.  I teach what I know.  I share what inspires me.  My classes are challenging yet accessible.

Through the use of repetition, pranayama, bandhas, music, and with a deep respect for the cleansing power of sweat, I try to ease my students into a transformative space.  I am committed to paying attention to, engaging, and often, gently pushing my students.  My intention is for my students to be inspired and to learn in every class.  

Yoga doesn’t stop at the mat.  The practice includes our whole life.  Living honestly and authentically, being open-minded, being of service, and practicing empathy on a daily basis are the founding principles of Blue Light.
