Description

Backbending Over the Dollar:
Reconnecting with Worth Outside of Work

A 3-Week immersion for artists, writers and creatives 9/15, 9/22, 9/29 6-7:30p

*** Only 15 spaces available. Open to all levels***


The word "yoga" comes from the Sanskrit root yuj, which means "to join" or "to yoke", how can cultural creatives reunite with a sense of worth outside of our work? Sometimes it seems as if the works of creatives are valued more highly in society than the bodies of the creatives themselves. In Backbending Over the Dollar, we will use yoga as a technology to reconnect with the worth of our bodies outside of what they can create. Each session begins with a focus on a principle of yoga, followed by practice (asana and pranayama), concluding with time to reflect through writing on a commitment that you will make to yourself celebrating the value of your life apart from your work. Join us for all three workshops ($60-$120 sliding scale) or drop in as you can ($20-$40 sliding scale).

September 15th: Ahimsa/Non-Violence
September 22nd: Satya/Truthfulness
September 29th: Asteya/Non-Stealing

Accessibility Information:
Yogalove is conveniently located 5 (long) blocks from MacArthur BART. It is one block south of 88, F, 57 & C AC Transit stops.

Parents/guardians with children over the age of 5 are welcome to bring their children so long as they are able to focus quietly on a movie with headphones on a computer, homework, games on a tablet, books etc. for the duration of the workshop. While there will not be designated staff present to provide child care, the area for children is a space adjacent to the practice space of the workshop and within close proximity (eye and earshot) of the group.

Yogalove IS NOT a wheelchair accessible or scent free space. If you are interested in this workshop and would feel cared for by this kind of environment send me a note! I am working on securing a wheelchair/powerchair/scent free space in Oakland for this same workshop later in the fall but need to gage interest to secure the proper amount of space.
