Join Jessica Bellofatto for a special workshop ‘Just Sit.’ We will explore the pose of the month chosen by Leigh Anne Eberle—Sukhasana, or easy pose, as well as a variety of hip openers so that we can learn how to sit more comfortably and have the body be less of a distraction for meditation. In typical KamaDeva fashion, this workshop will weave asana, pranayama, meditation, music, poetry, and the dharma in a seamless yogic journey that will leave you happy, sweaty, refreshed and restored on many levels.

Spring Renewal Workshop with Jessica Bellofatto at Be True Yoga

Sunday, March 29, 9-11am (Scarsdale, NY)

As we have just passed the vernal equinox on March 20, and are approaching more and more daylight hours,  just as all around us we see signs of nature waking up again, a time of renewal, rebirth, new beginnings, so too should our bodies follow this natural rhythm found in nature.  The word equinox literally means equal night, since the length of day and night are the same, and the word vernal means fresh or new like the spring.  Thus this is the time to move out of winter’s slumber and stagnation and into greater balance, as Yoga is constantly teaching us and encouraging us to find.

In this workshop with Jessica Bellofatto, we will explore balancing the opposing energies of sun and moon, light and dark, masculine and feminine.  We will learn how to work in each asana so that there is a sense of Sattva (the place in the middle), in which the body can experience maximum freedom, opening, and bliss.   Cost: $50

Location: Be True Yoga, in Scarsdale, NY
