Gentle Yoga for Compassion
with Nandini Narayanan

Gentle Yoga as Self-Compassion
As we transition in to a new year, may we honor the changing seasons and rhythms of nature with a pause for self-blessing and self-compassion. Self-Compassion rooted in ancient wisdom practices is currently being studied by scientists and found to be a skillful tool in promoting physical health, mental well being and relational harmony.
• Enjoy a breath-focused Yoga asana practice to develop and refine your skills to look within, and invite thoughtfulness and openness to abide in your body and heart with friendliness toward yourself.
• Inquire within and discover how elegant, simple Yoga movements and gestures may cultivate compassion and respect for where you are as you are, without striving to alter the present, but rather accept your wholeness in this moment.
• Learn about the modern science on Self-Compassion as you build daily Self-Compassion rituals through Yoga, poetry, affirmations and symbols that enhance your sense of belonging and connection to our shared human experience deeply rooted in the heart of compassion.

Maitri karuna mudita upeksanam sukha duhkha punya apunya visayanam bhavanatah citta prasadanam A peaceful mind results from a mental attitude of friendship towards those who are content, of compassion towards those who suffer, of joy towards virtuous individuals, of equanimity towards and disengagement from those who act poorly. ~Yoga Sutras 1.33
