For many of us, the holidays can be a time of stress, chaos, over-stimulation, and falling into old patterns and painful stories. In this workshop, we will explore the reasons why we regress during the holidays and how to avoid it and even thrive in this time. We'll use breath, a powerful yoga practice, grounding meditations, music and a sense of humor to prepare ourselves for the season ahead.
