Everything that is alive pulsates with energy. We carry with us the emotional energy created y our internal and external experiences – both positive and negative. Traumas are held within our bodies as physical or energetic blockages. So we must create a space to let these traumas go. Using Yin Yoga, self reflection and ritual, this is a journey to find surrender so we may energy lighter, brighter and more fully alive.
