Om for the Holidays: Open Your Heart to the New Year

Sunday, 1/6, 10am to 12pm 

Back Bay


A new year is upon us and with that brings possibility. This is where intentions come in. Intentions, also referred to as Sankapla, creates a foundation of love and support as we challenge ourselves to be comfortable with the uncomfortable.

The word sankalpa, means willing, purpose, determination. To make a sankalpa is to take action with determination and purpose from a positive place. It doesn’t put our energy and passion towards an outcome, but a path to take us in the right direction.

This workshop led by Cara Gilman, will send you in that right direction. It will begin with a seated meditation as a way to ignite the listening and self exploration process. Then will move into an accessible, all levels vinyasa flow practice that will incorporate dedicated sun salutations, journaling, breathing exercises and an extra long savasana as methods of releasing and opening. This is your year. It’s time to let go of what’s holding you back and cultivate what you want to bring into your life. Be prepared to open your heart in a whole new way this new year.
