Modern life can be stressful and we all need reminders and techniques to foster deeper connections with ourselves and our world - to expand our resilience and live our most vibrant lives. The Take Care Club is formed from a deep desire to take care of ourselves and each other; to hold space for our souls’ callings and develop nurturing practices of self-love.
The Take Care Club is a 2 hour workshop-style gathering held once monthly that focuses on practices of self-care through the lens of yoga. Each month, the TCC is centered around a different theme relating to self-care, and we will explore a variety of practices relating to that theme. You can expect movement practices suitable for all levels, discussion, mindfulness exercises, guided journaling, breathing exercises, community, and more. Each month you will also receive a take-home package for your own home practice.
WHO IS THE TAKE CARE CLUB FOR?
You recognize that self-care is not an act of selfishness, but a way to live life from a more connected, nourished, and inspired place. When you take care of yourself first, you become more available - physically, emotionally, mentally, and energetically - to connect with others.
No previous experience is necessary to join the Take Care Club, just a desire to create more space for self-care and love in your life through the practice of yoga.
