Fierce Light Yoga
Wednesdays, July 20 - Aug 17
Location: Powderhorn Park Rec Center
Inspired by the documentary film FIERCE LIGHT: When Spirit Meets Action, this class will explore ways to ground, center and power yourself as an activist/revolutionary/artist/member of a burgeoning movement towards global peace and abundance. We'll work with yoga, mind-body centering practices, powerful breath work, energy clearing and guided meditation. Learn ways to release feelings of isolation and smallness and begin to live by creative power. If there's interest, we'll practice using creative expression (writing, art, song) to channel inner light into transformative action in your community, movement, family, ecosystem.
Beginners and experienced yoga students both more than welcome, AND please don't feel that you need to already be an 'activist' to benefit from the class... if you feel drawn towards greater engagement with the present moment, want to root down into your passion and power, to find your cause and your stake in our gorgeous hungry tenuous world, come on down to Fierce Light Yoga!
Please bring a yoga mat and a blanket (if you can...if not let me know and I'll find an extra mat/blanket for you).
"We never thought it could get this bad, but we never imagined it could be this good. That the human could display such incredible creativity and connectivity and ingenuity as is happening now in this movement that has no name, in this great turning." -Joanna Macy

Hello! I'm a poet and yoga teacher living in Powderhorn Park. I'm a Yoga Alliance certified yoga instructor and since last fall have been teaching ALCHEMY: Yoga for Creativity in community spots around the cities (http://alchemyoga.tumblr.com), as well as at a studio called Yoga Bella in Chanhassen. I've also earned an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Minnesota and have written a book of poems called SURGE, a field guide to a nuclear landscape and how to be a failed girl. You can read two of my poems here: http://www.midwayjournal.com/Feb11_CurrentIssue.html. What's my passion, my cause?? Right now I'm still on my way to that discovery, but I'm drawn to the practice of herbalism as subversive women's medicine, and this fall will be a Shamanic Herbal Apprentice with herbalist Susun Weed in Woodstock, NY. I also feel deeply that yoga and creative expression can nurture a soulful self, one who can rise up and join the world in healing and revolutionary ways.
