“Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”
Join Brandon Jacobs and Heather Gazley as they guide practitioners in this two-hour workshop. The workshop will teach students to connect with the rhythm and flow of their breath so that they may uncover their rasa or essence. The workshop is centered on the story of Hanuman and his journey in learning that although we may hurt others, make mistakes or err in our ways, we are not lost. Written deep into the threads of your heart is your truest self. And despite any deviation from our path, we are still whole, worthy, deserving and loved.
This workshop is accessible to practitioners of abilities.

Mindfulness is seeing things more clearly, and paying more attention moment to moment. To
actually transform ourselves with the wisdom of mindfulness, we have to start with the lives
we’re living from the moment we wake each day. We have to bring mindfulness out of our heads
and into our homes. And that’s where ideas can become harder to handle…
Balancing all of life’s demands can be stressful and time-consuming. It can often feel like there
isn’t enough time to really connect with our family, friends, partners or roommates—it can even
feel like another chore on our to-do list.
Parenthood brings great joy, but can also bring a new level of stress and worry. Learning how to
manage our stress more effectively is the key to improving our quality of life and theenjoyment
of this new stage.
The good news is that we can maintain a simple, uplifted home that others will enjoy and that
will provide strength for us when we need it most.
