[Live Streamed] New Year’s Attunement: Reclaiming Joy with Richard Guevara
January 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am| $25
Reclaim what it is to know Joy, as we explore the balance between strong, stabilizing effort and the glorious ease of stillness. This workshop will encourage opening in your body, ease in your mind, and softening in your heart. The intention is to celebrate your wholeness in a well-rounded, mindfully-moving flow.
Rather than looking at what you want to change or fix in this New Year, let’s celebrate that each day of this life is truly a gift!
Let’s begin 2021 together, practicing all of your most beloved poses. We will “toast” this miraculous practice, the uniqueness of you and the blessing of this community. Expect a strong, steady vinyasa experience including Pranayama (breathwork), a short philosophy discussion on Abhyasa & Vairagya (to Practice & to Accept What Is), and short meditations.
“I am filled with quiet joy for no reason save the fact that I’m alive. The message I receive is clear – there’s no time to lose from loving, no place but here to offer kindness, no day but this to be my true, unfettered self and pass the flame from heart to heart. This is the only moment that exists – so simple, so exquisite, and so real.” ~ Danna Faulds
We hope to see you on the mat as we come together to cheers to community and abundance in this upcoming year.
Date & Time: Jan. 1st, 2021 @10am-11:30am

About the instructor: Richard Guevara
Richard Guevara is certified to instruct and guide his students through alignment based vinyasa and restorative yoga. He completed two separate 200 RYT trainings, including Annie Carpenter’s SmartFlow training. He plans to complete his 500 hour certification within the year.
As a former athlete who suffered multiple injuries resulting in chronic pain, he found comfort and relief through his yoga practice. It became such a vital part of his life that he decided to enroll in teacher training; he has been an active instructor ever since. His style of yoga is smooth, alignment-based and favors breath over movement. He believes each movement is a pose in itself stemming from the core. He avidly believes in yoga’s ability to restore and heal the body as well as the mind. Richard loves to challenge his students and show that regardless of fitness level, anything is possible with practice. He also aims to have his students leave his class energized with renewed or continued faith in their ability to find comfort and release in his sessions.
Richard is an avid Pacific North West overall outdoor enthusiast as well as a mountaineer, passionate climber, acroyogi, and cyclist. You can count on finding him outside rain or shine.
