[Live Streamed] New Year’s Eve Practice: Touching into Our Resilience with Alia Swersky
Dec 31, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $45
Special Online Holiday Practice with Alia Swersky
This special New Year’s Eve practice is an opportunity to connect with your inner resources as a way to cultivate resilience and to move with the inevitability of change. There will be time for quiet, a listening inward that will seamlessly merge into a mediative movement flow. Our practice together is an invitation to slow down and to move with grace and humility.
We will be sharing a space with others through the virtual realm while moving in silence as well as times be accompanied by music. We will seek to make beauty, connection, and intention with ourselves and each other in real and authentic ways.
Class will also include some time for writing and reflection and culminate with a meditation. Please dress in layers and have a journal or notebook.
Props required are:
✓ Yoga mat
✓ 2 yoga blocks

About the instructor: Alia Swersky
Alia’s love of yoga and awareness practices root back to her childhood when she was introduced to learning yoga, Sufism, and meditation from her mother. A life long study of movement and the body guides and inspires her teaching and practice.
Along with practicing yoga, Alia has dedicated much of her life to studying, teaching and performing contemporary dance and dance improvisation. She has been on faculty at Cornish College of the Arts in the dance department since 2005 and has been teaching yoga for 15 years.
Her classes interweave several awareness and movement disciplines including a myriad contemplative and somatic movement practices, Yin Yoga or the yoga of stillness, improvisational and intuitive movement play, and a Vinyasa style of yoga.
Alia’s classes encourage you to compassionately open to the challenges and the joys of being in your body. Emphasis is placed on resting attention in the body and breath, opening to what is there, and from that tuned in place deepening awareness of the structural alignment and energetic aspects of the body.
