Wild Body Workshop with Jenny Wade
Jul 16, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm| By Donation
Many aspects of our society ask us to become domesticated in the ways we inhabit our minds, emotions, and physical bodies. In order to break free and to reclaim our wildness, we can look to unconventional forms of embodiment to learn more about who we are truly meant to be.
I believe with every fiber of my being that movement and breath has a deeply rooted place in the healing journey. Movement is medicine. Wild Body is a hybrid yoga/dance/meditation/breathwork/therapy session, class is designed to clear out the stagnation in your body, so that you can have more access to your mind. Your Self. Movement is your birthright. Let’s shake off our trauma, and move through our old life-limiting stories, so that we can create new ways of being in the world.
I really hope you choose to join me to explore new, powerful ways of becoming ourselves.
Please bring your own mat, water, and willingness to be your vulnerable self.
“The doors to the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”–Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With The Wolves

About the instructor: Jenny Wade
I began my professional journey working for five years at Opal: Food + Body Wisdom, a Seattle-based eating disorder clinic. It was there I began falling in love with the process of helping women reclaim the bodies they hated. As a trained yoga teacher and licensed psychotherapist, I teach the individuals I work with to develop a deep trust in their body and inner voice in order to help them be more engaged and connected to their lives.The more I taught, the more I began to realize that this reclaiming work is not just for those struggling with eating disorders, but it’s for any individual waiting to lose another 5 or 10 or 50 pounds before they can truly love and listen to their body.
I’ve always known that I was a healer, but it’s been slowly over the past few years that my passions have clarified and begun to take on their own shape. I know I am meant to teach women how to be deeply connected to their bodies and inner wisdom. And so, Haven Yoga was born.
The yoga classes we’ve created at Haven are meant to help people not only release physical constriction in the body caused by stress, but to also release deeply held negative thoughts and emotions. Yoga is an opportunity to have a different experience of your body. Not as an object to critique, but as a part of ourselves to accept and connect to deeply.
When I’m not working, I can be found cooking and sharing delicious meals, appreciating good stories both written and spoken, practicing yoga, and enjoying family time with my sweet, hilarious husband Ben.
I’d love to hear from you. Please reach out if you have questions or comments about my work: email@example.com
