Our lives are full of to do lists, responsibilities, plans, and goals. Make some time to come back to yourself in the here and now, still your mind and calm your nerves by combining movement awareness and breath. The RESTORE AND FLOW workshop is about giving yourself the gift of self-care while also giving compassionately to Habitat for Humanity International.
The Workshop, taught by Nari Malkhasyan, is a 90 minute combination of slow, deep, nourishing yoga flow, meditation, and a cuddle session with the bolster for some restorative yoga, leaving you in a blissful extended Savasana.
All proceeds go to Nari’s Habitat for Humanity Global Village trip to Argentina in the Summer of 2017. This is Nari’s 5th trip with Habitat, and 2nd as a team leader.
After the financial crisis of the recent years poverty and income inequality have surfaced as serious issues in Argentina, particularly in the suburbs of Buenos Aires, where many people live in slums. 1 in 4 Argentinians lives in poverty, with an income of less than US$100 per month. Inadequate housing, insufficient public investment, social and economic instability, migration, etc. are all factors that take a toll on the availability of adequate housing in Argentina. Global Village teams travel to Argentina, among over 40 countries, to work alongside communities, and build housing solutions. Habitat strives to build a world where everyone has a decent place to live.
So serve yourself and serve others by joining us for the RESTORE AND FLOW Workshop on Saturday, October 22, 2016, at 1:30 pm. The recommended donation is $20, cash or check made out to Habitat for Humanity International.
Nari began her yoga journey 10 years ago when she first stepped on the mat seeking an escape from the stresses of her daily life. Instead, the practice made her feel more connected to life and to her true self. It gave her a new awareness and allowed her to appreciate the physical aspects of yoga as well as the mental ones. Nari received her RYT 200 training from Inner Power Yoga in Northern Virginia, and has had the good fortune to practice with teachers such as Schuyler Grant and Isauro Fernandez. Her teaching is inspired by her background in Iyengar and fueled by her natural desire to marry the body and mind with breath and movement. Nari teaches with compassion, making yoga practice accessible to students at all levels, while encouraging them to challenge their limits and discover their own possibilities. Outside of her yoga practice, Nari is a vegan, a traveler, and a runner with a few half- and one full-marathon under her belt. Now she has her sights set on ultra distances.
