Threads of Connection: Restoring Yourself and the Planet through Practice with Diana M. Hulet
Our time on the mat is a place where the invisible landscapes within the body unfold, shimmer, and reveal themselves. From the outside, one might never know what is felt and sensed within each shape and breath. Connections become apparent as nervous systems downregulate and they extend beyond our identification with being an individual self. Environment justice is social justice. The emerging dialogue about climate, biodiversity, pollution and suffering can be overwhelming, and solutions rarely come from reactive minds.
In this hour long accessible yoga class, Diana will guide you through postures inspired by the natural world and allow time for contemplation and deep rest. Yoga serves as the invitation to inhabit the body again, and encounter a sense of belonging here on the planet. From this place, a real conversation can happen.
Discernment, or viveka, arrives with consistent practice, and presents the opportunity to study how each of us is implicated in environmental injustices. What has been hidden comes to clarity and when issues become seen, taking action is possible. For some, action will look like metta meditation and for others, getting active within local environmental justice movements.
However we choose to engage our yoga, it is also imperative that we remember joy and let our gaze fall upon the mystery and wondrous aspects of being alive here and now. Diana will close practice with a guided meditation, and then open up a dialogue for discussing topics further or for any questions.
