$35.00 Breath For Everyday Living
Our health at every level is dependent on having vital companionship with the breath. It's the connecting force that fuels every cell of our body and every cell beyond our body, yet, how often do you consciously engage with your breathing? How often are you aware of the breathing patterns of yourself or others? How might cultivating a personal breathing practice and increasing sensitivity to the breath make connecting into life more easeful? In this workshop we will examine what breath practices are, explore simple asanas / stretches to prepare the body for pranayama as well as a pranayama practice, and talk about how to build awareness of the breath into everyday living.
This workshop will be offered in a hybrid format, so that students can participate in person at the studio or virtually. Students attending in person must be fully vaccinated. In-studio capacity is limited to 6, so be sure to reserve your space early.
Students participating virtually will receive an email prior to the workshop with details about how to access the virtual session. If you do not receive this email or lose track of it, simply log in, navigate to the class schedule page, and click on the green camera icon next to your workshop. Questions? Email us at email@example.com.
If you need to cancel your registration, a refund will be provided minus a 20% administrative fee if you cancel at least 48 hours before the workshop. No refunds will be given within 48 hours of the workshop.

Kellie Finn is immensely grateful for her New England upbringing, family, friends, sunshine, good jokes, moon gazing, night walks, ocean breezes, lingering hugs, fresh vegetables, road trips, adjectives, and an ever growing boot collection. She has been studying yoga since a volunteer summer at Omega in 1991, and teaching classes/working privately as a Yoga Therapist since September 2001, after two years of volunteer service and study at Kripalu Institute. She is a recent transplant to the DC area where she serves as a Clinic Supervisor at Maryland University of Integrative Health's Yoga Therapy Program, writes, and continues her private practice exploring how the practices and philosophy of yoga can heal trauma and guide inpiduals into a life of communal empowerment.
Kellie's alignment based classes are infused with humor, philosophy, poetry, self-inquiry, ethical explorations, education, and tools for carrying the practices of yoga off the mat. She teaches postures in layers with consistent encouragement to listen to the brilliance of one's own body / being. She believes that the practices of yoga offer us the opportunity to connect to the Grace within ourselves such that we can move as far as possible beyond our own being to cultivate connection in the world without losing recognition of Grace. She looks forward to seeing you on the mat!
