The Yoga of Innovation: A 5-Week Exploration of the Mind-Body-Business Connection
Do you ever feel stuck?
Stuck in your head. Stuck in the status quo. Stuck in patterns of thinking and acting that hold you back, in both your business and your life?
Like there’s meant to be more. Like bigger possibilities and the innovative answers you’ve been looking for are out there, floating just out of reach. Waiting for the fog to clear.
What if there were simple and effective ways to clear away the mental clutter and the patterns that keep you stuck?
This 5-week class series will explore the mind-body-business connection through the lens of innovation. You’ll unlock your inner wisdom and learn how to get unstuck — to rise above status quo patterns of thinking, acting, and being.
You’ll also cultivate practices that will help you:
- Embrace the unknown
- Feel more confident to take risks
- Expand your sense of possibility
- Break through limitations and perceived barriers
- Make both micro-adjustments and big pivots with ease
Each session will be a combination of workshop, yoga, and mindfulness practices. We’ll delve a little bit into the science, and a lot into active participation. The yoga practice itself will be between 45-60 minutes of each session — and it’s okay if you’ve never taken a yoga class before!
Who it’s for:
Social Entrepreneurs — startup founders; small business owners; solopreneurs and freelancers who want to make the world a better place. Especially if you know you’re meant for bigger things, and you’re willing to do something a little different to get there.
