Depression can feel like a heavy blanket hanging over your head that you just can’t quite lift off. Your body can feel sluggish and weighted while your thoughts can be sticky, negative, and looping. Mindfulness practices can bring an alternative to experiencing those thoughts and being able to let them be just be thoughts. While supportive movement practices can help to move stagnant energy around.

RAIN Meditation

Masterclass

Schedule 

For Uncomfortable Feelings 

September 14, 2024

Offered In-Person and Virtually

The feeling paradox is the more we try to resist a feeling the longer the feeling lasts and when you allow a feeling you get to move through it quicker. How the heck do you do that? Especially when a feeling is uncomfortable and maybe even triggering. The practice of RAIN is a mindfulness and self compassion based practice to help you sit with uncomfortable feelings and be.

RAIN is an acronym for

Recognize
Allow
Investigate with Kindness
Nurture with Compassion

Here's what our time will look like together...

 In this 75 minute practice Angela will guide you through 15 minutes of education on RAIN, 10 minutes of grounding breathwork, 30 minutes of guided meditation, and closing with journaling prompts reflection. For this workshop you will be asked to identify a mildly uncomfortable emotion with an experience that was not intense so to work on.

Meet the teacher

This is an educational and experiential yoga + movement workshop and is not mental health therapy. This workshop is for educational purposes and serves as an adjunct service for any mental health work you may be doing. We will not be assessing, diagnosing, or treating.

Is this therapy?

If you identify as someone in recovery from disordered eating or an eating disorder and you are looking to build your knowledge and increase your embodied awareness through yoga and movement. You need to be medically stable and we require that you have a therapist and/or a registered dietitian you are working with.

Who can attend the workshop?

Our yoga and meditations aim to be accessible meaning we teach by making yoga shapes accessible to your body utilizing supports.

This will be a mat yoga class specifically. Range of motion and ability that allows for getting down and up from the flow will be needed. A chair version of this program is in development.

What if I have never done yoga or meditation before?

We understand that treatment and care for an Eating Disorder is expensive. Which is why we have partnered with Project Heal as part of their Healer's Circle to provide 1 scholarship spot for somebody who is experiencing financial hardship and may qualify.
