In Transition: Practice and Meditation with Brianna Bedigian

Saturday 7/16 2-4pm

Location: Be Yoga Dilworth

Sign Up Now!

This workshop will focus on shifting, transition, evolution and transformation; putting forth the question: “How do I move through change?”
The waters ebb and flow, the earth spins, day turns into night, light folding itself into darkness, darkness transmuting back to light. The cycles, the seasons and the very essence of the earth are evolution. We came here to evolve, to go beyond ourselves, to not be so set in patterns that we neither learn nor change ~ the goal is growth at its most transformative and meaningful level ~ the goal is to meet each day wanting to shift, trying to learn, to know more, to always question, to evolve to a higher understanding, being and way. The goal of this lifetime is evolution.

Please join Brianna for an experience dedicated to the beauty and power of change, transition and growth. This two-hour workshop will incorporate Yoga, Dynamic Movement, Pranayama, Guided Meditation, Aromatherapy, and Sound Healing.

Brianna Bedigian is a Yoga teacher and Energy Healer with over 15 years of teaching experience. She has cultivated a style of teaching that interweaves several modalities into a seamless offering. This layering of complementary tools fosters a transformative experience for her students.
Early bird $20, At the door $25

Location: Be Yoga Carmel

Sign Up Now!

“If a woman sits with folded hands in her lap for a few minutes every day, and feels she is a container so vast that she contains the whole Universe, she will never feel weak or have any problems. There is nothing beyond woman except God.”
-Yogi Bhajan
Women are divine energy, spirit and power. We are also holders of the home, our families and communities. We work hard. And we need each other. We need to sit and share time and space. As women, we are hard-wired to give and serve. And to be the best versions of ourselves, we must take time for ourselves and our spirit.

Join Sarah Olin — Charlotte-based Mama, coach and yogi — for a monthly donation-based meditation circle created especially for women. One evening per month, we will gather together to practice a new meditation to lift our spirits and get us connected to ourselves. There will be a 20-30 minute meditation followed by sharing.

Appropriate for all levels; beginners welcome.

Suggested Donation $5-$15
