LIVEURYOGA & SANGHA WELLNESS RETREATS PRESENT…
A Conscious Gathering:
Open Heartfelt Conversations
A 3-part virtual series to build community through love, compassion, grace and vulnerability. Using the foundations of Yoga philosophy as a base for discussion, our aim is to explore our current modern-day concerns and issues in an open and honest space. This is a community gathering to share our thoughts, hopes and fears – a true satsang. Each gathering will include a 21-day kriya based practice including breath work, mantras and meditation to continue this work together while creating a visceral imprint mind, body and soul.
Join Lisa Greenbaum & Tracy Jennings-Hill for one or all three events.

What stands in our way from having open and heartfelt conversations with friends, colleagues or those we have yet to meet? How do we exercise complicity in our friendships for fear of confrontation? In this gathering we will discuss the somatic stress response and its impact on our ability to communicate and connect with others both verbally and non-verbally.

DISSOLVING THE PERCEPTIONS OF RACE & RACISM IN ALL FORMS
When we go to the source of all spiritual concepts and practices, at the heart is love. Vedantism, at the center of Yoga philosophy, is the belief in oneness. That we are all one. That who we are on the inside is the same, all yearning for the same thing – love. Yet this concept is often discounted to something that just happens on the mat or in the studio. How can we move to the source of this love? How can we grow this love into our communities and with each other?

HEALING FROM THE INSIDE
Peace begins with you. To find this peace we must also heal from within. To process our pain and release our past traumas. Not to forget them, but to move past them, to no longer allow them to control us in the present. What are our daily practices to promote peace and release pain? How can we share this with others to build love and well-being within our communities?
Choose one session for $56 CAD or all three for $144 CAD

Founder LiveURYoga, ERYT 500, C-IAYT, YACEP, Ayurvedic Lifestyle Coach, Jyotish (Vedic Astrologer)
Tracy came to yoga because of an injury while in the Air Force over 20 years ago. After trying physical therapy and medications with no success, she found Yoga was what she needed and eventually wanted it in her life forever. Every time she thought of walking away, another milestone in her life solidified her place as a Yogi. Since then, she has followed her heart and not only completed her own training but became a Senior Master Trainer for YogaFit. Traveling all over the United States, Taiwan, Germany, Egypt and Canada to train teachers to teach yoga has been the highlight of her yoga journey because she knows it’s her dharma—giving the gift of transformation, empowerment and growth. Being a yoga teacher changed her life forever for the better and each day it’s the same gift she strives to give to everyone!
