Taking Refuge in Your Body
An online course in developing a daily practice of self-care.
Renew your spirit with movement, breathwork, and meditation.
In the busyness of everyday life, it can seem like there’s no time for self-care. When we make time for mindful movement, breathwork, and meditation, we bridge the gap between mind and body and encourage personal growth.
Feel like you’re in an energy rut? Don’t have time for lengthy meditation sessions? Find exercise challenging? Make a fresh start with a smart combination of movement and mindfulness, informed by Buddhist teachings.
In 5 jargon-free segments, famed movement innovator Cyndi Lee will guide you in making self-care a vitalizing part of your day—even if you just have 5 minutes. Lee’s talks in Taking Refuge in Your Body will offer insights on applying timeless wisdom to modern life. With her yoga-inspired exercises and mindfulness-based meditations, you can experience a calmer nervous system and an overall sense of renewal.
Follow along with Taking Refuge in Your Body from the comfort of your own home, and on your own schedule; return to it as often as you like to refresh what you’ve learned and keep your practice strong.
Also included are specially selected readings from the pages of Lion’s Roar magazine.
