August 27: Introvert Workshop and Yoga with Lisa Avebury and Amy Smart
Come join Lisa Avebury, healer, self proclaimed introvert activist and creator of Sacred Introvert Retreat Tours, to find out a bit more about what makes introverts unique and special. We’ll also debunk some myths about introverts along the way. Introverts are natural meditators. Their propensity towards quiet and peace means they are drawn to a practice that promises to provide a sense of portable home wherever they are. Because they often live in their minds the monkey chatter that exists has a more difficult time shutting off and they often shut down within our hyper stimulated society. In this workshop, we will uncover a few practical tools to honor you if you are an introvert, or to help you understand introverts better, if you are not. This workshop will begin with a short Kundalini Yoga Kriya led by Amy Smart. Yen Yoga in Traverse City, 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
