Mythology is a narrative that explains how the world, and all its inhabitants, came to exist and are often used to teach and establish behavioral models. Similarly in yoga, the poses we embody are part of a richly diverse spiritual tradition. Many of the philosophies, rituals, and poses of yoga are adapted from various texts and myths.
In this session, you will discover the mythic deities, sages, and animals that inspired the asanas. Kimi Marin will tell the stories that inspired the yoga poses as well as discuss the greater implication of these stories on a conscious and subconscious level and how they are mirrors of your own life experience. You will learn how to theme a class around these myths and which mudras correspond to the stories. The session will culminate with an hour practice that will help you experience the myths in your body and psyche

A Note from Marci, Owner of Thrive Yoga & Wellness:
I have had the pleasure of experiencing a few of Kimi's Logic Lore workshops; and that is what they are...an experience. Kimi's literary prowess and talent for drawing her students into the stories behind the practice is nothing short of powerful. It is like story time for grown ups. Kimi draws you in and you get lost in these beautiful and symbolic tales of Yogic Lore. As you begin to move through the practice, she masterfully weaves the story into movement, allowing you to feel the power of the tales. We are so very lucky to have Kimi Marin teach at Thrive Yoga & Wellness. I can guarantee this will be an experience you will not soon forget. See you there Thrive Tribe!
