movement & mindfulness
for mental health
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
We will explore the reality of how the mind can control our emotions and body structure. Especially during the times of Covid-19, we have had a lot more stress paired with spare time, which has given the mind a free-for-all to push our boundaries and limitations of the desired happy, healthy, and well balanced lifestyle. Kelsi will share her personal experiences with mental health and with yoga and how she has benefited from her personal movement and mindfulness practice. We will delve deeper into the why and how we all are prone to struggle with mind games along with creating a yoga practice and a stronger sense of self awareness to help battle the inner fight for a more harmonious mind and body connection.
