New Year's Eve Intention-Setting Practice
Sunday December 31, 2017
7:00 - 9:00pm
All Levels Welcome
Take time this New Year’s Eve to cultivate the next year. Most people make a New Year’s Resolution, and most fade after just a few months. But the essence of our resolutions are always so inspiring and positive. What happens? This year utilizing our yoga practice we will take time to tune into ourselves, become fully aware of our wants and needs, and distill those desires into our resolutions for 2018. We will root the intention into our reality and actions anchoring the ‘beyondness’ we are hoping for. No prior experience necessary and all levels of yoga are welcome. This is a deeply inward experience but we can take joy in surrounding ourselves with like-minded individuals looking to make positive shifts on this celebratory night.
Richard Fabio is certified with Yoga Alliance through the Asheville Yoga Center Teacher Training program. During the training Rich really impressed Stephanie Keach (the program director and head mama bear of the yoga center) with his natural talent. He is fully committed to yoga as a way of being, taking yoga well beyond the mat. His early yogic path began with sitting meditation. While his mind approached stillness, he struggled with chronic lower back and neck pain. Rich remembers barely reaching his hands past his knees in a forward fold. He quickly realized the importance of a strong physical practice for the process of healing. Rich is now a firm believer in the importance of proper biomechanics to restore the body to wellness. In Rich’s classes, students benefit from fun dynamic postures combined with insights from his meditation practice. Rich would like to honor and thank his many teachers and the beautiful lessons that have shaped his path, especially his dear friend and guru Gary Weber.
