Developing and Sustaining a Self-Care Practice - with Be Here Now Yoga DC

  • Be Here Now Yoga 406 8th Street Southeast Washington, DC, 20003 United States (map)

Do you think about self care but somehow don’t get around to doing it?

Are you uncertain of what self care could look like in your life?

How can you manage self care when trauma is a routine part of your personal or professional life? (e.g., #metoo, activism, discrimination, 24-hour news cycle, challenging domestic environments)

“No matter how indulgent or fancy the term may sound, self care is crucial for our physical, emotional and mental well-being.” Self care is about: allowing yourself to exhale, to slow down for a moment, to regain a sense of calm and presence - giving yourself time to regroup and recharge.

When you’ve developed and are implementing self-care routines, you’re more aware of what you are feeling. You are better able to honor your needs, manage your emotions, and be your own advocate. You ask for and accept help from others when you need it.

For some people, coming to my self-care workshop is their first intentional self-care step in a long time. Others attend because they need support to find their way back to what works for them and guidance for committing to it. I help participants identify:

  • What self care means for them.

  • What’s standing in their way of having the self care they want.

  • How to manage challenges that arise as they work to implement a self-care practice.

  • How to make self care sustainable for them.

This is a not a movement class. Be comfortable and bring a journal/ notebook and pen.
