Yoga for Earth Day Benefit
April 23, 2016 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$30 – $50
With Lizabeth Kashinsky
In celebration of Earth Day, join us in an exploration of how the teachings of yoga can guide us to be better stewards of the planet and help us to acknowledge both our love and pain for the world. Learn about and honor threatened and endangered native Hawaiian animals through a short yoga asana practice. Cultivate interconnectedness and loving kindness towards our world through guided meditations. This workshop is meant to empower anyone who would like to become a better activist on behalf of our island Earth.
Lizabeth incorporates ways to deepen connections to the natural world in her classes. Her classes also focus on cultivating mindfulness, compassion, and deep relaxation. She began practicing hatha yoga and mindfulness meditation in 2000. She discovered that these practices helped to still her active mind and recover from health challenges. She continues to learn the healing traditions of yoga from Rick Bernstein, one of her first yoga teachers. Lizabeth completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training at Open Space Yoga in Honolulu in 2009 and has been teaching yoga ever since. Lizabeth has also been working in the field of conservation in Hawaii since 1994 and completed a MA in Ecopsychology in 2012 at Naropa University.
