Event description

Description

Use conflict resolution skills, non-violent communication principles, and yogic practices to manage, harness, and communicate emotions with clarity and compassion for yourself and others.This eight hour workshop explores myths and truths about emotions, summarizes the science behind emotional intelligence, and presents a somatic approach to conflict resolution. Learn breathing and yogic techniques to get out of mental narratives and dialogues and explore body-practices that honor the intelligence of emotions so that emotions can be communicated clearly, authentically, and in ways that build trust.

Be prepared to breath, move, communicate, and learn. Wear comfortable clothing and bring an open mind.

FAQs

Yoga Outreach is piloting a sliding scale for fees for this workshop.

Here is a general guidelines about how we are pricing the sliding scale to help you determine where you fall on it.

  • The highest dollar cost reflects the true cost of the class. It is the cost that we would charge all students in the absence of a sliding scale. If you have access to financial security, own property or have personal savings, you would not traditionally qualify for sliding scale services. If you are able to pay for "wants" and spend little time worried about securing necessities in your life, you have economic privilege and power in our community. This price is for you.
  • The middle cost reflects the practitioner's acknowledgement that paying the full cost would prevent some folks from being able to attend, but who do not honestly find themselves reflected in either descriptions for the highest cost or the lowest. If you are struggling to conquer debt or build savings or move away from paycheck to paycheck living but have access to steady income and are not spending most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc., you belong here. If you, however, can ask others for financial support, such as family members, partners, or friends, please consider using those personal resources before you use the resources of the sliding scale and limit opportunities for others.
  • The bottom cost represents an honest acknowledgment by the teacher and practitioner that there are folks whose economic circumstances would prevent them from being a part of classes if there was not be a deliberate opportunity made for them to access services at a cost that is reflective of their economic realities. If you struggle to maintain access to needs such as health care, housing, food, child care, and are living paycheck to paycheck or are in significant debt, you probably belong here and you deserve a community that honors your price as equal an economic offering as the person who can pay the highest tier. Even when the lower tier is still prohibitive, we will work with folks to offer extended payment plans and other solutions.

Typically, there is a limited amount of slots for classes offered at the middle and lower end of the scale. Please be mindful that if you purchase a price at the lowest end of the scale when you can truthfully afford the higher ticket prices, you are limiting access to those who truly need the gift of financial flexibility. Being honest with yourself and your financial situation when engaging with sliding scale practices grows strong and sustainable communities. *Adapted from wortsandcunning.com/blog/sliding-scale
