Emotional Anatomy of Yoga:  From feeling to healing    As one enters the yoga practice we become most familiar with the physical aspects of the practice from the poses down to the physical parts of the anatomy involved in getting into and out of the poses. As our practice evolves and deepens, we are invited into a relationship with the emotional aspects of our practice and body. We notice the fluctuation of our feelings as we practice on and off the mat. Instead of turning away from them, what happens when we lean in? Not only does yoga offer the opportunity to heal physically as weak muscles become strong and inflexibility turns into mobility but as we become curious about how we feel, we experience healing in the emotional layers of our beingness as well. We learn to use yoga to gain deeper insight into how the emotional layers link with the physical body to draw us deeper into our wholeness as multi layered beings. Where do unprocessed emotions go in our body? Is there a deeper meaning to a tight psoas that may provide an opportunity to broaden our understanding of our experiences of our bodies and the history they keep. Join Jill for a weekend of deep inquiry into the emotional layers of the body. Learn how this practice can evolve into a healing practice for more than just your physical body by teaching you to listen and care for your body in profound ways.  This workshop will involve:  -Body meditation-learn how to listen and decode to your body's messages  -Tools for emotional regulation and self-care on and off the mat  -Asana focused sessions to target key areas for physical and emotional unlocking: the psoas, the hips/low back, the shoulders and the heart  -Self reflection and inquiry  Register at  yoyo yogi

Webinar: Deep Dive into the SouL: A Webinar on Pluto

Sunday, October 29th 5-7pm PDT

images-3.jpg

Transformation, Evolution and Rebirth

As we approach the Scorpio cycle (October 22-November 21), we dance in the deep waters ruled by the planet Pluto. Pluto is the soul in astrology and deals with the souls journey of transformation, evolution and rebirth. Transformation is never easy or comfortable but I find that when we tap into Pluto's energy we can learn skillful ways to work with our challenges as we understand the meaning sometimes behind the sweat and tears. We can learn to not to fear the the darkness but to turn towards it as it can lead us into new depths of profound discovery about our soul's purpose.

Learn and discuss:

- The significance of Pluto in your natal birth chart

- Pluto in the signs and houses and what that means for you (the how and the where in your life you are going to experience the most intensity, transformation, and personal growth)

- How to work with Pluto right now in these times (where may you be experiencing the most challenges)

Cost:Sliding scale $20-50, please Venmo (jillcasepdx) or Paypal (jill@jillcasepdx.com)

**The class will be recorded so you can register and I will send you the link for the recording if you cannot be present.

**Email me to register with your birth information (exact time, date,and city of birth) and I will send you the webinar information.
