PACHAMAMA YOGA CEREMONY

GANESHA: CLEARING OBSTACLES
With Lily Dougher
Description: Clearing Obstacles: Release whatever it is that may be holding you back through a Ganesha inspired flow. This class will explore pranayama, mudras, meditation, and mantra to reawaken our energy and bring awareness to our obstacles and self limited beliefs. Ganesha is the elephant headed deity who symbolizes new beginnings. He is the 'gate-keeper,' and remover of obstacles. He reminds us to find the sweetness in life and remember that the best is yet to come.
Bio: Subscribing less to a particular brand name or style, Lily believes that a teacher should meet the student where they are so that the yoga is tailored to the needs of the student. Lily has been a student of yoga since she was 11 years old and is an advanced Registered Yoga Teacher (eRYT). She has completed 200hrs vinyasa yoga, level 1 & 2 Yin Yoga training, Forrest Yoga Teacher immersion, and a Mentorship with Nicole Clark. Lily finished 300hrs of Ashtanga Teacher Training with Kimberly Dahlmann (student of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois) and teacher immersions with Eddie Modestini (student of B.K.S. Iyengar). She is cerified in Ropewall and Slings from Alison West in NYC and trained and certified aerial yoga teacher. She believes in the balance of hatha yoga in the Iyengar and Ashtanga methods and is able to embrace the grace and fluidity of Vinyasa.
