Your Enlightened Pelvis
…4 week series for women starting February 27th at 6:30 pm
Every woman holds her story, her ancestral story, and usually the story of her tribe in her body. The problem is that the busy modern woman hasn’t been given tools to release the heavy emotions and unlock the powerful secrets she holds. “Light-In Your Pelvis” is where the physical meets the spiritual.  It will connect each woman to her body to “lighten” the collective and personal trauma and unlock the secret sacred power held but rarely called forth. Expect to experience more physical light-ness, improved yoga posture awareness, pelvic mobility, and greater ease in managing and understanding various conditions.  Women participants only, please. Suggested Reading: Wild Feminine by Tami Lynn Kent. The course/series will be taught by Ruth Elliot, Physical Therapist and owner of Asheville Holistic Physical Therapy. (www.ashevilleholisticpt.com)
