In Good Standing: Open Floor with Joseph Machado

  • Tula Yoga and Wellness 99 Snelling Avenue North Saint Paul, MN, 55104 United States (map)

Standing up is not a one-time event – it takes fortitude. In relationships, at work, in conversation, with our own habits, we are called to stand up again and again, in matters big and small. Often we have to stand alone. And anyone who has been in a long term relationship (parent, friend, child, partner) knows the power of learning the right moment to "stand down" when conflicts arise. So how do we embody this necessary practice?

In this weekend workshop we will mine the innate wisdom of our bodies to investigate:

Who do we stand behind, beside?
Where are we afraid to stand up?
What won’t we stand for anymore?
How do we stand our ground when the ground is shaking?

Let’s ask the questions together and allow our bodies to answer.

About Joseph: Joseph Machado M.A., is an Open Floor teacher, somatic therapist, and public high school teacher in the SF Bay Area. He believes it is important to cultivate curiosity in our daily lives and understands the transformative potential of living an embodied life.
