Body Image workshop: January 10, 2009

How we view our bodies is largely influenced by the stories we tell ourselves about them. Through yoga, body memory, and writing, explore the origin of our personal body stories and how those stories shape our physical journey through life.

Join us for an early evening of writing and yoga with Blooma Teacher Cori Levin and writer Roxanne Sadovsky.

About your guides:

Cori Levin welcomed yoga into her life in 2005 when she needed guidance beyond the advice of family and friends. The following year, she deepened her practice while turning inward in preparation for pregnancy, birth, and motherhood. Yoga allowed her to stay present with all the beautiful changes going on inside her body. Cori completed the Corepower Vinyasa teacher training program in 2007. She continues to learn from her yoga mentors and her students, and she recognizes that her yoga journey is continuously evolving and growing. Her mentors and her students see Cori as a caring and nurturing teacher who has a true presence about herself. She teaches her students to follow their heart, both on and off the mat! Cori lives with her husband, Gennady, in Minneapolis , and she is proud that yoga has become the foundation of her and her daughter Zoraya’s life.
