Come Home to Your Body is an incredible Gift of high quality self care; a restorative infusion for the body, the mind, and the soul.

CHTYBEngageThis Course is skillfully developed and led by Yoga Farm Directors Christopher Grant & Daniela Hess, as they combined their expertise and passion together to birth this efficient and nourishing Course for those who are ready to give back to themselves, and ‘take the oxygen first’. They bring a high quality of expertise to You in their instruction, imbued with humor, insightful contemplations, support, and warmth.

Your journey is this Course is both inward and outward. First, we remember and reconnect with our deepest value; self-love & self-worth. By returning and rooting down to this core value, we can BE love in action in our outer world, off the yoga mat, in All our Relations. This is true service in the World. For yourself and to all those who you encounter.

Many women today give a tremendous amount of time and caring attention to others, however they find it challenging to give themselves the opportunity to recharge their own batteries by replenishing and nourishing themselves.

Come Home to Your Body: Engage‘ integrates gentle yoga with intention and contemplations. Transform your experience of your body while preparing yourself to live an intentional life, on the mat, in your work, and in all your relations.

Our Come Home to Your Body program has four courses, one offered each quarter in the school year. You are invited to start your journey with any of the courses. We encourage students to take all four courses. 

1) Ground (January / February) – Ground Yourself Into the New Year. 2017 begins with landing, finding your feet, and living the process of becoming present in every moment. What does being present afford you? Precision, clarity and power.

2) Embody (April / May) – The journey continues inward, where we remember self-love, self-worth so that you can BE love in action. This is true service, to yourself and to those around you.   

CHTYBEmergeTimeTOLoveYourBody3) Emerge (September / October) – Every day you are born again, it’s what you do today that matters most. Once we have landed in our body, found our path into our own inner peace, our yoga then leads us back into the world through examining the power of breath and our core. This course will teach you how to use your breath and core to sustain awareness and open to new choices.

4) Engage (November / December) – The fourth course in the Come Home to Your Body series teaches you how to show up in all your relations, starting with yourself. Come Home to Your Body: Engage brings you in touch with your body, where you will ‘start the journey to living the version of you that you’d love to spend your life with’.

Some of you wish to move a body that hasn’t moved in some time; others of you may be coming back to yoga from an injury or  going through a life transition. Perhaps you have been hearing from a friend or your inner voice that yoga could be really helpful for you. Maybe you have been giving of yourself others and realize it’s due time for some tender self-care.

I appreciate the focus of the weekly lessons that continue to bring light and the feeling of improvement in my life. It’s nice to know I’m not alone in my journey and that everyone has their own story. Thank you!

Fantastic balance between the two teachers! Come Home to Your Body includes personal intention setting, meditation, and a safe environment to explore my physical and mental capacity.

Come Home to Your Body taught me the value of slowing down and not pushing quite so hard. I still work towards my goals but in a more relaxed manner. It was wonderful to have one night a week when…
