Anusara Yoga SPOOKtacular Halloween Class

Anusara Yoga SPOOKtacular Halloween Class Plan + Theme + Sequence

Halloween is a time of courage! Where spooky things often jump out at us, our heart quicken and we feel alive! What can be even more scary then a haunted house or a scary movie is unveiling the masks we wear on a daily basis. These daily masks we wear to protect ourself let's us feel safe. Taking off our masks, being vulnerable, authentic and honest takes courage, connects us to our heart and let's us feel alive! Alive and real. It's scary but a quote I love is "magic happens outside of our comfort zone". While everyone else is dressing up for Halloween in todays yoga class let's dress down. Let's push ourself outside our comfort zone, take off our masks and unveil the magic and beauty of our hearts.
