Practice You is a beautiful journal created by Elena Brower. This journal will help you discover and rediscover yourself, stay on track with your intentions, refine your listening, elevate your inner dialogue, and meet yourself with love and compassion.
The beginning of a new year is a great time to reflect and set intentions. This journal will invite you to practice YOU, by reconnecting with yourself, refining your voice and vision, and recognizing what makes your heart happy, and maybe do more of that! 

‘A Journaling Workshop to PRACTICE YOU’ is divided in four self-study segments:
✨ATTENTION: I am, I feel, I do
✨PRESENCE: I love, I speak 
✨INTENTION: I see, I understand 
✨BREATHING: I trust, I serve

This workshop includes your very own ‘Practice You’ journal!
We will explore the benefits of journaling, self-care, and you will be guided through a series of meditations to tune in with yourself and let the journaling flow! 
Also...We will be using 9+ essential oils during this workshop to add another layer of intention to the themes/segments above. Each essential oil has been carefully chosen to match the themes and provide you emotional/healing support. Students will be offered to pick their favorite essential oil and receive a sample to continue the journaling at home!

Feel free to bring your yoga mat or borrow one from the studio. We will spend most time on our mats (with all the props you like). Also, chairs and ‘tv tables’ will be available to keep you comfortable (please message me if you like this option😊)

*******Important: Please bring pens, markers, pencils, etc*******

Prana or piezioelectricity or energy or vitality or chi etc.
