Exploring Modern Masculinity and Yoga

Sun., March 24 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Exploring Modern Masculinity and Yoga is a three-hour workshop that offers men a reprieve from performance, competition and ego.

Exploring Modern Masculinity and Yoga is a three-hour workshop that offers men a reprieve from performance, competition and ego.

It’s an opportunity for men to come together and explore modern masculinity and connection — within ourselves, with other men and, ultimately, within the other relationships in our lives.

In this session, we will tap into:

  • Our definitions of masculinity, and why and how we internalize those
  • Challenges we experience because of how we internalize those definitions and our perceived roles as men
  • How we want to redefine the experience of masculinity for ourselves
  • Yoga as an empowering technology for authentic connection on and off the mat

This workshop is an opportunity for men to destigmatize emotional expression and vulnerability, and to embrace strength through intimacy and connection.

Purchase Pass ($45)

Expectations

No formal yoga experience or training is required. A willingness to engage in group discussions, share something of your experience and insights, and allow others space to do the same is all that is asked.

What to Wear + Bring
