EXPLORATION x DESIGN PRESENTS: Yoga Fusion & The Art of Listening
Event on 2017-09-15 09:00:00
2 Hour Power Session, Yoga Fusion & The Art of Listening YOGA FUSION Our bodies are the closest form of perfected design we have at our disposal for inspiration and growth. When we practice wellness we are cultivating the intuition necessary to take care of ourselves. Our goal is to be our most efficient selves so we can have energy and time for work and play. We mix traditional yoga poses with Pilates, resistance training and motivating music. This blending of techniques focuses on combining mind and body exercises with the benefits of strength, aerobics, balance and flexibility. WANT TO ADVANCE YOUR CAREER? IMPROVE YOUR RELATIONSHIPS? REDUCE STRESS? Often we think we’re listening, but really we’re running translation in our head. We paraphrase meaning so quickly that we miss critical words. Thus running the risk of missing the point entirely. And really wasting a lot of time and energy. The art of listening is a basic skill that requires practice. Basic doesn’t mean listening is easy. In fact, it can be extremely challenging. What makes it basic is it’s universal application for just about any situation. The number one source of conflict is ineffective listening. By learning how to listen effectively you will learn how to deepen your design practice and leadership skills. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN This intensive 2-hour session is about exploring through meaningful contemplation the qualities of authentic design; as well as, the deeply unique nature of your own personal design practice. You will be guided through an excercise that will provide you with the building blocks to tap into your well of compassion and empathy. Our program will teach you the art of listening and how to incorporate it into your daily practice. SEPTEMBER 15, 9AM - 11AM Join us for an energizing two-hour session. We'll begin with an hour of yoga fusion that incorporates our signature Mind + Body and The Art of Listening programs. Followed by digging deeper into simple ways to achieve more effective dialogue. Leadership starts by listening to others and using other peoples ideas to lead the best possible solution.
