Event Description

Mainstream notions of yoga practice center around "Love and Light" or "Good Vibes Only," which are neither sufficient for the moment we find ourselves in nor in keeping with the reality of life. And even beyond mainstream yoga, our culture pushes aside grief, sadness, and disappointment, alienating us from one another and from the fullness of lived experience.

The times we find ourselves in are heavy and busy. The shifting in the world as we shift our engagement with the intensity of the deep pandemic has many people rushing back to old norms—not taking the time to honor the lessons of the pandemic nor heal from the tremendous losses we all felt.

Grief, sadness, and disappointment are unavoidable and essential parts of the human experience—gateways to deeper love, compassion, wisdom, and gratitude. This workshop will use light asana, meditation, singing bowl sound, and sangha to create sacred space for all of the grief we have been holding silently for the past several years, tapping into the energy of the season and the blessing of community to normalize the expression of grief and hold space for one another.

The way forward is through our present suffering together, not alone. Rather than feel alone with your grief and sadness, let us bear one another's burdens in love.

Through Active Peace Yoga, he offers asana and meditation classes to help others nurture peace of mind, creativity, equanimity in spirit and physical health - helping people nurture well-being as foundational, rather than an afterthought.

As part of his studies, he has authored a thesis entitled, "Yoga and Spiritual Activism: Serving Humanity from a Sense of Devotion and Love and has also been a featured speaker on new consciousness, racial justice and civic engagement for leading wellness publications, podcasts and platforms (Mind and Life Institute, CTZNWell, Wanderlust, the Be Here Now Network, the Hanuman Academy, Yoga Alliance, Upaya Zen Center among others).

In addition to his yoga teaching practice, Reggie has held many senior strategic and logistical roles across a variety of fields, ranging from global marketing, digital and community organizing, government relations, international education to Presidential campaigning.

Reggie's life work sits at the intersection of bringing more peace and balance to activists, guiding the wellness community toward being more engaged, concerned citizens and enhancing the well-being of all walks of life. Achieving this balance is how we catalyze transformative change in our society, which we are desperately in need of at this moment.
