Come and reconnect with yourself in this workshop designed specifically for fathers. We will begin with an active practice to warm up the body and drop into the breath, followed by a more restorative practice in which participants will have a chance to slow down, disconnect from their parental responsibilities and reconnect with themselves. At the end of the practice, we will briefly explore meditation and how to develop a home practice in order to continue to create space and time for ourselves during busy and hectic days.
This workshop is led by Wonder teacher and father Esteban da Cruz. Read more about Esteban here:
Lost and confused about my path in life; plunging into the rabbit-hole of destructive habits; brought to the mat by an incapacitating back injury, I experienced—and then immersed myself head-first—in the physical, mental and spiritual practices of yoga and Buddhism. Since that moment, I have gone through several teacher trainings and studied with some of the most senior teachers in the Boston area. Since becoming a stay-at-home father, I have taken all the teachings passed on to me by my teachers and applied them in an ever-deepening daily home practice. If I am not practicing meditation and yoga, studying, or writing, I am sharing precious time with my beautiful family.
My backgrounds are originally in the classical Iyengar and Ashtanga lineages, though my practice has synthesized those roots with everything I have learned through the study of biomechanics and anatomy, eastern philosophy and meditation, and personal experience practicing, into a mindful slow-moving vinyasa with attention to breath and a focus on creating external alignment in order to observe internal patterns.
My goal is to guide students towards a deeper connection with themselves, so that they may begin to notice their habits and steer in a direction in which they can begin to live intentionally, from the inside-out, instead of feeling helpless to find direction in the maelstrom of the world. Ultimately, I humbly assist students as they walk their own journey of self-discovery, so that they may move towards joy, thoughtfulness, health, and fulfillment.
