The Yoga of Compassion with Laura Banks

“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured.”

–B.K.S. Iyengar

Like yoga, compassion is a practice of awareness which helps us learn to be fully present and hold challenges with steadfast love. It is both an innate capacity and a skill we can train, and research shows that when we do, our body, heart, mind, and communities benefit in tangible ways.

Join Laura Banks, RYT 200 and Certified Compassion Cultivation© Training Instructor, for this online workshop which explores how the practices of yoga and compassion complement each other. Both help us live with steadiness, ease, and joy on our journey through life. A balance of evidence-based information, interactive exercises and discussion, meditation, and personal reflection will help participants bring increased compassion to their yoga practice and take the embodied wisdom of yoga off the mat and into life.

During the workshop, we will practice a compassionate body scan. If you would like to lie down for this guided practice, please have on hand what your body needs to feel comfortable and supported for up to 20 minutes.

Please note: Zoom links will be emailed to registrants 24-hours before the workshop and again 1-hour before the workshop. If you register closer than 1-hour to the event start, you may not receive the link. If you have any trouble with access, please email
