Gratitude with the Guinossos 2019
November 28 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
A Thanksgiving Day Yoga Workshop with Pete and Stephanie Guinosso
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
Practicing Gratitude will guide you in exploring the powerful practice of mindful appreciation, and how such a practice can open you to a life of grace. In this workshop we will use yoga as a mechanism to explore the transformative emotion of gratitude while utilizing deep hip releases to detoxify the mindbody of negative emotions. We will explore heart opening backbends to feel where joy and gratitude reside in our bodies.
At the end of this workshop, you will have a platform on which to explore this sense of gratitude in your daily life, helping you to connect into the abundance that is available to you in your relationships, and in the world.

Stephanie Guinosso discovered yoga following a knee injury playing college basketball in 1998. After pursuing traditional rehabilitation that did not lead to a full recovery, she tried yoga as a last resort. Yoga helped to break up the scar tissue, increase strength and flexibility, and ultimately heal the injury. She has been practicing yoga ever since! Trained as a Forrest Yoga Teacher in 2008 under Ana Forrest, Stephanie inspires students to develop an intuitive body awareness, work intelligently at their physical edges, and use the gifts of yoga to walk through life with a little more ease and a lot less struggle. She currently assists her husband, Pete Guinosso, on numerous local and international retreats. She also teaches yoga through Lemonade – A Yoga Program for young men in juvenile hall.
