AUTHENTICITY

(13 MINUTES)

Enjoy a progressive body scan to relax tension and anchor you in your physical body.

Instructor: Erin Brandao is a Dallas-based, 500-hour certified yoga and meditation teacher. Erin found her way to mindfulness meditation through college yoga classes, where her favorite part of class quickly became the last posture: resting meditation, or ‘savasana.’ In response to personal challenges, Erin deepened her commitment to yoga and mindfulness practices. However, the first time someone suggested Erin could be a teacher herself, she laughed and said no way. Good thing the universe has a sense of humor too, because Erin is now a highly qualified teacher, teaching not only students but also other teachers. The practice of mindfulness has given Erin so many gifts, including physical health and mental peace. Erin’s mission is to share these gifts with her clients through authenticity-themed meditations that include mindful visualization and relaxation.
