Yoga is a practice that gives us space to explore the intersection of mind and body. This class is open to anyone and everyone who wants to practice some yoga. We will move through a sequence together, sharing space and breath. Yoga, initially birthed in the Indus region, is approximately 5000 years old, and it supports us in strengthening both inner and external connection. It also increases relaxation or parasympathetic functioning, which we all deserve!
There will be plenty of options provided for the various poses we will move through making it accessible for those who prefer more stillness, and those who prefer more movement. I can’t wait to practice with you all!
The session will be held at our office, located at 661 West Lake St, Ste 2S, Chicago, IL 60661. Details on how to get here will be provided upon registration.
Workout/comfy clothes are recommended. Please bring your yoga mat, blanket, or towel. If you don’t have a yoga mat, no worries! We will have some extra ones in the space for you to borrow.
Upon registration, you will be entered to win a free 60-min massage sponsored by Bloom Yoga Studio.
Snacks and refreshments will also be provided!
Victoria Doobay (she/her)
Ph.D; RYT 200
Victoria has practiced yoga from a young age, but her relationship to yoga has changed over the years. At first, Victoria was drawn to the physically challenging aspects of yoga. However, in the past 5 years, she has found meaning in the stillness and expansiveness of yoga philosophy and movement practices. As a licensed clinical psychologist at DePaul University, Victoria focuses on encouraging individuals and communities, recovering from systemic trauma, to discover physical, emotional, and spiritual connection within. While we are often taught that healing should look a certain way, she believes that healing can take many forms and look different from one person to the next. Healing isn’t linear and may change over time, as Victoria’s relationship to yoga has changed.
Victoria encourages folx to find what creates ease and roots them. This led Victoria to complete her 200hr Teacher Training at Bloom to further explore the intersection between yoga, equity, and wellness. Victoria prioritizes teaching from a trauma-informed and equity focused framework that emphasizes accessibility of yoga. Anyone and everyone can and should be able to practice yoga if they would like to. She strives to support individuals in creating connection, awareness, and balance in their practice. Off the mat, Victoria deeply enjoys spending time in nature, gardening/herbalism, biking, reading, and hanging out with her pup and loved ones.
