Restorative Yoga for Race Based Stress with Dr. Rona Maglian, Wednesday, February 24, 2021 6-7 pm

This gentle and soothing yoga class will offer you a calming practice of mindful movement, rest, and meditation.

This month, BIPOC communities have been pulled between celebration of events like Black History Month and the Lunar New Year, and grief related to white supremacy and the recent racist attacks on Asian elders.

To honor and support our various communities through this season, Dr. Rona Maglian is hosting this restorative yoga practice as a community care offering to BIPOC folx who may be dealing with race-based stress, anxiety, grief, or trauma. It is more important than ever to stand in solidarity against racism and to engage in community healing.

Who it’s for: This workshop is open to all self-identified BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). Folx of all genders welcome. No previous experience with yoga is necessary.

What to expect: Participants will be engaged in gentle movement, breathing exercises, and guided meditation for about 45 minutes. Participants will be asked to mute their microphones. Participants may choose to keep their videos on to cultivate connection via a shared virtual space, or keep them off as the feel comfortable. Pillows and blankets are highly encouraged. Yoga mats are optional; a blanket or bath towel will work just as well.

Price: Pay what you can, a $10-20 offering. No one will be turned away for lack of funds, please email if you need financial assistance.

Rising Strong in 2021 with Dr. Maya Borgueta, PsyD, Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator, March 13 & 20, 2021 10 am-5 pm

It’s no secret that 2020 has knocked us all on our collective asses in one way or another. We’re ready to harness that new year energy to rise from the ashes and come back stronger than ever in 2021, how about you?

This intimate two day intensive, based on the work of Dr. Brené Brown, is all about learning to recover from setbacks, challenges, failures, and disappointments. We all get knocked down—the important thing is learning how to get back up again.

Whether you’re trying to make sense of the end of a relationship, dealing with a career setback, struggling to recover from a painful failure, going through a quarter-life crisis, or trying to figure out how to rebuild after a major loss, the Rising Strong™ process can help. You’ll leave with a better understanding of how your current narrative is holding you back, and how you can move forward with courage and confidence.

Who it’s for: This is a virtual workshop for professional women who want to build resilience to struggle in their personal lives and careers. Trans, cis, and nonbinary folks who are comfortable in women-centered spaces are welcome. 

Pricing: $650 covers the two day virtual workshop and materials. Current Stella Nova therapy clients and previous Daring Way attendees receive a $50 discount. 

To sign up: To preserve the intimate nature of this workshop, space is limited to a maximum of six participants. I offer a free 30-minute consultation with potential participants to ensure the workshop will meet your needs. Please email maya@stellanovawomen.com to sign up or for more information. 

Workshop Offerings

Bring Stella Nova to your company or organization! Our workshops offer a quick hit of practical tools and insights for your life and your work. 

Self-Compassion for Ambitious Women: This crowd-favorite is Stella Nova’s signature offering. Designed just for career-minded women who struggle with harsh self-criticism. If your self-confidence feels like a roller coaster ride sometimes, this is for you! An interactive, 90-minute introduction to the science and practice of self-compassion, with practical tools to take home. 

Holistic Self-Care for Work and Home: This isn’t face mask & bubble bath self-care. Holistic self-care is about learning to show up for ourselves in each domain of our life—our careers, our relationships, our physical health, our psychological well-being. This workshop will help you assess your current self-care practices, identify areas that need attention, and develop a plan for next steps.

Burnout Prevention for a Sustainable Career: The solution to professional burnout isn’t getting more sleep or taking more vacations. (Although we wholeheartedly support both!) Burnout prevention is about getting re-engaged in your career and figuring out how to align your energy with your big picture values and goals. We’ll talk about what burnout is and isn’t, identify factors contributing to burnout in your current work life, and create a plan for moving forward more sustainably.
