Red Tent

“Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves.” ― Carl Gustav Jung
Living within a patriarchal society lends to a suppression of a woman’s true self, needs, and desires. As these get pushed deeper, who we are splits into what we show to the world and what we suppress in ourselves. False beliefs, which are reinforced by images on social media, destroy our inner life while we try to satiate our needs by feeding our ego selves. Come peel back the layers to get to know your Shadow–the unconscious part of your personality–to come into union with all the layers of the Self.
This workshop will address the koshas (5 Layers of Being), Carl Jung’s concept of the Shadow, and the kleshas (5 causes of suffering), and how they inform how we as women interact with others and view ourselves.

Tamika embraces student agency and body diversity to build ashé (transformational energy) through authentic asana and meditation practices, which are informed by the yoga sutras in support of the individual’s physical, mental, and emotional goals.
Tamika’s yoga journey began in 2001 with a home practice. She has since obtained 200 and 300 hour certifications with yogaOne Studios, and additional formation in Yin, Restorative and Yoga Nidra. As her journey has been informed by chronic pain and injuries, the very human battle between shame and compassion, and love for the practice and philosophy of yoga, Tamika is committed to sharing yoga for transformation in schools, workshops, trainings, and retreats around the world.
