“Waking up is not a selfish pursuit of happiness, it is a revolutionary stance, from the inside out, for the benefit of all beings in existence.”
― Noah Levine
Durga Excursions is committed to creating global collaborations for the benefit of all beings, but with a refined emphasis on supporting networks of indigenous disenfranchised groups of adolescent girls and women in Peru through our lifelong partnership with Visionaria Network.
We offer the resources for an awakened yoga practice to empower indigenous, marginalized female adolescents as they build a healthy relationship to their body, mind, and future, and find their authentic voice as the emerging next generation of powerful female leaders.
...THE PROBLEM IS REAL...
Globally, machismo and other patriarchal social norms perpetuate inequality – including unequal access to education and unequal opportunities – for women and girls.
This inequality adversely affects girls’ aspirations and self-esteem and inhibits girls’ abilities to be effective agents in their own lives and in society.
THIS IS WHERE VISIONARIA COMES IN...
EACH OF THE 4 DAYS OF YOGA FOCUSES ON A PARTICULAR
ASPECT OF EMPOWERMENT:
DAY 1: AWARENESS
Awareness: (n) is the ability to perceive, to feel, or to be conscious of events, objects, thoughts, emotions, or sensory patterns. More broadly, it is the state or quality of being aware of something.
DAY 2: VISION
Vision: (n) the act or power of sensing or anticipating that which will or may come to be; a thought, concept, or object formed by the imagination.
DAY 3: TRANSFORMATION
Transformation: (n) a complete or major change in one’s life, appearance, sentiment, and/or energy; a metamorphosis.
DAY 4: GROWTH
Growth: (n) the act or process, or a manner of growing; progressive development; increase and expansion
Each day includes a focus on each concept, opening meditations, teaching tips, awareness + alignment cues, warm up and full sequencing with photos, benefits of chosen postures, modification options, and closing circle/meditations.
In addition, the curriculum includes a bit of yoga theory and proven philosophy on “the steps of empowerment”.
