Holly Troy and Sacred Folly
Exploring Love ~ Deep Play ~ Radical Self-acceptance ~ Joyful Responsibility ~ and Co-creation through yoga, writing and creativity workshops, energy, ritual, and nutrition.
We live in exciting times. With so much change happening — politically, economically, and ecologically — most of us need to reinvent the ways in which we view the world and live our lives. For many, it is a frightening time, but it is also a time of opportunity.
What if we toss away fear and approach change with a sense of playful curiosity, relaxation and fun?
Sacred Folly is focused on the creative aspect of being alive; honoring that which our society would deem frivolous – Love, Creativity, Community, Connection.
Holly believes it is important to approach change with a sense of playful curiosity, relaxation and fun. Hopelessness and despair are immobilizing. If people feel good about themselves and their abilities to make sound decisions based on their intuition and innate creativity, then they can take positive action.
Everyone is innately creative, and, if given a nurturing space to explore, may uncover long-forgotten talents or discover new ones.
Holly’s approach to yoga and creativity is based in compassion and a spirit of sharing and honoring one another. As an artist and musician, what thrills her most is co-creation and the timelessness of trust and open wonder. Food and nutrition are about experimenting with what makes the body feel fantastic and what (of course) tastes wonderful.
Holly is offering three workshops at the Flagstaff Yoga Festival: Journaling through the Chakras (Parts 1 and 2) and Sivananda Yoga.
Journaling through the Chakras will use the major chakra system as the "backbone" for self-exploration through journaling. Creative visualization, gentle movement, sound, sensory stimulation, and writing prompts designed to wake up specific chakras will inspire a series of timed writings. Journaling is a form of unfolding--participants will benefit from a deeper sense of self-awareness, relaxation and compassion.
The yoga workshop will be based in Sivananda combined with Holly’s compassionate and gentle approach to hatha yoga.
Visit Holly at the marketplace! She has a meditation cd called Journey through the Chakras, and tea and herbs from the Amazon Rainforest. She is sharing space with The First Move – look for very groovy t-shirts!
