  • The Foundations Of Meditation – October 14th

    Two Part Course in the Foundations of Meditation

    Meditation

    In the last century science has proven the brain is elastic and therefore able to be trained and molded.  This idea however is far from being a revelation.  Buddhist monks and serious yoga practitioners did not require science to prove what they have been practicing and benefiting from for thousands of years.  The enormously powerful skill of meditation was not cultivated to be under utilized in the simple management of relaxation and stress reduction. It was practiced and perfected to gain deep insight into the workings of mind and into the nature of perception and reality.  Persistent and dedicated effort was needed to first understand how the mind was working and then to mold it into how it could work.
    This two part course will present the foundations for a very solid meditation practice.  We will spent time on the theory of meditation so as to understand why and how we are to establish such a practice.  Then we will spend time in the practice itself.  The practice will fuel the knowledge and then further the practice.
    Come and begin this life skill that will undoubtedly change the way your mind processes.

Some very basic anatomy will also be covered. We will discuss and learn how to use props and how to modify postures. The workshop will finish off with a very simple practice, with common postures and Sun Salutations. Also learn about the huge benefits to a regular practice!

  • Embodying The Asanas – November 18th

    What does it take to transition a posture from the surviving, hard to sustain, wish-I-was-anywhere-else  list to the fully energized, battery-charging, vitality-raising list? Asana (posture) is traditionally defined as a comfortable seat, or a position that is firm, but relaxed. Yet so often when a posture is assumed, it begins to strain the body in record timing. What this creates in the body is stress, usually in areas that start nagging us over time. This indicates that even when we can hold the pose for the length of time asked of us, we are creating a strain on the body that will evolve into a larger concern if it goes unchecked.

    Creating a healthy, integrated, balanced body that functions at its optimal level is an achievable goal through the proper practice of posture. Energizing poses so that core is engaged, breathing is even, and the weight and work of the pose is balanced in the body will do this! Learn techniques to transform your practice indefinitely so that instead of surviving a class, you are embodying the asanas.

    Asanas: warriors 1 & 2, side angle, triangle, revolved triangle, downward facing dog, upward dog, tree, half moon, crow.
