Meditation is a powerfully healing practice that takes the scattered pieces of our actions and awareness and brings them back into a state of wholeness. Yoga teaches us to access this wholeness in both stillness and movement.
Immerse yourself in five delicious days of heartfelt practice and self-inquiry as you gain the tools and understanding to become a more present, authentic, and skillful guide for others.
In this five day intensive, we will dive into the foundations of meditation and mindfulness practices, as well as the balanced and deeply meditative practices of Yin Yoga and slow, strengthening vinyasa flow.
Whether you are a yoga teacher or a practitioner simply looking to deepen your understanding of these time tested practices, this immersion is sure to inspire!
In this workshop you will learn:
• The foundations of meditation (theory and practice)
• Yin Yoga theory and practice
• The use of asana as a moving meditation
• Transformational breathing techniques to calm the nervous system and steady the mind
• How to create balanced sequences for all levels
• The use of touch and purposeful hands-on adjustments
• The human subtle energy system
Be prepared to cultivate…
…a steady and accessible meditation practice
…a willingness to open your heart and your mind (beginners mind!)
…a strong, grounded and flexible body
…a deeper understanding and acceptance of yourself and others through dedicated practice and and self inquiry
