Being in the Now, or what we often call the present moment, is one of the most powerful practices of life (or Yoga). Paradoxically, when we learn how to be in the Now, we deepen our ability to learn from the past and plan for the future. The book, The Power of Now, is a masterpiece that aligns beautifully with ancient yogic teachings. I have spent several years contemplating and meditating on Tolle's powerful teachings and wish to share my insights and connect his work to the practice of asana, meditation and yogic philosophy. Come spend the weekend with us as we explore these teachings through our asana practice, group discussion, and most importantly, and through grounding through the body.
Topics We Will Explore:
Why be present?
How goal setting plays a roll in being present.
Learn story's and myths that offer simple examples of the power be being in the Now.
Explore how the teachings such as Patajali Yoga Sutra and the Bhagava Gita relate to being Present.
The experience of Now as an in-the-body experience.
Using awareness to refine your yoga poses.
Explore how being present is powerful to us as yoga teachers and students.
Understanding how the Now makes us more "Happy" or what we call in Yoga "Full".
Do you have a mind or does your mind have you?
Exploring complimentary opposites and how that can guide us to "truthfulness".
