"When you don't go within, you go without." - Yogi Bhajan
In the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Yoga can be defined as the restraining of consciousness from noise and false perceptions. These false perceptions are said to be the basis for all of our suffering. They block us from experiencing the Wholeness of our being and from seeing our True Selves. Meditation is the practice where we learn to work with our mind to calm it and to dive deeper into ourselves finding truth, love, and wisdom. Meditation is powerful, beneficial beyond measure, and accessible to all! Just like with asana (postures), meditation takes practice and there are many different techniques you can use to meditate.
In this workshop, we will approach multiple meditation techniques with light-heartedness and practicality to help you find the ones that resonate with you. We will incorporate 10 -15min. asana practices in between each meditation technique allowing us to refresh and practice maintaining a meditative state with movement! Join us for this wonderful evening workshop full of potential for growth, knowledge, and transformation!
This workshop will be accessible to all and beneficial for every level of yoga student.
Bring some paper and a pen for note taking if you would like. Some blankets and bolsters will be provided. If you have a favorite meditation cushion feel free to bring it! Dress comfortably and be prepared to practice some asana. Bring a yoga mat, we have them available to rent at studio too.
Summer Solstice One Oh! Eight
Kali Yuga Yoga
Friday, June 20th
6:30 - 8:30pm
Join us for an uplifting seasonal practice of 108 Sun Salutations to rejuvenate and recharge as we enter a new Summer season! The Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year, full of sunlight, and also marks the first official day of Summer! By practicing 108 Sun Salutations at this time we can invite fresh perspectives, reflect, and align our intentions with what serves us the best as we move through this beautiful, fluid practice! During this workshop, you will learn much more about the meaning behind the symbolic number 108, the energetic and astronomical components of the Summer Solstice, and be invited to let this practice be personally meaningful to you in whatever way you need it to be through the setting of intentions! We will divide 108 Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar A) into four rounds of 27. There will be plenty of time between rounds for breaks and modifications will be given! This pace of this practice is set by the rhythm of your own breath cycle, so it truly is available for ALL levels!
