Yoga & Meditation
This class is similar to other Yoga I classes but will provide a longer meditation--usually 20 minutes--and will incorporate themes throughout class that guide the student in a "Meditative Lifestyle". This class is open to all, as well as students in the Meditation Program. This class is for the "beginners mind," whether you are brand new to Yoga, desire a simple pace, or would like to return to the fundamentals of Yoga. Class includes basic pose alignment, and a variety of breathing, relaxation and meditation practices. In Classical Yoga style, each class begins with a brief sharing of Yoga philosophy, creating a simple theme for each class. These offerings help the Yoga student understand the holistic science of Yoga, and how to bring it into our daily lives and everyday actions. Possible topics draw from yogic texts as well as the experience of teachers and students, including the healing benefits of yoga to body, mind and spirit; the daily practice; mindfulness; ethical behavior; nutrition and cleansing; positive thinking; mastery of our thoughts; energy work and enlightenment.
