Yoga Asana Practice
Each day will include a simple yoga practice with morning sunrise yoga and afternoon restorative and yin yoga. This will allow you to connect to your body, mind and spirit as one, allowing a deeper integration of the meditation, rapture and mindfulness practices. Yoga practice is geared towards all levels of yogi's, even if you have never done yoga before you will find our morning and restorative yoga practices will deepen your connection to your whole and sacred self and ever present Divine Source within.
Pranayama & Meditation
Each morning we will practice a new pranayama, as well as our relaxation breaths followed by a meditation to bring forth mindfulness, train the mind to find quiet and peace as we deepen and integrate the energies of the asana practices. When yoga began over 5K years ago, it solely consisted of breath and meditation. A couple thousand years later the guru's discovered adding movement prior to meditation helped students find stillness. We will practice stillness in the same way each day.
Foundational Yoga Classes
In our foundational courses we will learn the stages of a yoga pose, setting our foundation, getting into proper alignment, creating our intention and lines of energy, as well as adjusting and modifying the pose. We wrap everything up with the life force energy of our breath.
Yoga History & Definitions
We will be learning about hatha yoga history as well as Ecstatic Yoga lineage. We will also bring the wisdom of the yoga sutras for a deeper connection to yoga and it's history. Finally we will have fun bringing in ancient yogic hand mudras, their uses and benefits.
In our three analytics classes you will learn the logistics of getting into and teaching a yoga pose properly including your foundation, alignment, intention, any modifications and adjustments while bringing prana, breath and life force into the pose. We will cover poses from Sun Salutation, Warrior Flow, and several floor poses.
We will conclude each day with an opportunity to open your heart and let your spirit soar as we join in rapture meditation together to beautiful music. Allow the waves of rapture immerse you and fill you with light, love, beauty and grace. Simply sitting in the meditation and joining with other's who are experiencing rapture invites you to dive into the energy of the ever-expanding heart felt rapture. No experience necessary.
