Wisdom Yoga & Meditation Classes
Wisdom Yin Yoga is accompanied by the sound of Tibetan singing bowls. Long posture holds (3-6 minutes) create elasticity and flow of the vital force throughout the body. Mindfulness meditation instructions are incorporated in the posture practice to cultivate a quiet mind. Wisdom Yin and Yang Yoga is a dynamic flow of sun salutations, standing postures in the first half of class, and in the second half longer held postures performed. Emphasis is on strength, focus, flow, and on incorporating an intention that aligns with the 8 limbs of Yoga and Buddhist philosophy.
Stress Reduction Classes
In a Yin Stress reduction course you will learn some of the foundational practices to quieten the mind and the body, to gain more clarity of what causes stress and how you specifically react to these triggers, and you can then choose how to strengthen and cultivate those qualities which are needed to counterpoint.
The most successful recipe for a lasting and nourishing contemplative practice is: tailored practice + contemplative space = success. A quiet space is a necessity for many people to create access to relaxation, reflection and their inner lives.
Retreats & Trainings
An in-depth retreat, something longer than just a weekend is a worthwhile and transformative experience. Whether we are complete beginners or long time practitioners, a retreat offers the opportunity to pause, deeply listen, attune our body and mind through meditation and Yoga, and clarify our intentions for moving forward along our path in life.
“To intuit inner lives beneath surface lives, to inhabit many worlds at once in this world to deepen our sense of presence and therefore our natural sense of thankfulness that everything happens both with us and without us. Thanksgiving happens when our sense of presence meets all other presences” – David Whyte
