Yoga & Ayurveda

Next Workshop: Yoga for Integration 

Held: Sunday, December 3rd, 10am-1pm (at Bhagavat Life). 

 

As the colder and darker season approaches, we tend to turn our focus back inside ourselves. This is a wonderful time to explore how we can work with yoga in a way that truly addresses us holistically, on a physical, energetic, mental, emotional and spiritual/transcendent level.

 

In this workshop, we will experiment with gentle breath initiated movement sequences paired with imagery and sound to investigate a sense of unification of the various 'parts' of ourselves that we tend to use in a more 'compartmentalized' fashion in our everyday lives. 

 

  • How do the phases of our breathing influence our body and movement on one hand, and our thought processes on the other? 
  • How do different sounds and chants make us feel? 
  • Can meditative imagery bring about changes in our movement, in our breathing?
  • Are we able to internalize sound to impact our mind?

Using a gentle and playful approach, we will explore these and many other questions.

 

This workshop is for anyone who would like to dive deeper into themselves to explore different ways of re-integration. It addresses all practitioners, from beginner to long time student, as well as yoga teachers. Hand-outs will be available to facilitate home practicing of the learned tools. There will be time for questions and discussion throughout the workshop, and individual practitioners' needs are taken into consideration with alternatives offered when appropriate.

 

The workshop will include a delicious and healthful ayurvedic meal taken together at the end! 

 

Held at Bhagavat Life. 25 1st Ave, 5th Floor
