This six-week class series is for yoga practitioners who want to deepen their yoga asana practice to include and support mindfulness meditation.
Visit Anne's website for class-related resources and articles.
We'll explore how to begin or deepen the practice of seated meditation in a way that builds on and complements a yoga practice, and how to practice yoga in a way that nourishes and expresses mindfulness. Each two-hour class will include mindful yoga asanas and pranayama, meditation instruction and a 30-40 minute sitting, a dharma talk, inquiry, and time to ask questions and share discoveries. Over the course of the six weeks, we will systematically develop the instructions for mindfulness meditation to help yoga practitioners cultivate, deepen, and sustain a home meditation practice-while using the vehicle of the yoga asanas to move through an embodied exploration of mindfulness of body, breath, heart, and mind.
All levels of yoga experience welcome. Because the instructions build from week to week, no new students will be accepted after the second class.
Young Adults (18-26) and Seniors (65+ with limited and fixed income) are invited to attend this day for $30.
We keep the lighting low here and evenings can be quite dark, especially in the winter. We recommend bringing a flashlight to events that begin or end after dark.
