3:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Have you wondered about what else there is to yoga beyond the postures? This workshop delves in to the first two “spokes” on the eight-limbed wheel of yoga: the Yamas and the Niyamas. The Yamas: or the way we interact with the world around us; and the Niyamas: personal practices. These guidelines were presented to the ancient yogis before the asana (postures) were assigned. Yet, in the West, they are often forgotten.
During this workshop you will learn about the five Yamas and five Niyamas, how you can integrate them into your daily life, and incorporate them into your asana practice. The workshop will include time for a yoga practice focused on the integration of some of the Yamas.
5:45 pm – 7:00 pm
Come relax into the support of the Earth and bathe in sound-scapes lovingly crafted to nourish your entire being! This workshop is an acoustic journey that relaxes the mind, activates the body’s natural energetic healing system, and relieves stress and stagnant energy blocks.
Did you know that sound travels over 4 times faster in water than air. Our bodies are 70% water by volume
Water accounts for 99% of the molecules in the body
All of these facts combine to make us the perfect vessel for receiving the gifts of sound and using it to create a potent healing modality.
We will incorporate tuning forks, tingshas, and crystal bowls with a guided meditation into and out of the session. No prior yoga or meditation experience is necessary – everyone is welcome. We will make ourselves comfortable on our yoga mats with bolsters, blankets and props to create a supportive and relaxing environment. We will remain in these restorative positions for the majority of the session. Please come well hydrated to take maximum benefit of this experience.
CEUs are available to Yoga Alliance registered teachers.
