Following the asana practice, we expand our awareness into the deep inner stillness of pranayama. Harnessing our uniqueness, vocalizing through chanting with an open heart.
Saturday Session 1: Dynamic Asana Meditation & Deep Rest
On Saturday we start the day with a dynamic asana practice that takes you deeper into The Counted Method of ashtanga vinyasa yoga. You will practice to the gentle rhythm of sound. The practice guides you towards a more intense focus, quieting the ordinary thinking mind and allowing the light of the wisdom mind to shine through.
In this class John and Julia will share the science behind the sequencing of the Chikitsa Series, offering you an understanding of how to practice with sustainability and longevity for future years of grace. The practice will conclude with a relaxation journeying deep into your own inner stillness.
Saturday Session 2: Pranayama Meditation & Sound Meditation
Breath of life Pranayama is a practice that expresses gratitude to Mother Earth for how she loves us unconditionally with her trees and oceans. In this session, we will harness Her Prana. While lying down, surrendering to the embrace of Mother Earth, you will be surrounded by subtle frequencies of sound that transcend beyond the three-dimensional material realm. Julia and Bart will guide you on a journey of heavenly sounds.
Sunday Session: Dynamic Meditation & Lecture on The Wheel of Yoga
In this last session, we will seal the weekend with playfulness! You get to explore techniques of self-practice to take home, so you can continue the deepening of your practice. Bring your notebook as John & Julia will unpack the wisdom of the wheel of yoga offering you gems of insight that will allow you to connect the dots of this weekend.
