WEEKEND INTENSIVE: MOVING TOWARD MASTERY
A yoga practice offers the tools to create a life that leads towards happiness and freedom. These qualities are skillfully cultivated and maintained in the ever-changing circumstances of our lives.
When you reflect on your life and choices, when you look closely at the people, your experiences and surrounding circumstances, do you see the signs of true happiness and freedom?
Even if nothing could immediately change on the outside, are you able to skillfully navigate the story of your mind’s inner life?
In this intensive, we will look closely at the role of our mind in yoga and how we can establish a friendly relationship with the mind that opens the door to our greatest inner resources.
Each session will include a focus for the practices that will challenge and simultaneously cultivate a healthy and powerful mind.
Session 1: Asana as Embodied Action
Learn to bring your mind into a heightened awareness when moving into an advanced pose.
Session 2: Pranayama as Refined Sensitivity
Learn to reflect on simple and subtle adjustments in breathing to still and quiet the mind.
Session 3: Contemplation as Focused Inquiry
Learn to use discrimination to guide your mind in a positive direction.
Session 4: Meditation as Absorbed Wisdom
Learn to recognize the state of mind that leads toward personal freedom and happiness.
During this intensive, you will experience the interconnectedness of all these practices and engage in a unique process that will serve your ongoing study.
Join Nikki for a weekend of Moving Toward Mastery!
