Every moment of our lives is filled with potential for deeper, simpler, more sublime experience. In opening our senses to being fully aware of our reality, we discover insights for consciously refining our actions and ways of being, making our practices and lives more beautiful and joyful in every breath. Rather than only turning our awareness inward, we open to being fully awake in the whole of it all, consciousness in the beauty of existence, even amid complex lives in a seemingly crazy and unpredictable world.
With a focus on conscious exploration and the exploration of consciousness in action, these sessions blend insights from yoga, tantra, science (mostly kinesiology and neuroscience) and philosophy. The Thursday and Friday sessions concentrate on guiding the practice, emphasizing both self-guidance and optimal ways of guiding others. On Saturday and Sunday, we will dive into the practices themselves, exploring adaptive and creative ways to make yoga more accessible, sustainable, and beautiful for all.
This series of classes and workshops can be taken a whole or in its pieces, and they are open to all human beings.
