The Yogic Mind - Vinyasa Krama & The Yoga-Sutras

The tradition of Classical Yoga is a contemplative, meditative path, guiding courageous and curious seekers towards the true nature of their enigmatic human existence, giving rise to transformative wisdom and leaving in its wake the fetters of physical and mental suffering.

Over the course of the weekend we will explore the numerous sequences of the Vinyasa Krama method as expounded by the father of modern yoga, Sri T. Krishnamacharya, dissect the psychological framework of the Classical Yoga tradition and apply the most relevant and potent of Patañjali’s Yoga-Sūtras for mental well-being to an extensive, full-spectrum vinyasa practice (asana - pranayama - meditation).

This intensive is created for and accessible to all levels of practitioners and geared specifically towards those individuals with an insatiable curiosity for the enigmatic nature of human existence and a passion to evolve beyond the limitations of the conditioned mind.

 

The Buddhist Mind - Yin Yoga & The Four Foundations of Mindfulness

The practice of insight (vipassana) meditation is built upon the teachings of the Buddhist discourse, the Maha Satipatthana Sutta or The Four Foundations of Mindfulness. The Foundations of Mindfulness form the bedrock of mindfulness meditation practice and are considered the domain of the meditator. Once established through ardent application, The Four Foundations of Mindfulness give rise to transformative experiential insights into ultimate reality, liberating the individual from the fetters of physical and mental suffering.

Our weekend of insight will encompass discussion on Buddhist theory, exploring and integrating in detail The Four Foundations of Mindfulness and vipassana meditation with the practice of Yin Yoga. Each of our sessions will include discourse and application of one of the foundations of mindfulness to our meditation and Yin posture practice, building systematically and progressively throughout the weekend. Through direct-felt experience each practitioner will bare witness to insights capable of radically shifting how we engage with the mind, body and life itself.  

These workshops are created for and are accessible to all levels of practitioners and geared specifically to anyone driven by an innate curiosity for insight into the enigma of life and a passion to move beyond the limitations of the conditioned mind.
