New Program: Introductory 3 class course
“Cultivating the Mind: An Intro to Yoga, Asana, and Meditation”
Yoga, in the original sense of the word, refers to the state in which the mind is completely quiet and under control—it is a state in which there is purely Joy. There are many practices associated with Yoga, including meditation, all of which have the purpose of guiding the practitioner towards experiencing that ultimate state.
Today the word Yoga is used most often to refer to physical postures, yet Yoga is much more than this and offers benefits to the practitioner that are far beyond that of physical exercise or stretching. In fact, the practice of Yoga is extremely practical for anyone, as it allows one to:
– cultivate a quiet mind
– strengthen concentration
– develop new perspectives
– deepen knowledge of the Self within
This program, a series of 3 introductory classes, will focus on providing an introduction and foundation to what Yoga is, as well as the practices of asana (physical postures used to prepare the mind for meditation) and meditation.
