Asana, Pranayama, Meditation: A Pathway to Self-Discovery
Friday, September 14, 2018 @ 7:30 pm–Sunday, September 16, 2018 @ 12:30 pm
Asana, pranayama and meditation are three of the eight limbs of yoga. In a sequenced and full practice, they simply and intricately weave together, nourishing and supporting the subsequent limb without a gap, creating a unique tapestry of yoga. Each limb is the foundation for, and advances to, the beginning stage of the next. When we know how to flow seamlessly in our yoga practice, we can begin to find ease and continuity in our own life as well.
This weekend yoga retreat led by core faculty member, Shari Friedrichsen, will take you on a journey to discover the secrets and treasures stored within the body, mind and heart. Together, we will journey one step at a time through asana, pranayama, and meditation.
This Weekend Yoga Retreat includes:
- Strengthening yourself through breath awareness and yoga postures, naturally guiding you to explore the deeper aspects of the body, heart, and mind
- Enhancing your sensitivity to the power and healing nature of prana through mindful asana practice
- Pranayama practices that guide you even further inward, to unlock what you most need for cleansing, nourishing, and replenishing
- A meditation practice for continued movement inward, toward that which is sacred, profound, and innate
- Refining your meditation practice with enhanced pranayama and systematic pratyahara
Once you become quietly established in the subtle dimensions of yourself through asana and pranayama, you’ll be able to yield into the profound peace and tranquility that comes with an integrated meditation practice. You will leave this seminar knowing how and what to practice so that each limb of yoga guides you more thoroughly into the next, and more deeply into yourself. You will leave with information and tools to create a simple, yet profound, sustainablehome practice. Invest in your practice and direct your asana toward enriching your pranayama, and finally into embodying your true nature.
