Greet the New Year with a new perspective on your yoga practice in TJ’s second annual winter immersion.
Explore yoga at a new depth and make the lessons more applicable in your life on and off the mat.
More and more, people are turning to yoga as a way to grow physically and spiritually, and to cope with the changing demands of modern life. As students become more adept at the foundations, many yearn for a broader view, and for more meaning in their lives and practice. This immersion is a highly relevant way to deepen your practice, without the pressure to be ‘advanced’ in poses or practices or conform to the rigor of a teacher training program.
We will dive into topics such as classical philosophy (using the Yoga Sutras and the Buddhist Eight Fold Path as our guidelines) and also incorporate mudra, bija, a full range of pranayama and the ethics of yoga in the world today.
We will work on how to establish a satisfying and successful home routine/ritual for yourself on the mat. You will explore the stabilizing and soothing qualities of mindful meditation, review basic anatomy, and practice breath skills, yoga therapeutics and restorative practices.
All of this will help you create a multi-faceted practice as a lifestyle that can improve all levels of your being.
Take the opportunity to study asana and the other seven limbs of yoga more deeply. Become a more empowered practitioner in the warm support and community of the sangha that we form together throughout this four month series.
Tuition includes in-class workshop hours, handouts between each session, audio recordings, delicious healthy snacks and herbal teas for each session.
This immersion will work well for students with one year or more of consistent yoga practice, and a strong commitment to growth and exploration. It’s open to students of varying skill levels, physical abilities, genders, and is very approachable to those with injuries. If you have questions about the series, please contact TJ at firstname.lastname@example.org.
