More and more people are turning to yoga, meditation, and complementary therapies: to grow, to heal, to have fun, to learn, to lessen suffering, to be embodied, relieve stress, get stronger, and more.
This immersion series is a relevant way to advance your practice, without the pressure to be “advanced” in poses or specific practices.
We will cover such topics as classical philosophy as well as the ethics of yoga in the world today. You will learn how to establish a satisfying and successful routine/ritual for yourself as well as easy ways to empower self care through Ayurveda and nutrition. As part of the series, you will discover the stabilizing and soothing qualities of mindful meditation, an understanding of basic anatomy, practical breathing techniques, yoga therapeutics and restorative practices.
The series provides an opportunity to not only study poses, breathing techniques, mindfulness, and philosophy, but also to be accountable to yourself and to a community of other students.
This immersion will work well for students with 1 solid year of practice, and a strong commitment to growth and exploration. The series is open to people of varying skill levels, physical abilities, genders, and very approachable to those with injuries. If you have questions about the series please contact TJ at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tuition includes in studio class/practice hours, snacks and tea plus handouts and practice suggestions for between sessions. There will also be ways to stay accountable and communicate with TJ during the duration of the immersion.
