Foundations of Meditation in the Yoga Tradition

Three Sundays - April 7th thru April 21st, 2019

Through meditation we can learn to calm our mind, focus our attention, and develop a deeper understanding of ourselves. As this process matures, it helps us to foster compassion, loving kindness, and a sense of greater fulfillment in our lives.

This three-part series will explore the time-honored methodology outlined by Patanjali in the Yoga Sutras, guiding us as practice yoga techniques that help us sustain our attention, balance our nervous system, and create a richer connection to our highest potential. Through breath-centered yoga poses, pranayama, and guided visualization, we learn to find peace and unfettered happiness in the present moment.

This workshop will provide useful tools for all experience levels and is intended for anyone interested in yoga and meditation. No prior experience is necessary.
