Yoga for Meditation

With Gloria Baraquio and Rosalyn White

January 24 - 26, 2020

While many of us approach yoga as a physical exercise that can improve our health and strength, we don’t always get the chance to reap the benefits of yoga as a form and means to meditation.  If you want to deepen your yoga practice, study the mind, and inquire more into the Self, this retreat is for you. We will use Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras as a basis for how and why we practice yoga.  We will learn how to practice our yoga asana (postures) with more breath and presence, which trains the mind for stillness, reflection, concentration, observation, and transcendence.

YOGA

This all-levels yoga class incorporates stretching, breathing, conditioning, and balance postures to cultivate flexibility and strength in the body and mind.

MEDITATION

These sessions will include guidance and instruction in various styles of meditation. They may incorporate movements/walking and breath to ease the mind and body into silence.

INTRO TO THE YOGA SUTRAS

Learn about the foundational yoga text by the sage Patanjali, written around 200 CE.  The Yoga Sutras explore the basic problems of the mind and human suffering and presents an 8-fold path of liberation, which is referred to as Yoga, both the means and the goal.

KUM NYE MEDITATION

Learn the Tibetan style of yoga as a way to practice mindful movements. This class will also include mantras and sitting meditation, as taught by a senior student of Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche.

KIRTAN

Enjoy the vocal and physical bliss of chanting and singing sacred mantras in community.  Kirtan is the congregational singing of holy names. It is usually in a call-and-response format and a great way to train the mind, body, and speech.
