Be Like Buddha: Yoga Postures and Metta Practice to Inspire Peace
Limited Capacity seats available

Evolve your practice by learning what a metta practice is and how it may help you embody feelings of peace and kindness. The Buddha was a yogi who attained tremendous peace inside. Through yoga practice, the Buddha cultivated a firm spine, open hip joints and a big heart to embody great joy. Let’s explore how we as yogis and yoginis come by that same joy. We will combine the powerful techniques of yoga posture and pranayama with the clear and poignant teachings of the Buddha dharma. Learn to use asana to strengthen the body and metta (loving-kindness) practice to embody feelings of kindness, sensitivity, and peace. Beyond asana, you will experience poems of awakening, guided meditation, somatic awareness, and chants resulting in a sophisticated integration of yoga and mindfulness as a means to cultivate peace and self-knowledge.

Cultivating Resilience: Inner Peace in the Mind, Brain, and Body
Limited Capacity seats available

Our modern nervous systems contend with multi-sensory overload, the pressure to produce, an ever-expanding cyberspace, and an endless stream of opportunities to compare ourselves to others. It’s a paradox: most of us seek the balm of inner calm and stillness. And yet, emerging research shows that we benefit more from resilience: the ability to feel challenges fully and return to balance. In this all-day workshop, we’ll experience several practical tools to create resilience—and thus, an “elastic” concept of inner peace—in the mind, brain, and body. We’ll draw from the traditions of yoga, mindfulness, neuroscience, contemplative practice to find ways to remain centered and flexible in a world that is out of balance. Tools will include embodied meditation, mindful movement, connective tissue release work, and more.
