"People want peace so they won't be disturbed by world events, family matters, or personal conflicts...
they want the "ostrich head-in-the-sand" type of peace. Yoga offers a warrior type of peace -
face all of life without being disturbed" - Swami Nirmalananda
This weekend workshop offers a full spectrum of yoga practices to experience finding tranquility amidst the whirling disturbances all around in the world and in your own personal life.
- Yoga poses begin the process by relieving both muscular and mental /emotional tensions
- Ujjayi pranayama draws your attention inside away from external distractions
- Chanting creates an effortless way to drop into meditation
- Meditation sessions quiet the mind and gives you an experience of inner peace
- Talks on yoga philosophy explain why you cannot think yourself into peacefulness and why looking for tranquility by trying to control the external environment is futile.
- Self-inquiry questions and journaling prompt you to discover what is interfering with your experience of peacefulness .
The cumulative effect of all the yoga practices over two days deepens your experience so that you can take this quality of peacefulness into your life. At the end of the workshop, you take home a series of poses as well as instructions on how to meditate effectively in order to cultivate the inner state of tranquility both on the yoga mat and off. The rest is practice.
