Not too tight, not too loose
A mindfulness workshop with our teacher’s teacher, Frank Jude Buccio! If you would like to delve in to the teachings of mindfulness and meditation a bit more, you do not want to miss this.
We are also instructed to “practice, practice, practice!” Disciplined effort (tapas), along with self-study_ (svadhaya). and deeps aspiration (isshvara pranidhana), are three components of the kriya-yoga taught by the great sage, Patanjali. The intention behind this practice of yoga, often referred to as “yogic will,” integrates the two apparently contradictory impulses of effort (abhyasa) and surrender (vairagya). The Buddha used the metaphor of tuning a stringed instrument so that it sounded harmonious and encouraged his students. “Not to tight, not too loose.” How to integrate the polarities of effort and surrender and find balance in practice and in life will be the focus of this workshop. in this Mindfulness Yoga program, wee will practice slow body movement; Vinyasa, Yin, and restorative yoga; and a variety of meditation techniques. These practices, along with discussion, will cultivate attenement to a life of yoga, harmony, inner peace, and freedom. For yoga practitioners with a minimum of 6 months experience.
