Mindful Yoga for Hectic Lives | Sunday November 23rd, 10am-1pm
Most of us live very busy lives: we feel overextended and rushed, pushed in various directions at the same time. Slowing down? It seems impossible if not downright decadent - so much to do, especially at this time of year leading up to the holidays!
In this workshop we will learn the art of paying attention to what is essential. We will practice techniques that help us 'slow down' and go to a place where we can sense ourselves again, our body, breathing, feelings and deeper aspirations. It's not easy to slow down and listen carefully!
Utilizing guided asana sequences in conjunction with calming breathing techniques and visualization as well as sound, the mindful tools of yoga will be presented in a way that you'll be able to practice them on your own afterwards whenever needed. Hand-outs will be available for reference.
The workshop will include a delicious and healthful ayurvedic meal taken together at the end as a time to literally 'nourish ourselves well.
Held at Bhagavat Life. 25 1st Ave, 5th Floor.
