Date: Fridays: Ends Nov. 14, 2012
Times: 4 to 5 p.m.
Traditionally, the practice of yoga was developed to prepare the body and mind for meditation. This class teaches both yoga poses and meditation techniques, emphasizing how the two practices mutually support one another. Each class includes 40 minutes of yoga poses, a short session of pranayama, or breathing exercises, and 20 minutes of guided meditation. The yoga poses are gentle and accessible to all levels of practitioner. The meditation practices are from the Buddhist tradition, but one does not need to be a Buddhist to practice or benefit from them. People new to yoga and/or meditation are especially welcome. People attending class for the first time are asked to arrive 10 minutes early for a brief orientation. Note that this class replaces the former Gentle/Restorative Yoga – Drop-In class.
Classes will be taught by Shrijnana (RYT 200), who was ordained into the Triratna Buddhist Order in 2001. Shrijnana has been practicing yoga for close to 20 years, in both the Iyengar tradition and an Asthangha-inspired vinyasa style. A 2012 graduate of the YogaWorks 200-hour teacher training program, Shrijnana is especially interested in exploring the connection between yoga and meditation.
