Mindful Yoga WS Series: By Shirley Kessel - Drop Ins Welcome!

<BR>Mindful Yoga WS Series: By Shirley Kessel - Drop Ins Welcome!<BR>

Erdenheim: 8 Part Series Starts Jan. 14th

Mindful yoga is movement with attention to develop a present centered awareness. We will practice bringing awareness to sensation of the body, feelings and thoughts that arise during this slower, more deliberate practice. If your present yoga practice feels like a work-out, then this practice will feel more like a “work-in.” We will practice asana, pranayama (breathwork) and meditation.
 
This workshop is for people who want to learn mediation while moving more slowly and with intention. We will explore yoga philosophy while practicing. The themes/intentions are: mindful awareness, setting up your foundation, finding your edge, turning toward difficult moments, joy and letting go. You will learn how to take your practice from your mat to your life. This class is also suitable for those who want to explore a beginning practice of body awareness while stretching.
 
Mindful yoga helps to reduce stress and cultivate wellness while in practice on and off the mat.
 
We will have a longer savansa/meditation at the end of class, and also (an optional) 15 minutes to discuss/ask questions about practice.
