Meditation is one of the 8 Limbs of Yoga (Ashtanga Yoga) and an essential and integral part of yoga practice. Meditation awakens awareness and brings stability and harmony to the mind and emotions.
Yet, many yoga teachers struggle with understanding what meditation is and wondering whether they are doing it right. If you are one of those teachers, this course is for you!
In this 8 week on-line series, learn about meditation from a classical (Lineage-based) perspective and what it means to practice meditation as a modern human. Learn about the benefits of meditation, practice different kinds of meditation (breath meditation, loving-kindness meditation, visualizations, and sound meditation), and most of all get inspired to meditate on a regular basis and/or integrate meditation into your yoga practice. Students with 100% attendance and who have completed the homework will receive a 15% discount for a 2022 local Yoga Retreat or a 3 month online Yoga Membership.
Bring a cushion so you can sit comfortably, bring all the questions you always wanted to ask about meditation but were too shy or scared, and most of all be prepared to dive deep within yourself with a compassionate guide as your companion.
