Chikitsa Vinyasa "Therapeutic Flow" Yoga Master Class
[B] Breath and Energy Work
Chikitsa Vinyasa Yoga is an organic therapeutic system synthesized from the most structurally and energetically intelligent elements found in classical Yoga, rehabilitative medicine, Thai massage, functional training, mindfulness meditation, and modern movement science. This Chikitsa Vinyasa Yoga master class is a fun, explorative, and creative all-levels practice that will feature several avant-garde variations to traditional Yoga asanas. It is intended to assist practitioners in adapting the practice to their individuals needs while empowering their natural artistic fluidity, inner and outer sense of balance, breath-oriented awareness, and mind-body-heart connection.
Soothe Your Insides: Mindfulness and Metta
[C] The Divine Is Within / Contemplative Spirituality
The hidden magic of Yoga is when the practice helps us find a better sense of inner balance and equilibrium. It’s this process of becoming a better, kinder, and more compassionate friend to ourselves that makes the practice truly healing. When practiced in this way, pranayama (yogic breathing) and mindfulness meditation practices can be like little internal, invisible asanas that we do within ourselves throughout the day whether on or off our Yoga mats. In this class, we will briefly discuss the neurologic framework of mindfulness meditation and how yogic breathing techniques influence the physiology of our respiratory systems and support a wellness-based lifestyle. We will then practice a variety of easy and applicable classical yogic mindfulness techniques (that can be done seated or lying down) designed to provide each person with a first-hand experience of Yoga’s deep and intimate relationship with mindful breathing, stress-reducing relaxation, soulful inspiration, and inner ease and peacefulness. The practice will culminate with a traditional extended metta/maitri loving kindness meditation in savasana meant to help soothe your insides..
